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.

Fantasy Grey Horse, equine art by Carol Engles


14 x 16 ink and oil pastel on paper. I just felt like doing a piece that was not only abstract, but a bit whimsical. Would look great in a little girl's room who is a bit horse crazy....or adult who still is! To purchase, contact me at:

Pastel Forest, abstract painting by Carol Engles


10 x 14 mixed media on paper. This is a really soft, muted painting with soft line as well. Whimsical, I guess! Paintings do not have to be bold and bright to catch your imagination! To purchase, contact me at:

Los Angeles Intersection, abstract painting by Carol Engles


10 x 14 mixed media on paper. Soft pastel colors with black.  l like the contrast in this! Not every painting needs to be done with dark colors. I actually have had many requests lately for neutral paintings. That is what it great about art, you can create anything with any color!

Blue Lagoon Three, abstract painting by Carol Engles


17 x 23 mixed media on paper. This is an older painting that I decided to offer for sale. I planned on displaying it in our Caribbean bathroom, but it is too big after we put in the other paintings and objects. So, it is looking for a new home. To purchase, contact me at:
