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 Sunset

17x23 mixed media on paper. I have not done many pieces with a sunset in them. But I think I will do more! I go back and forth between geometric abstracts and abstract landscapes. The geometrics are more of a brain teaser for me and the landscapes come out easier. So, I think I must be lazy some days and then this is what happens! I actually did this painting a few weeks ago and I put it up on the wall and studied it. I was trying to get a lot of depth with this and not overdo the line in the foreground. I am happy with the result. I hope to come up with some others that compliment this one.
