Image Hoard: Black & White

It's about time for another stack of inspiration on this here blog.  These are all monochrome (or close enough) and have struck me at one point or another over the last couple of months.  The reasons that an image resonates are always somewhat intangible, and I like to keep it that way, keep it fluid. 


Doreen taking an Alligator ride - Unknown


Young girl in profile - Consuela Kanaga
Speak Flower (detail), hand cut paper - Kako Ueda

Homeless Portrait - Lee Jeffries

Jacopo Ligozzi

A Heroic Abduction, mixed media assemblage - Kris Kuksi

Spanish Dancer (detail) - John Singer Sargent

Annelise Kretschmer

Irises - William Morris


  1. These are lovely.

    Found your site by poking around, looking for Sargent paintings and portraits of homeless men. Perfect!

    ...and it was posted on my birthday, what Kismet. Thanks! xoxo
