Gardendale, AL


In the words of Wes Carter:
I am a painter focusing primarily on landscapes. Many of my paintings are based on my experiences and impressions of places I’ve been. Other paintings are created completely from my imagination. I constantly seek to improve my skills as a plein air painter. In my paintings I hope to convey the sense of awe and wonder that the natural world inspires in me. For me, a painting is successful when it has an implied sense of narrative, when the viewer feels that they are glimpsing only a small part of a larger story that they will never completely comprehend. My preferred painting mediums are Oil, Watercolor and Gouache. I paint primarily on masonite board and occasionally on canvas.
