rothko like? nah. there’s no other rothko but rothko.

mark rothko is one of my favorite painters. i was going to make a claim that this composition was rothko-inspired. but then i looked at his wiki page, and i thought “oh no you can’t compare this simple color block to a rothko painting. his blocks expand. and contract. and stir up emotions from death to enlightenment. they are spiritual. how dare you compare these simple tonal blocks to his work?” then i got over it, and thought; “ok,  i was thinking about him when i pushed these balsam needles into place.” it’s an homage if not a recreation. an appreciation. thank you, mr. rothko, for whatever of you is in this, and whatever of me is aware of you.

balsam needles, old and young 

  • Very well dine and written my friend.
    I’ve only just begun writijg a blog very recently and hsve seen many bloggers simply rehash old ideazs but add vesry little
    of value. It’s good to see a helpful article of some actua value to yur
    readers and I.
    It is actually goijg down on my list of things I need
    to emulate being a neww blogger. Visitor engagement and material value are king.

    Some wnderful suggestions; you’ve certainly got on my list of peoplle to follow!

    Continue the terrific work!
