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!

Steeplechaser, One


10x14 watercolor with pastel and ink on paper. This is another equine abstract that I had planned for awhile. I am enjoying portraying horses in sport and motion. That's the main thing I am trying to achieve. I also want to do them in a fun, colorful style. I also am fascinated with the simplicity of charcoal , so I have been doing horses in that medium as well. This is very bright and, excuse the pun, "jumps" off the paper!
