About Me

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.

Aqua in the City One

10x14 mixed media on paper. I had fun doing this piece. It became a puzzle with the lines and squares. I try very hard to make these paintings lively as well as balanced. Abstracts, in my opinion, need to retain the same principles as other art which includes good composition, unity, balance and contrast. I also try to put a center of interest in all my work. This is easy to find in this one. Where do you think it is?
