Folded Earth

11 x 14
oil on canvas

The colors and light of the southwest are so different from the cool upper mid-west.  I found myself expanding my usually very limited palette for the southwest work, adding some earth tones - yellow ochre, burnt umber, venetian red, as well as cadmium orange, which I have rarely used but think I will from now on, it's scrumptious.
