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.

Marsh Morning, large

17x23 mixed media on paper. This is a larger version of a smaller painting I did. I am intrigued with pastel colors and black, so I hope to do more. This was a very relaxing piece to do. Since I had already done a smaller version, this didn't tax my creative juices that much. But, I did have to pay attention to line. It is very easy to either overdo or under do line. I think I got a good balance here.
