Posts filed under ‘Postcards’


A couple times a year I mail postcards to announce an upcoming art show or group of shows I’m doing.

(I say a “couple” because it’s been exactly two per year for several years now. But maybe some year I’ll do three. I’m leaving myself some wriggle room here. Anyway, it’s not much mail. Very non-spammy.)

You are totally missing out if you’re not getting my postcards. They’re free to you, and each features a new painting in full glorious glossy color. Some people frame them and hang them up. I think that’s great! Heck, after a few years you’ll have a nice little grouping for that odd empty corner where nothing else fits.

If you’re not getting my postcards, you should get in on the action. What’s to lose?

Sign up here to get both postcards and emails (also very infrequent and non-spammy), or email me directly if you only want the postcards. My email address is here.

Barbara J Carter's 2013 Kings Mountain postcard

My last postcard, shown here, announced my participation in the 2013 Kings Mountain Art Fair in northern California. Doesn’t that look nice?

Postcards for everyone

About once a year I send out a postcard to everyone on my mailing list. Everyone! All over the world!

This could also be you.

I sent out my 2011 mailing last week:

Barbara J Carter's postcards ready to be mailed

If you didn’t get a postcard from me, I don’t have your address. Maybe you gave it to me but I typed it in wrong. Maybe you moved. Or maybe (gasp!) you never gave it to me.

No matter, it’s easily fixed. Drop me an email ( Or go here and fill in all the stuff. Easy.

New Painting: “Satwiwa 2”

Satwiwa 2, by Barbara J Carter, 24x36", acrylic on canvas

The complex undulations of the hills and meadows at Satwiwa caught my eye. (I’ve blogged about Satwiwa before, here.) It seemed the intriguing shape of the land was just begging to be captured in a painting. So I did, and this painting, Satwiwa 2, is the result.

I was so pleased with this painting that I chose it for my second postcard mailing of the year. This is the first year I’m sending out multiple postcards. Previously my habit was at most a single postcard mailing in any given year. But that’s just not enough. So this is The Year of Many Postcards! (Well, 3 or 4 anyway.)

You can receive my postcards too! Just sign up for my mailing list here.

Oh, and of course the painting itself is available for sale. Click here for that information.

Open Studio Postcard 2008

Open Studio Postcard 2008

If you received one of these postcards from me, congratulations! You’re on my mailing list, and I have your correct mailing address.

If you didn’t receive a postcard, either you never gave me your address, or you moved, or I typed it in wrong. In any case, it means I don’t have your correct address. Horrors!

Fear not! This is an easy problem to remedy. Just send me an email ( or pop over to my Contact web page and type your address into the handy form there. Then you’ll be on my mailing list for sure, and you won’t miss any future mailings.

I don’t send out a lot of material by postal mail. It’s time consuming and costly. But once in a while (maybe once or twice a year) I do send out postcards. They’re very nice postcards. You’ll like them. They always show one of my newest paintings, and look better than the images online. (Of course the actual paintings themselves look even better in person than in any photograph.) So, join my mailing list and see for yourself!

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.
