Great minimalist painting, it has the feel of Mark Rothko about it.

Caroline said...

Beautiful blue a really lovely painting full of quiet beauty. You paint these colourfields so perfectly Jala.

I was hoping to see a post with Rumi in it.
Ruuuuumi, where aaaaare you?

What Ian said about Rothko- ditto me.

Jala Pfaff said...

Ian, Bonnie - Yeah, this one definitely feels even more Rothko than usual for me. I like to think I was born the artistic love child of Rothko and Albers.
Bonnie - My camouflaged little boy, he is.

Caroline, Casey - Thank you very much. It thrills me to see and to make paintings like this. It's indescribable.

This is a lovely painting, Jala. I especially like the subtle color shifts within.
I think the animals like their beds without the covers!

this painting is wonderful and dreamy Jala!
one thing that struck me in the photos was the contrast between the animals snuggling into the warm duvet and the life of the people in India.

Hi Jala, I am beginning to think that you are channeling Rothko. Beautiful ethereal!
