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.

Dandelion Field

19x23 acrylic with pastel on paper. Something more Summer like! I had this vision in my head of dandelions, I don't know why! So, here's what I did! So much fun to do whimsical pieces. I usually don't look at anything specific when I do these. I get my best ideas early in the morning and then I try to get to work on them as soon as I can. I very seldom work late in the day on the art itself. I guess I am too tired from working with horses.

Thanks Sally! I just sold this piece. It is one of my favorites, too. And our stallion is nice boy ... very gentle.
