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.

Desert View One

10x14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. This is done in a sketchy style. Pastels don't have to be smudged and blended. I used charcoal first and then wetted it slightly and added some watercolor and watercolor crayon. Then I added pastel and finished with more charcoal. This is a technique and style that suits me, because I like to work fast and I like work with lots of texture and line. I am already planning more of these abstract landscapes.
