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 Two

5x7 acrylic and pastel. This one also has iridescent pastels. These are fun to work with and do add a new dimension to the art I think. Sometimes I use watercolor and other times I use acrylic. The advantage of acrylic for me, is that I am able to "scratch off" some of the color to create line which I can't do as easily with watercolor. This piece matches one that I did earlier this month. If you're interested in these or would like a larger version of one of them, let me know. They do make nice larger paintings I think.
