Inspired by Rothko

We spent some time last weekend at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art which has rearranged almost everything as a result of its two new buildings and the extra space they provide.* Nonetheless, I managed to find my favs - the 20th century Americans, the Abstract Expressionists. So it's not surprising that the very first piece I make afterwards shows the influence of Mark Rothko. This is just a start, will develop it more over the next day or two then stitch.

*The BAD news - They have eliminated the costume and textile gallery!!


  1. Hi Deborah-I love your artwork that was inspired by Mark Rothko. Interested in seeing how it progresses. Rothko is one of my favorite artists.

  2. Thanks Mia - I've almost finished it and hopefully will get it off to the framer today! I'll post it when it's done in a few hours; there've been a few changes since yesterday.
