The Value of Color

by Raccoon Fink

Written as part of the Fourth Strike 2023 song jam.

The prompt was to write a song based on a painting, one of which was Mark Rothko's Yellow, Cherry, Orange (1947).

I found audio from an auction of another painting from his collection (Orange, Red Yellow) that at the time set a new record for the sale of a contemporary work of art, and it felt like using that as a backdrop was an interesting way to interpret the prompt.
