New dot painting: “Mandala”

My latest painting, “Mandala.”

"Mandala" painting by Barbara J Carter

"Mandala" painting by Barbara J Carter, 2010, 10x10 inches, acrylic on canvas

This was a really fun painting to make. I didn’t have any set idea about it when I started, other than it being a mandala. I just began in the center and worked my way out. I’m very pleased with the results.

This points me in yet another new direction to be explored. Because apparently the neo-Pointillist landscapes, the “Sun in Trees” series, the geometric dot paintings, the big dot paintings and the little-bitty dot paintings aren’t enough projects for me right now. Ahem.

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).
