My Inspiration: Slow Swirl at the Edge of the Sea

Mark Rothko - Slow Swirl at the Edge of the Sea - 1944

I love this painting. The colors are wonderful and I can't take my eyes off the different shapes on the canvas. When you watch the video, you find out that the artist painted it soon after he met his wife.

Seeing how Rothko portrayed these characters inspires me to be creative in my songwriting and open my imagination to surprising and different ideas.
