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.

San Diego City Wires Two

5 x 7 watercolor, pastel and charcoal on paper. Fun and sketchy! Just the way I like it!

Very nice! Do you mind if I ask if you apply each medium in a certain order, or is it random?

Thank you so much! I usually paint the background first and then add the pastel and charcoal. Sometimes, in these sketchy pieces, I draw it first and then add the watercolor. I do these very fast so they keep the sketchy look.
