My husband and I recently went to the play Red and I so enjoyed it.  It is  ‘an intense bio-drama of the renowned modern artist (and Oregon-raised) Mark Rothko, Red earned critical laurels in its New York run last season. Set in the 1950s, when Rothko was commissioned to create a series of large pieces of art for the new Four Seasons Restaurant, Red tackles big questions about art—what it takes to create it, and where it belongs in our world.’

The Portland Art Museum currently has an exhibit of Rothko’s work that runs until the end of May so I need to make my way over there, as well.

    Oh I love Rothko’s work – the play sounds fascinating. Thanks for the Art Museum info – will head off this weekend to have a peek. Love your new ‘do’ too – have a great weekend (hopefully the sun stays around for a while). Annie x

    just saw the exhibit yesterday at the museum. so good. something that stuck with me was a quote at the entry: “the subject of painting is painting itself”
