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.

Winter Marsh Two

8 x 10 watercolor with pastel and charcoal on paper. I thought I would do another "winter" scene. We have actually had a bit of winter here. Last week we had very cold temperatures for us including frost at my home and snow at only 2,000 feet or so. Some of the mountains nearby got 4 feet of snow during the last storm. This piece is "wintery" I think.  I added the blue to give it an icy feel.

Thanks Don and Elizabeth! You are both too kind. You know how much I enjoy your abstracts. As I have said before, Elizabeth, you are a TRUE abstract expressionist. Not many artists are!!!
