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.

English Cottage One

Colored pencil on paper. I have done several cottage cards. Hopefully, I will get around to printing note cards! I enjoyed watching the wedding of William and Kate and thought I would post an English card. I have been to England on two occasions - when I was 11 and then again in 1994.  The first time, my parents took us to church at Westminster Abbey. We are Episcopalians (which is also Anglican or the Church of England ) so it was very meaningful to us to attend a service there. I am still mesmerized by the history and beauty of the Abbey. I also visited Canterbury Cathedral in 1994 and that was a moving experience for me, too.
