Going Geometric: “Dots 6” painting

March 23, 2009 at 12:29 pm 2 comments

I’m really excited about this direction for my little abstract dot paintings:

Geometry! The dots form one grid, the background stripes another. This is definitely a direction I’m interested in pursuing further. It dovetails nicely with the ideas I’ve been thinking about recently. So, you can expect to see more geometry!


This painting is available for $30 plus postage (and sales tax in California). First Class postage in the U.S. is $1.50. It is painted on a canvas panel, a thin board that will fit into a normal 5×7″ photo frame. Click on the “Buy Now” button to purchase with a credit card. No PayPal account needed.

    Hi Barbara,
    My wife and I absolutely love “Dots 6”. We have a production company that makes “meaningful” documentaries and we’re in the process of designing our website. We would love perhaps to license your work for possible use in our design. Would you be open to that? I’m happy to provide more details of our company and design ideas.

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.
