Sacred Honor by K Henderson

Sacred Honor by K HendersonSacred Honor, 36 x 36, oil on canvas

The American Indian was quick to assimilate European items into their culture. Did you know that many ‘War Bonnets’ are made on the crowns of felt hats? The feathers on this bonnet are attached with red Trade Cloth.

The scarf is silk. The vest and skirt could be bought at any mercantile or might be government issued. Even the bones in his ‘sash’ are cow bones manufactured specifically for Indian Trade.

The eagle feathers and elk teeth are traditional symbols of honor and wealth.

Angel of Prairie by K Henderson

Angel of the Prairie, oil on linen, 36 x 30

This is my latest Silver Screen Cowgirl. Like the others in the series, this oil painting is in sepia tones to take us back in time to the Saturday Matinee.

The Cowgirl wears a beaded buckskin jacket and a cowboy hat. She holds her six shooter as she rests against a rail fence.
