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.

Monty, canine portrait by Carol Engles

This is a portrait of our beloved Yorkie, Monty. This is the first dog portrait that I did. Of course, it was of Monty. He was proud to be the first. We miss him so so much!
I do commission portraits of horses in a semi-abstract style, but prefer to do dog and cat portraits in colored pencil in a more realistic style. If your are interested in a portrait, contact me at:
