New Dot Paintings: “Dots 4” and “Dots 5”

March 22, 2009 at 9:06 pm

Catching up with the little bitty dot paintings:

"Dots 4" by Barbara J Carter, 5x7", acrylic on canvas panel, 2009

"Dots 4" by Barbara J Carter, 5x7", acrylic on canvas panel, 2009

"Dots 5" by Barbara J Carter, 5x7", acrylic on canvas panel, 2009

"Dots 5" by Barbara J Carter, 5x7", acrylic on canvas panel, 2009

I’m particularly pleased that some of the background detail shows up in “Dots 5”. It’s almost completely obscured in “Dots 4”, but you can just barely make it out if you look closely.

These little paintings are fun little works of art in their own right, but they’re also studies and experiments leading up to larger paintings. With these little bitty paintings I can work out what colors I like, how well the background details show up, things like that. So there will be more to come.

Each of these paintings is available for $45 plus postage (and sales tax in California).

Sorry, “Dots 4” and “Dots 5” are both sold. You can see my other little dot paintings here, or you can see all of my available art here.

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.
