This work was done after going to the Milwaukee art museum and looking at a Rothko for over an hour. I love the simplicity behind his work and the minimalistic quality. For the most part, Rothko paintings have two colors, one on top of the other, but with this piece I wanted one of the colors to look like it was invading the other's space, and taking it over.
