New works in alizarin

Here is a new work, as I explore the color red (specifically, alizarin crimson). This piece is 30" square. I am learning what this color can and can't convey as far as mood, associations and suggested three-dimensional depth, as well as how the physical properties of this paint differ from the blues I've come to know so well recently.
