About Me

My photo
Murrieta, CA, United States
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.

Purple Corner Two

10 x 14 watercolor and pastel on paper. This is the 2nd piece of a series. I think they would look cool grouped together. People ask me why I don't work on canvas so they wouldn't have to buy a mat and frame. Well, I keep my prices reasonable and these works can be framed with a ready-to-made frames, so they are economical. Pastel and watercolor are striking under glass -  they come alive. At the Musee D'Orsay in Paris,  Degas and other pastel artists' works are displayed framed under glass and they are still vibrant and stunning after all these years.

Elizabeth had commented that this work looked like an abstract version of your Spanish Stallion. I just had to agree. We love your use of color.... Don
