Carol Carter @GCWS June Meeting
Today I was a guest of Rhonda Carpenter at the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society's June meeting to listen to Carol Carter talk about her body of work.
Carol generously showed us paintings from her swimming, self portraits, floral, Florida, insect and France themes and gave wonderful marketing tips.
Carol had an opening called "Bubbles" recently in St. Louis where she is from. The one women show is at ARCH Framing & Design, Inc. Check it out if you are in the area. Carol is having a 3 day workshop at her studio in St. Louis June 20-22, 2014. Click here for information.
Carol also showed us the Norwegian magazine that her insect series is featured in. They had the article in Norwegian and in English. Very cool to read. Carol is on Facebook and explained how social media helps artist to get their work out to a potential customer.
After Carol's informative talk, she provided a few items from her "Bubbles" show. I bought a scarf with her fishes on it as did a few of the GCWS members. I also received a charm with a blue fish and some bubbles from Carol. (Thank you so much Carol)
If you have not seen Carol's colorful vibrant paintings, I invite you to check her work out by clicking the highlighted words in this post.
I have enjoyed getting to know Carol over the years on FB, her blog and in person. She is genuine, sweet and frank in what she has to say. I look forward to many talks with her in the future.
