light red over black



life has been hectic, frantic even
mostly fun
and some not so fun

through it all my mind drifts back to this




seen at the whitechaple gallery

it enchanted me and i return to the memory of it
it brings calm

its interesting to see the photographs of people looking at the paintings during mark rothko's first solo show in the uk in 1961

there's a photo of a woman looking at the work ....i'm sure she was feeling what i felt


more about this painting here
and about the exhibition here
i enjoyed the film

It is interesting to see how relaxed the viewers were in the short film. I wonder if they would have sprawled out on the benches if say, Renoir or Degas' were being shown? Have a great weekend Sally.
