Ocean Breeze

Ocean Breeze by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art

Emotional Realism — what is it? Ocean Breeze epitomizes this term by its strong color, warm tones, sense of freedom and joy. One can hear the surf and feel the breeze as a young woman lifts her arms to the setting sun of the Pacific Ocean. Or, are we on the opposite coast of North America, and she greets the rising sun of a new day?

Ocean Breeze is available in the following ways:

Fine art makes fine gifts.

Gathering Thoughts

Gathering Thoughts — Original Oil Painting on Canvas — 36 x 30 — at Steve Henderson Fine Art.

A young woman, absorbed in her thoughts and dreams, strolls through the ocean’s surf.

Catching the Breeze

Companion to Ocean Breeze, Catching the Breeze follows our young woman as she continues her walk along the beach — toward the setting sun. Youth, life, innocence, joy — the sounds and colors of the sea embrace eternity.

Available through Steve Henderson Fine Art.

Ocean Breeze

As a painter, I love fabric — its fluidity and movement, in conjunction with vibrant color, adds much to the feeling of a work. The young woman stands where surf and sand meet; facing the west and the setting sun, she is unaware of the irony of her exuberant, joyful pose — though she faces the end of the day, she stands at the beginning of hers.

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.

If You Are Hired as a Crew Member on the U.S.S. Enterprise, Don’t Wear Red

Opalescent Sea by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson

Look at this painting,  Opalescent Sea.

Can you spot the red-garbed security agent from Captain Kirk’s landing crew?


Well, don’t worry, because the red-garbed security agent is where he always is — he’s gone, at sea, having been phasered down or microblasted or transformed into a pile of dry, dusty body chemicals. Sometimes there were two or three red-garbed security men in the landing party, and the fun for the viewer was in guessing how they would all be eliminated.

In the three years of the original Star Trek run, not many of these star-crossed, professionally trained commandos made it back onto the ship, and those that did found themselves infested with some disease or bacterium that shortened their lives anyway. One wonders how Captain Kirk replaced the many crew members that he lost — 1) where did he get them out in deep space and 2) how did any agree to the job, knowing how their many predecessors had fared?

One also feels sorry for the actors who played these doomed men: “You’ll have ten seconds, tops, and five of them are with your eyes closed. This is your big break.”

Fortunately, one thing that is not disappearing into piles of dust is the artwork of the Norwegian Artist, who paints regularly and prolifically, producing superlative landscapes, seascapes, and figurative works. Opalescent Sea is presently at Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ, along with a collection of seascapes by the Norwegian Artist.

More original artwork by the Norwegian Artist is available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery.
