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.

Orange Corner, mixed media painting by Carol Engles


17 x 23 mixed media painting on paper. This is bright orange red. My husband thought it was too bright - but orange isn't his favorite color. I did this orange painting because I wanted to contrast orange with green and yellow and add pink as a surprise. It is very easy to get into a color "rut" and not try new color combinations. I am really pleased with both the colors and the composition in this. Hope you like it!

Thanks Elizabeth, Fred and Cindy! Wow! Your comments mean a lot to me! I took a risk by going to the "orange side" and I am so glad you like this piece!
