Wears His Glory by K. Henderson

Wears His Glory , oil on linen, 30 x 40

Despite what you may have seen in the movies, the Plains Indians didn't (and don't) wear fancy beaded and quilled shirts everyday. They are for Special Occasions.

These highly decorated shirts were created for honored community members. The hair locks are said to embody personal power. And they add beauty to the shirt

Wishin' on a Star

Wishin' on a Star, 40 x 30, oil on linen

By now you've figured out that I'm a fan of old (and not so old) western movies. Here is my latest Silver Screen Cowgirl.

The title was inspired by the lyrics from "Along the Navajo Trail". (Click the link to hear Sons of the Pioneer sing this classic song.)

I love to lie and listen to the music
When the wind is strummin' a sagebrush guitar
When over yonder hill the moon is climbin'
It always finds me wishin' on a star

"Along the Navajo Trail" as written by Dick Charles, Edgar Eddie De Lange, Larry Markes

SOLD at Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa
