"Eaton Canyon Sycamore" ©

Victoria Finlay has written more about color in her book, "Color, A natural History of the Palette" then imaginable. One of the first chapters is on the color Ochre, describing the mines in Australia and how Ochre played a major role in the lives of the Aboriginal people. While reading about Ochre, I used a great deal of the pigment in the painting of "Eaton Canyon Sycamore", making the experience all the more pleasurable.
