About The Artist

Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Details, Details!

Over the past couple of months, I have been working up a larger painting called "The Kitchen Window." The painting measures 22" x 28", oil on stretched canvas. (When it's completed, I'll show it to you on this blog.)

Today's painting, measuring 10" x 8", is a detail from the larger painting, which, I think, it works as a complete visual statement on its own.

In particular, I'm happy with the the light moving across the various objects—the dishes, the rack, the sink, the counter, and the back of the chair—all bathed in a mellow pinkish glow.

Thanks for taking a moment to read this post and see today's painting. See you Friday!

I've considered painting the kitchen sink many times.
This piece of yours is inspiring me, maybe I will...
Very nice Carol, hugs to you:)
