Intimate Moments / The Rainbow.

Untitled (Violet, Black, Orange, Yellow On White And Red) Mark Rothko, 1949. If I told you how much I love you, I think you'd believe it.

Intimate Moments / The Color Violet.

Intimate Moments / The Color Green.

Green and Maroon Mark Rothko, 1953. There's just something extremely charming and mesmerizing about gardening for me. I used to disregard it as a boring and geriatric activity without much meaning. There was a section in the garden in my childhood home that contained these fascinating, blooming red and white rose bushes. When my father…
