About Me

My Photo
Murrieta, CA, United States
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I am a mixed media artist who lives in Murrieta, California. I work in acrylics, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and other water and drawing media. My main subjects are abstracts, abstract landscapes, florals and gardens, equine abstracts and dog portraits. I love to use color! I try to incorporate the three C's in all of my work - color, contrast and composition! Most of these paintings are for sale. Please check with me for availability and prices if not posted.

Orange and Violet, One, abstract painting by Carol Engles


17 x 23 mixed media on paper. This is an interesting color combination, don't you think? For some reason, the gold, orange and purple work well together. To purchase, contact me at:

Peaceful pasture, One, abstract landscape by Carol Engles


 17 x 23 mixed media on paper. This past week I was suffering from a bout of tendinitis in my upper left arm and shoulder, so I rested it as much as I could. I had started this painting and I wanted to finish it, so I did - with my right hand. We, left handers live in a right handed world, so we do use our right hand more than you might think. But, this is the first time I have used my right hand in my art. So, to my surprise, it turned out well I think. It took a lot longer than usual and I had to make some corrections along the way! HA! In honor of my right hand, this painting is specially priced at $100. If you are interested, contact me at:
