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.

Canyon Rocks One

5x7 mixed media on paper. I am doing a series that I call "Canyon Rocks". Of course, they are abstract, so they could be anything! I have had this idea in my head for awhile and I am having so much fun doing these with the streaks and intersections, if you will, of colors and shapes. For some weird reason, I don't want to do anything with too much roundness or circles. So, this style suits me best right now! Hope you like it. I will be doing a lot more of these and some larger ones as well.

Great expressiveness in this one. Keep going...

Thanks DJ! I have no idea where these come from - except I like to look at rocks, which we have a lot of in Southern California.
