Just Desserts at Beth Urdang Gallery

Red and Green, 30 x 40, oil on linen
For those of you that find yourselves in Boston in the next month, please stop by the Beth Urdang Gallery for their current Exhibit "Just Desserts". I'm pleased to have been asked to participate.
The show continues through May 17, 2014. The gallery is located at 129 Newbury St. Boston, MA 

My paintings Red and Green and Foiled Again are among those selected for the show.

Can't make it to Boston? See the show Online

I had a great time painting this photorealism still life. The striped background with the red and green striped candy and glass atlas jars along with their reflections was a wonderful challenge. I'm pleased with the results.

Kodak by K Henderson

Kodak, 20 x 20, oil on linen

My father was an enthusiastic amateur photographer starting his hobby back when he was a kid. I have many of his camera. These vintage cameras are a work of art on their own and I can't believe I've never used one in a painting.

Flight of the Bumble Bee

Flight of the Bumble Bee, 12 x 12. oil on cradled board

Yes, I know these are Honey Bees and not Bumble Bees but I like the title. And it fits in my my current Flight Themed paintings.

My favorite playing cards are the Jokers because they are so varied and this one with the bee is one of my favorites.

Love out of Bounds

Super Kiss, 30 x 30, oil on Linen

I just learned that "Super Kiss" was honored with a First Place award at the Evergreen, CO Center for the Arts "Love out of Bounds" valentines show.

This painting is another trompe l'oeil in my Chocolate Kiss series. This includes a panel from a Superman Comic and of course that's Lois Lane giving the Super Kiss.
