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.

Morgan Horse, gestural ink drawing by Carol Engles

14 x 16 ink on paper. One of my favorite things to do - gestural drawings in ink. Surprisingly difficult to do because there is no room error. You just have to go for it and hope it turns out! HA! $100 plus $25 U.S. shipping. To purchase, this drawing, contact me at:

Collage Study, One, abstract collage by Carol Engles

 5 x 8 found paper, charcoal, water media and acrylic on paper.  I am beginning to create collage on both paper and canvas. I am excited to be taking this new direction with my art. I will still create and enjoy pastel and watercolor on paper. However, I will be devoting more of my "art time" to the exciting  world of collage.
