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.

Futura City Two by Carol Engles

8x10 water media with charcoal. I have "this thing" for charcoal lately. You may wonder why someone who enjoys using lots of color would be infatuated with charcoal! Well, I think it is because I love the line! I can't help myself. I also wanted to do work with more of an edge to it and charcoal is perfect for that. It is interesting to me that one of the world's oldest art mediums is great for a modern look. Let me know what you think.
