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.

San Diego Bay One

5 x 7 mixed media on paper. This is a study for a larger piece. I decided to do something with a lot of blue. It is an abstraction of water, decks/docks and nautical symbols. Tell me what you think or see! I look forward to your comments!

I Love this painting! The colors, shapes, composition...love it all! Great job on capturing the different structures along the water. Love the bits of red that break it up as well. Look forward to seeing the larger version!

I love the colors! It definitely has a nautical feel to it and I can see boats and blue sails! Great work!

Thanks Theresa! I hope I can capture the same "nautical" feel in the larger piece!
