Time Passes by K Henderson

Time Passes, 12 x 9, oil on canvas

This is one of my favorite small cowboy paintings. I like the subdued pale, cool colors with the red accent on the hat.

I’ve painted this piece of Southwestern Pottery several times. It’s one of my favorites. I love using strong lights in my still lifes.

Sacred Spirit – American Indian

Sacred Spirit, 30 x 30 , oil on canvas
This Plains Indian wears a headdress of feathers, trade cloth and beads. His face is painted blue which is a sacred color in some tribes. The hand on his face represents a battle honor. It is a Coup mark which indicates that he has gotten close enough to touch an enemy in battle. This is considered braver than killing from a distance.

Pale Fire

K Henderson painting

Pale Fire by K. Henderson

Pale Fire, 40 x 30, oil on canvas

This Plains Indian wears a headdress of feathers, beads, ermine tails and a bird. I left the headdress partially out of focus to make the painted face the focal point of the painting.

This painting was inspired by a photo taken by Edward R. Curtis.
