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.

Violet Marsh Four

5x7 mixed media on paper. Another "Violet Marsh". I have been working on some larger - 17x23 - paintings of these this week. I will post the first of them next week. The abstract landscapes are the most restful pieces that I do. I usually work in groups with the same style or theme when I want to relax and just let things flow. I don't always have the mental energy to do my more intricate abstract pieces. My husband is always after me to do more "cityscapes", which are his favorites. I tell him that I am too tired after working with the horses and walking the 4 dogs to do them! And then I have to do the laundry, prepare dinner etc. The work never ends does it?
