achromatic inspiration

top: two thrifted glasses (that if you ask me, need to be filled with chocolate pudding), browsing the early work of William Christenberry
bottom: found photograph of a smiling girl holding a bouquet of flowers, detail of a black and white sketch I made today.

Still nostalgic over here. I've been reading Wendell Berry's book of poems Given, listening to Ella Fitzgerald, working in black and white, stretching canvases for the first time in years, and am intrigued by these photos by native Kansan Gordon Parks (wish I could find the original source).
