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!

August Flowers One, an abstract oil pastel on paper.

I tried to post this painting yesterday to no avail. Today I was able to do so, but it is still quirky. I had fun doing this "squiggly" piece. The trick with oil pastel, as I mentioned before, is that you can't layer them as easily as soft pastels. You have to be careful not to "muddy them up". Thankfully, I was able to keep this light and airy. Hope you like it!
