Halloween Horrors

“Halloween Horrors”,  black and white charcoal on 9×12″ tan toned paper, 2019

Original available.

 

A chance encounter in a dollar store led to the acquisition of an affordable imitation rat skeleton as my latest model. It was set up in a white still life box atop an empty tunafish can and lit dramatically, producing a suggestive shadow.

It’s title, “Halloween Horrors”, does not so much refer to the werewolfish shadow, as to the amazing availability of cheap plastic single-use decorations, and the coming seasonal onslaught of new carriers for the dreaded pumpkin spice.

Please consume with caution.
