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.

Bronze Marsh Two

10x14 water media with pastel and charcoal on paper. I wanted to create a marsh with water in the background. I also am having fun using a cool color - aqua with a warm color - bronze. I try to tie them together with the yellow gold and lavender. I like to use colors in ways you don't expect.
