FOUR PAINTINGS and a PHOTOGRAPH


























































Four of these images are paintings by American abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko (1903-1970). The fifth is a photo I took of Lake Erie on calm afternoon.

they are very expressive, almost like a blurred photo.

Hi Deb, Beautiful. I don't know why--but I really like that first one (on the left)...

Hope you have had a good day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Loved them all!! They do look like blurred photos. Nice on the eyes after looking at numbers all day!

I prefer Lake Erie, by far. Never could warm up to the abstract.

Interesting paintings. Not a lot of detail, but they ooze with mood.

Upper right by Deborah Godin I presume? Nicely done! Very creative. Who knew you and Rothko had so much in common. Wait a minute, has he been hanging out at your lake!

wow. i didnt know rothko painted lake erie. thanks for tellin and showin me. these are nice.

edward said...

wait a minute, did you paint the last one? i like two of Rothko's a lot, the pale blue and the one with the twilight pinkish hue --then i really like the lake erie painting too. these paintings are very restful to the eye. yet have depth and meaning.

I guess one could call those ambient paintings... I get them tho'. And I really like the comparisons. Great idea, Deb.
