A touch of red

Over the last few weeks I have been working on a series of portraits and self portraits using the app SlowShutterCam. I really love the effects of slow shutter work with its blur and distortions and not knowing what you might end up with, I find it endlessly fascinating and rewarding. 
Here I've put together the best of the images that incorporate the colour red. It seems to really sing in this sort of work.

  1. How are we looking at the paintings of Mark Rothko these days?
    Is he old hat, replaced in America by more contemporary concerns? Looking at his minimal canvases and their enticing floating squares of subdued paint live at the MOMA recently, I had to stop to wonder whether he still communicates to a modern and younger audience.
    Wahooart.com, the site that sells good canvas prints to order from their database of digital images, has many Rothko prints. I ordered this one, Blue and grey, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWU7F
    , that I have now hanging in my study. I can spend a long time looking at this elusive image that takes me to some other place not in this world.
