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.

Brown & Coral One

This 5x7 acrylic with pastel also has iridescent pastels. I used them on the bluff in the background and in the foreground in peach color and bronze. They are very silky and smooth. I hope to get some more colors! I like them very much. They seem to be best when used as highlights. Let me know what you think. It's hard to see the full effect of their brilliance in a photo though!
