And now...something totally different

While out walking the other morning, the last time the sun was visible, I had a peculiar experience.  So that I could enjoy the sun's warmth better I turned my face in its direction and just enjoyed that sensation for awhile.  I began to see this curious shape, complete with the colours of the above painting, floating before my closed eyes.  This pastel comes close to what I saw but it doesn't quite match the experience.  I really like the colour combination's and would like to try this in an oil, large format.  Maybe this is what Rothko saw in his minds eye?
