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.

Mojave Vista One

5x7 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. I enjoy doing these abstract landscapes. They are restful for me. They flow and I just try to stay out of the way and keep them immediate and loose. My geometric abstracts are more difficult and time consuming probably because they are puzzle like. When I have a lack of energy, these abstract landscapes refresh me. Does that make sense?

yes, I understand it! Just dropped by and thought I would say Hi, I always, always enjoy and am so inspired by all your work. You are consistently tuned with the three C's. Love it all!

Thank you Elizabeth! You inspire me as well. I really am enjoying your new works on paper! I also love the way you create abstract flowers.
