“To me art is an Adventure into an unknown world, which can only be explored by those willing to take the risk.”  Mark Rothko

Art is an Adventure


More playing with photography this morning, thinking about contrasts and tone, line, texture, no colour.  Taking a risk.


A Rothko quote coupled with a black and white photograph!  The master of colour Mark Rothko in a post, devoid of all colour.  That, is not at all what fans of Rothko would be anticipating.


So,  it was a risk on my part.

Even so,  I love the tree image for its scale and how the mind can imagine climbing skywards on a fantastic adventure.

In art, I don’t mind taking risks.

There’s not a lot of genuinely scary things that really can happen to me,  now is there?!!




Rothko’s second quote that resonates:

“A painting is not a picture of an experience,  but is  the  experience.”



Mark Rothko,  a brilliant man, gorgeous colour filled paintings.  If you haven’t seen his work before – go straight to Google for a colour fest!        cheers, Debi
