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 Block Party One

This is an 17x23 water media with pastel and water soluble crayon on paper. I love Prussian blue. I use it all the time. It has a bit of green to it and I love to contrast it with gold or ochre. I think of these pieces as city streets, corners or city blocks. Most of all, they are fun to do and I hope they convey that fun and energy.
