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 Block Party Two

This is a 17x23 mixed media painting on paper. It has a "companion" piece that I posted earlier this month. As I have said before, Prussian Blue is my favorite blue and I really like it in combination with gold or ochre. Sometimes you find yourself infatuated with certain colors. And it is hard to break away and try others. I like Prussian Blue so much, that I don't care if I use it all the time!
