Easily one of my top five beloved artists.

And painting like that isn't as easy as it looks, not for Me, anyway.
I always get flat and muddy,
or barely there.

Not Luminescent
or Glowing
or DeeP.

Look at that Pink.
Its like falling into a Sunset.

 That Red.
The color of the Heart in the middle of PaSSion!

His briLLiance, in my humble onion, is the simplicity of his composition, with two or three blocks, made with CoLoR that is alive.

I dream to own a Rothko.


  1. I saw a selection of his work in Tate, London some years ago - but they had painted the walls a muddy grey/brown colour which somehow lost their vibrancy. Such a shame! I'm no good at this type of painting either, like you say so simple in lots of ways but really difficult to recreate

  2. {minky ~ I'm jealous! I haven't even had a chance to see them in a gallery. That's unusual for a gallery to have walls like that, isn't it? I don't think I've ever seen it.
