May Newsletter - K. Henderson Art

Newsletter May 2009
 Greetings. The April Showers didn't bring much moisture here in the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico But we did have 8 wildfires in one day due to lightening. We are thankful for the volunteer firefighters. The hummingbirds are buzzing around the feeders and the return of the vultures are a sure sign that winter is over.Newsletter May 2009
Oil Painters of America

Over 1,500 artists entered the competition with a total of 2,400 oil paintings. Only 200 works of art were selected.

I'm am honored to be one of the selected artists with my painting "Jack in the Box". Jack-in-the-Box is oil on masonite, 16″ x 18″. The toys are from my collection of early 20th century toys. The toys include a jack-in-the-box, a spinning top, alphabet blocks, and a jointed doll with a china head. Also in the painting is an antique book.

I will be attending the Artists’ Reception and Awards Ceremony Sage Creek Gallery and La Fonda Hotel 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. Friday, May 1, 2009. I hope to see you there.
