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.

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:
