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!

Brown Canyon One

5 x 7 watercolor with pastel on paper. I like the color combination in this piece. I think it would make an especially nice large work. I think I may do several with this combination. Neutrals can be powerful with an addition of contrast in light and dark and then perhaps the addition of a bright color or two. That's what I tried to do here.
