Golden Eagle by K Henderson

Golden Eagle is 40" x 30", oil on linen

This painting is a continuation of my 'Top Hat" series. In the 1880's The Powers That Be in the United States Government would invite American Indian leaders to Washington. There they were given gifts such as clothing, flags, hats etc. The recipient would then use these items as they saw fit. This hat is decorated with parts of a flag, an emblem from a helmet, ribbons and feathers

Red Pot and Peppers Still Life by K. Henderson

Red Pot and Peppers, 30 x 30, oil on canvas
It's been a while since I've created one of my 'Pot' still lifes. I've always enjoyed painting them so I felt it was time for a new one.

This painting has 3 pots, red peppers and a photo of an American Indian woman.

This painting is available directly from me for a limited time. And as always I pay for shipping within the USA.
