It's Always 6 O'clock~Oil Painting by K Henderson

"It's Always 6 O'clock" is oil on canvas, 24 x 30.

I'm a BIG fan of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I have over 300 copies of that book with many different illustrators.
I've been wanting to do a painting based on the book for quite some time. A Mad Tea Party is my favorite chapter  so that is what inspired this still life. "It's Always 6 O'clock" is oil on canvas, 24 x 30.
I've used this battenburg lace in several of my paintings and I think I'm finally figuring out how to paint it

The Flyers~Oil Painting by K Henderson

The Flyers, 12 x 12, oil on canvas

I love old books! I buy them at library book sales, thrift stores, get them as gifts or pick then up where ever I can find them. I love them in pristine condition or old and torn. This book, The Flyers by George Barr McCutcheon, was published in 1907 and was read by many at the Muskogee, OK, Public Library before it was retired and purchased by me about 23years ago.

Don't you love the little portrait on the cover? It's a separate print pasted to the blue, embossed cloth cover.

Blue Vase and Silk~Oil Painting by K Henderson

 
Blue Vase and Silk is 30" x 30" oil on canvas.

This painting took FOREVER to complete. I started it with a grisalle underpainting  (a black and white painting) and then applied layers and layers of color to the vase, each layer having to dry before the next layer was applied.
Many challenges in this painting. I had to paint the blue vase plus the fabric behind the vase  and the reflections in the vase.
And the silk! My favorite fabric. It seems to capture and reflect all the colors of the rainbow.
I can't wait to do another painting like this

Strawberry Delight~Oil Painting by K Henderson




Strawberry Delight ,11" x 14"

It shows strawberries in a cut glass dish, on a piece of battenburg lace.
For such a small painting, it was really a challenge. I like painting glass and I really had to keep focused to get all the geometric shapes just right.

Aces and Eights ~Oil Painting by K Henderson



Aces and Eights, 12" x 9"

Aces and Eights  It is 12" x 9", oil on board.
Aces and Eights is known as the Dead Man's Hand in a two-pair poker hand. The hand gets its name from the legend of it being the five-card-draw hand held by Wild Bill Hickok at the time of his murder (August 2, 1876). It is accepted that the hand included the aces and eights of both the black suits. There is still debate about what the 5th card was.
