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.

Stretch Duel

10x14 watercolor with pastel on paper. This piece has lots of color - and lots of pastel! I wanted it to have a   sketchy look and hopefully show the movement and speed of Thoroughbreds. Hope you like it!

Great energy and movement in this piece! I like the colors, too.

Thanks Theresa! This one was hard to do. I had trouble keeping the tote board in the background abstract and hopefully not to distract from the horses!
