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.

Q and A with Carol:

Hi Carol! So what's up with these new butterfly paintings? I love them! Are you going to do them on canvas too?

Thank you for your comments. I was in the garden working and the idea came to me to do butterflies and other insects - and possibly some birds. I did some realistic drawings in colored pencil of butterflies years ago,  and thought they would be fun in an abstract painting. Once again, I usually don't work on canvas. I prefer paper. I find it to best for my mixed media approach. Plus, I love watercolor and acrylic used as a water medium.
