Halfway through the blitz

May 6, 2008 at 5:41 pm

I am now halfway through my 4-show blitz – four shows in a row. (You can see my current show schedule here.) I seem to be surviving better than I anticipated, but it’s definitely hard work.

Here I am at last weekend’s show in Calabasas, CA:

Barbara J Carter\'s art fair booth at the 2008 Calabasas Fine Arts Festival

The Calabasas show went quite well. The weather was perfect! Lots of people stopped by and commented on my work, which is always fun for me. I love that I get to interact with so many people from all different walks of life. The one common denominator is that they all like my work! After all, anyone who doesn’t like it will wander off and look at something else they like better.

The various reactions people have to my work, whether it’s “wow” or “that’s different,” help me recharge my batteries to get back to the studio and paint more.

Oh yes, some people also purchased my paintings. That is truly the ultimate compliment, and I am deeply grateful to each one of them. Their purchases make it possible for me to keep doing this.

See you at my next two shows!

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
