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.

Windy Desert Two

5x7 watercolor with pastel on paper. I love the simplicity of this technique. Watercolor in the background with areas not painted and then highlighted with pastel. This sketchy style is good for Western or desert scenes. Let me know what you think!
