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.
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.”
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.
More original artwork by the Norwegian Artist is available for view and sale at Steve Henderson Fine Art Online Gallery. Gallery’s Holiday Miniature show, Bozeman, MT; the Maritime Museum at Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT; and Rive Gauche Galleries, Scottsdale, AZ.
Zephyr by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson
Dr. McCoy seems like such a tense, stressed-out man, always on the verge of exploding. Perhaps if he sat down with a Mint Julep more often, feet propped on the table, his mind allowed to wander to those wonderful days with Nancy, the salt monster, he would be less likely to snap at Spock.
But then again, Spock, with his unflappable calm, no doubt brings out the worst in McCoy’s hot southern temper. This is the area, after all, that came up with Coke-batter-dipped, deep-fried peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. And sweet tea. McCoy’s battles with his emotions are nothing compared to his dietary challenges.
So the prescription for the good doctor is to forget that he is not a sailor and to spend the afternoon sailing, on a craft like Zephyr. Better yet, he should hire someone to sail Zephyr while he sits on the deck chair, in the sun, with the Mint Julep and memories of Nancy.
But of course the ultimate cure for Doctor McCoy would be if an ancestor of his, say, in the early 21st century, purchased Zephyr through Steve Henderson Fine Art Galleries and passed it on down the family tree. Then Dr. McCoy could sit in his little white room with the pulsating heart sounds, sip his Mint Julep, and reflect on how he is “a doctor, dammit, not a painter!”
Golden Beach by the Norwegian Artist, Steve Henderson
From the Gnostics to the Grapefruit Diet Gurus, the voices out there promise that if we only buy their book, attend their seminar, or send in a check, we will be on our way to financial freedom, washboard abs, and phenomenal art sales.
Carolyn, the manager of Steve Henderson Fine Art Galleries, addresses this issue in The Secret to Successfully Marketing Your Work, an essay posted on the Steve Henderson Fine Art website blog section.
Golden Beach is a new miniature by the Norwegian Artist, presently available through Steve Henderson Fine Art Galleries.
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.
