Paintings in Crab Fat Magazine

Check out my two paintings in the latest issue of Crab Fat Magazine! One is rather morbidly titled "Mrs. Thorwald" while the other is a part of a series of black and white paintings I've been working on for a few years now.

Both paintings were created back in my Ann Arbor days. I know for a fact that I painted "Mrs. Thorwald" soon after watching Rear Window for the first time. To jog your memory, the woman murdered at the beginning of the movie is named Mrs. Thorwald. Yes, I know. Morbid.

I don't have as good a story for the Black/White #7 painting. I do remember that it was one of the first paintings I ever sold though. So that's happy.

Maybe happy enough to counterbalance the darkness of "Mrs. Thorwald"?
