Pale Fire

Pale Fire by K Henderson copy

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

Wild West!

Wild West by K. Henderson

Wild West!, 36 x 36, oil on linen

As I reported recently, I’m painting a series of oils based on the American Indians that preformed in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. I’m using photos from the late 1800’s as my reference and inspiration.

But what would this series be without a painting of Buffalo Bill Cody?

Time is at Hand

Time is at Hand

Time is at Hand, 30 x 30, oil on canvas

This painting shows a Plains Indian with a black hand (coup mark) painted on his face. This is a sign of Bravery. a sign of bravery. To be first to touch the enemy was regarded as the bravest deed of all, it was even a point of bravado for a single warrior to rush in among the enemy and strike one with quirt, coup stick or gun before attempting to fire, thus risking his own life.

His shirt is decorated with beads. He holds a shield.
