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.

Red Violet Four

Time for brighter, stronger colors. Actual, I really wasn't thinking of much, other than almost clashing colors that would pop off the page. When someone asks me what one of my abstracts represents, I have to say that sometimes they are a field, horizon or a cityscape etc. Many times they just come out of my head as form and color - nothing  specific. That's why abstracts are so much fun, they don't have to represent anything. The viewer can see or feel whatever...
This could be viewed as a carnival or circus?
