Rothko juice


Which one's the Rothko, and which one's carrot juice? Juicing veggies from my backyard garden, I was struck by the similarity. The tomato juice had a vague Barnett Newman feel, but couldn't pull off nature's forgery as well, thanks to the cutesy canning jar I used.

Yours is way better than Rothko's. I feel much more spiritually moved by tomato juice.

"The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions.. the people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them. And if you say you are moved only by their color relationships then you miss the point."

Blurgh.
