When I picked D up from the Kindergarten  he led me to the art wall where their daily paintings are hung to dry. They made remakes of paintings by known artists displayed at different art museums. I was told by the pedagogue that the kids each took a postcard to copy.

D’s piece was Saffron by Mark Rothko. Rothko was a Russian-born American painter, classified as an abstract expressionist to which he does not agree.

I asked him why he chose this one and he said this one is easy to paint because the colors are only orange and yellow.
