And where is this place? The river is the great Columbia — the great natural highway to the Pacific Ocean — that borders between Oregon and Washington in the scenic Columbia River Gorge. The peaceful, sleepy town in the background is White Salmon, the day overcast yet still warm, the season autumn, and the feeling one of quiet contemplation on a weekend afternoon that belongs to you, just you, with no obligations, deadlines, unsolicited phone calls, or overflowing in-box, whether it’s on your desk or desktop.

Peace. Quiet. Space. Contentment.

Talking Heads That Don’t Talk

Two of the New Models in the Studio at Steve Henderson Fine Art

I must say, if the Norwegian Artist ever decided to paint nudes, I would not mind these young women modeling for him. They are built — quite literally, actually — with clothes hanger frames for bodies, and a wardrobe culled from the closets and storage units around the studio and house.

While teaching a portraiture and drawing class at the Walla Walla Community College, the Norwegian Artist mused aloud (no pun intended, by the way) how wonderful a mannequin would be — a huge step beyond the grandchild’s pink ball that the N.A. painted white for the sphere-drawing exercise. The man has only to speak before the manager is on the move, and within a week the cosmetology department of the college was contacted and the heads were hunted down and secured.

We’re not used to our newest residents yet. Roxy the Dog wonders at these new studio inhabitants who look, but do not smell, like humans. The Son and Heir, closing up the studio for the night, was momentarily nonplussed by what he initially thought were late, silent visitors. In the morning, the Norwegian Artist was grateful that the Twilight Zone is not real, and that the mannequins did not move or paint anything during the night.

While the mannequins are not for sale, the Norwegian Artist’s artwork is, and it is available for view and purchase at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery.

More of Steve’s work is available at Samarah Fine Art, Whitefish, MT; Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ; The Lawrence Galleries, Sheridan and Gleneden Beach, OR; and the Maritime Museum at Mystic Seaport, CT.
