I know. In today's title, the word "something" is misspelled. That incorrect word is made of "sum" and "thin", which are both appropriate to yesterday's drawing. I flattened the background with abstract planes. I constantly look for a direct manner of engagement. This drawing is broken into vertical, roughly rectangular, sections. When I make such a drawing I often think of Mark Rothko's late work. Rothko is one of mid-twentieth century's most successful artists. Rothko's art still resonates with today's viewers. Calendars of his work continue to be BIG sellers. You can not find a calendar with Willem de Koonings paintings, but many are made with Rothko's paintings. I wonder about this, so I occasionally react to it in my drawing, thus my "little sumthin".
