Warming to Rothko

Warming to Rothko
Oil on Wood
"...a dynamic combination of warmth, sunshine and lightning." Those were words used to describe Marjorie Claire Fox in a lovingly written New York Times obituary this week. It was her picture that caught my eye. An engaging, open, compelling face. I would have liked to have known this person. Reading about her enlivened a morning clouded with a world gone mad, in the same way these women in orange and yellow brought life to Rothko's "Untitled, 1969" at the De Young Museum's Modernism exhibit last week. Warmth, sunshine, and lightning. We could all use more of that.
