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.

Yellow & Rust Sky

This is an 8x10 watercolor with pastel. I added some aqua and pink as a surprise contrast. I think I am going to do some more pieces with this color combination. I am also working today with dark blue and green combinations. My theory on color is that it is OK to combine colors that aren't commonly used as long as there are base colors that hold the entire piece together.
