From Keith Keppel catalog 2016 MIXED SIGNALS EM 31" (Reckless Abandon X (Reckless Abandon x reverse sib to Ringtone)). Not so much a landscape statement as a closeup study in complexity. How do you describe it? Standards are silvery lavender with tan marginal band, plus fine plumbago violet veins toward the outer edge. Falls are nightshade purple, but with a large white blaze strongly veined damson purple. Then add a solid bright cadmium yellow beard to jazz up the whole ensemble. Different! #09-85C. $50.00.
