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!

Chartreuse in the City Five

10x14 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. I love these colors.  I have the opportunity to do paintings with ONLY the primary colors of red, yellow and blue; but, I find that I enjoy working with complimentary or secondary colors along with the primaries. It's just personal taste.  It's fun to play around with a color wheel and look at the different combinations.
