Happy Birthday Mark Rothko!

Happy Birthday Mark Rothko!
September 25, 1903

“I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.”

    Thank you, segmation! I have been addicted to Rothko’s colors for years…just can’t get enough of them…which goes to show how much color influences us!
