- 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.

This is a 9x12 oil pastel. No soft pastels in this piece! I used to work with oil pastels a lot. I would mainly blend them, but now I prefer to use them in this manner - like crayons! They are not as bright or brilliant as soft pastels, in my opinion; but, they are rich and creamy, so I guess they have their own qualities that are appealing.
