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.

Magenta Marsh

This is a 5x7 acrylic with pastel and charcoal on paper. I used to never use grey in my paintings. Because it was GREY! Then, one day I realized while I was playing around with different color combinations that grey can be an effective backdrop for more brilliant colors. Plus it exists in our environment and even during a grey day, there are points of color and light to be observed as well.
