Mark Rothko : Number 10 1950

This is Mark Rothko's Number 10.
Is it not just lovely.
Bright shining and peaceful at the same time
If you click on it you can see it in a larger size
Look at the softness of the edges
Rothko believed that his paintings conveyed emotions
They all do
Colours placed on the canvass
Not juxtaposed or ordered
Rothko places them there because that is where they should be
I suppose I am just a bit tired and emotional
This reminds me of the sun and the beach as a child
Of good and glorious blessings
That I am not as I was

Thanks Mark - I hope you're there to paint in the renewed world.
