Oregon Dreaming on a Coast That Outsplashes California

Coastline, by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson

Big movement happens in a small space in the Norwegian Artist’s Coastline, a 5×7 miniature headed to the 33rd Annual Sagebrush Art Festival, January 29 and 30 at the Running Y Ranch and Resort.

Benefiting the Exchange Club of Klamath Falls, the Sagebrush Art Festival features fine art from fine artists throughout California, Washington, and Oregon, and Steve’s works of the  Oregon Coast feature strongly in the collection of his works there.  Coastline joins 10 others for the festival.

The Norwegian Artist invites you to join the e-mail list for the once-a-month, short and informative, e-mail newsletter of Steve Henderson Fine Art.

Madonna and Child — A Timeless Classic

Madonna and Toddler by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson

For those under the age of 40, this time before Christmas might be a good time to mention that Madonna has been around for a long, long time; she isn’t British; she is not a pop singer; and she is doubtless one of the world’s best known mothers.

That being said, the Italian term Madonna, which was previously used as a form of address for a lady (now replaced by Signora), is one of those stretchy artistic terms that a painter can apply to a work of a mother and her child, usually the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child, but this being the 21st century, we find ourselves with freedom and flexibility to playfully play with words.

The setting for this portrait is the living salon of the Hughes House, an historical Victorian era home on the southern Oregon Coast. Where this modern mother and her rambunctious child now enjoy a moment of peace and temporary quiet, a large  Irish family of dairy farmers once settled in for an evening’s rest by the light of a kerosene lamp and a coal fire.

Life marches on. Mothers hold their children. Children grow up and have children of their own. The bond between parent and child passes from generation to generation.

Madonna and Toddler is available through the artist at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery.

Through the holiday season and into the new year, Steve’s works are in special shows at Samarah Fine Art, Whitefish, MT; Planet Bronze Gallery’s Holiday Miniature show, Bozeman, MT; the Maritime Museum at Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT; and Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ.

More original artwork by the Norwegian Artist is available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery. Steve’s work is also available at Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ and The Lawrence Galleries, Sheridan and Gleneden Beach, OR.

If the Men on Star Trek Wore Kilts, How Short Would Those Kilts Be?

The Divide by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson

In the enlightened age of Star Trek, such primitive weaponry as bombs were no doubt obsolete, which means that characters like Yeoman Rand, the blond, buxom secretarial sort who nonetheless wore the red uniform of engineering and security, could no longer be described as “bombshells.”

Wench Warps?

Phaser Babes?

Of course, we know that Yeoman Rand was appreciated for her brains, not her looks, which is why she was given the all important duty of hovering around the captain’s console until the time was right to hand him a flat, black, plastic box that required his signature. This done, she continued to hover. This job was even more important than that of the red-clad man off to Lt. Sulu’s left, who leaned over a lighted console, pushing buttons and falling backwards when the Enterprise was attacked.

For Yeoman Rand, we have chosen the Norwegian Artist’s work The Divide, principally for its large, rounded, looming, buxomy mountain in the background. As the altitude of the lake is high, we recommend that Ms. Rand slip on a pair of leggings and a sweater before she and the Captain enjoy a picnic on the rocks.
