The Artist Says:


 
It's amazing how a landscape or coastal scene deepens when a human being is part of it. Whether the figure is the focal point, as in Queen Anne's Lace, or more subtly incorporated, as in Wild Child, that human element draws us in and closer to the entire painting.
I concentrate on the innocence, yet sophistication, of the 21st century woman. There is this misconception that innocence and naivete are interchangeable, and unless a model is bored, sullen, and provocative, then she does not possess wisdom, intellect, or attraction. This is fallacy indeed. 
In works such as Promenade, Lady of the Lake, Enchanted, Cadence, and others, I see, interpret, find, and paint the inner beauty that shines forth from truly stunning, yet gracious, young women. They are confident yet kind, bold yet humble, innocent yet wise.



Collectors Say:


 
I am fortunate to have two pieces of Steve's art gracing my home!  I love the way he captures the "big picture" in his artwork.  Noticing details like the expression of the sky or the angle and warmth of light on the scene is what makes Steve's artwork extraordinary.  The Old Master's technique that he used on the two pieces I have, lends itself to a classic, clean style that appeals to practically everyone.  Probably my favorite thing about Steve's art is the texture and movement of the paint on the canvas!  It's almost like I can see him sitting in a chair, canvas on easel, brushes and palate in hand, enjoying the out-of-doors as he creates, and stroke by stroke, I'm following along as he turns a simple canvas into a timeless heirloom.

Dealers Say:


 
 
I appreciate Steve’s talent for capturing the essence of the subjects he paints, whether it is people, landscapes, or wildlife. Visitors to the gallery are drawn in to his use of color and appreciate the versatility of his mediums. His willingness to experiment with color and texture captures the eye and draws you in to his view of the world. Definitely an artist to keep your eye on.

Steve, I have just become aware of your work, and I am fascinated. The humanism and colors of your pictures are wonderful.

Biography


A lifetime fine artist, Steve Henderson pursued a successful career in illustration before turning to fine art full time. His paintings are sold and displayed nationwide through exhibitions, shows, and galleries, as well as licensed for online, wholesale, and retail sale. To read Steve's story, click on this link.
 
About his art, Steve says: "I look for, and paint, beauty, as a counteracting effect of our media-saturated fascination with ugliness. Yes, the world is a brutal place, but it is also our home. There is peace, serenity, quietude, thoughtfulness, majesty, grace, joy, and hope in this home of ours -- and that is what I paint."
 
Contemporary realist Jack Beal landed upon Steve's website and wrote Steve, “I have just become aware of your work, and I am fascinated. The humanism and colors of your pictures are wonderful.” His thoughts mirror that of collectors, viewers, and gallery owners, many of whom comment on Steve's free, yet controlled, use of color and brushtroke movement.
