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.

January Field One

5x7 mixed media on paper. I usually use bright colors - this is more subdued to reflect a winter day.  The bright lavender and pink pastels are able to offer a nice highlight along with the yellow green. I think that they add a lot to this piece. I am trying to use more dark grey and black and then build up interest with these brighter highlights. I also added aqua in the sky for a bit of surprise color.
