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.

Sportspark in Spring, abstract painting by Carol Engles


18 x 24 oil pastel and ink on paper. This is another "Sportspark" painting. Lots going on here. So fun to do these paintings, but more difficult to do than you think. I need to keep it balanced and loose at the same time. This piece is more to the balanced side, than the loose side. I need to have names for these abstracts, so I call them "Sportspark", but they could be anything. If interested in purchasing, this painting, contact me at:

Bay Stallion Portrait, equine art by Carol Engles


18 x 24 oil pastel and ink on paper. This portrait has a very expressive eye. Even though, I do horses in an abstract style, I always try to portray their eyes more realistically. Hope you like. To purchase this painting, contact me at:
