Welcome to my blog!
Of course, I already have a regular web site, www.barbarajcarter.com, where you can see all my paintings (well, most of them anyway!), find out where my next show will be, and read up on how I got into this art stuff.
This blog, now, this is different. Here I can be a bit more chatty, kind of like the conversations I have with visitors at my shows.
Indeed, the questions I get at my shows provide most of the ideas for my future blog entries.
For example, I will discuss my painting style and how it began. I’ll talk about the artists who’ve inspired me. I’ll explain my methods. I’ll post images of paintings in progress to show how my work evolves. I’ll talk about acrylic paint and its unique properties.
For a long time I’ve wanted to write about the care and feeding of acrylic paintings. Like whether they should be varnished, and the relative merits of displaying them framed versus “naked”.
This is going to be fun! See you around my blog!
