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!

Aubergine Two, abstract landscape painting by Carol Engles

5 x 7 water media and pastel on paper. I am currently working on a larger (17x23) version of this. I love the colors in these "Aubergine" pieces. Aubergine is French for eggplant. This isn't quite as grapish in color as eggplant, but I love the title anyway. HA! I hope to have the larger piece done in a couple days! So stay tuned! Contact me if you're interested.

Carol, just stumbled upon your blog. Your abstracts are very appealing, energetic; exciting. I like the use of mixed media; and find this piece especially inviting with the proportion of warms to cools.

Thanks Jody! I try really hard to give my abstracts energy! Even when I am tired. HA! I am going to check your blog as well.
