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.

High Desert Grasses One

5x7 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. I did this in a sketchy style which I enjoy. I don't have to think or plan these pieces that much - they just come out! I love to scribble and play with charcoal. I think I may do some buildings - houses, barns and other structures - with charcoal in this style and see what happens.
