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.

Tropical Expressions Five

16 x 22 mixed media on paper. This piece has oil pastel and watercolor along with some other drawing media. I used a resist technique as well. My husband likes it when I do tropical theme pieces. I am not sure what I am thinking of, other than lots of blue and green. I guess when you really look at it you can see palms, vines and a building in the background. Of course, this could be anything.

I'm a little fond of tropical subjects myself. Love this, particularly the use of mixed media.
