New Painting: “Sun in Trees 1”

May 6, 2010 at 3:34 pm

This is the first in a new series of paintings I’m planning. I’m calling the series Sun in Trees. It’s similar to my November Sun series I ended a while ago, only now the paintings will be a little more realistic. They’ll all be based on photos rather than coming entirely from my imagination. But they’ll still have that “swirling sun” effect that so many people enjoyed in the old series.

"Sun in Trees 1" by Barbara J Carter, 10x8", acrylic on canvas

It’s a whole new challenge to create these paintings from photographs. But I think this first painting shows promise.

Here it is framed:

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.
