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.

City Wires Five

10x14 watercolor with pastel on paper. I was in the mood for these lighter, softer colors. It is actually Spring colors in Fall I guess! I love to work with bronze, Burnt Sienna and browns, so I will be getting to work with those colors soon! But, today, these colors caught my fancy!

Hi, Carol! I just love your abstracts! Funny we were both thinking of dressage horse paintings and posted them the same day! LOL!! Don't stop! It was really great! JEN

Thanks Jennifer. I thought it was "cosmic" as well that we posted dressage horse paintings at the same time! I am doing a few equine abstracts. My horse friends have encouraged me - so we'll see what happens. I, like you, love horses - all different breeds and disciplines. I also really enjoy your work and the stories behind you art. It is very engaging.
