About The Artist

My photo
Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
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!

Featured on ETSY....

Carol Adamec
Moonlight & Datura

Available as a signed & numbered
Open Edition Art Print at
I featured this painting awhile back on May 23 ("Art & Ideas" blog) and mentioned that a signed Art Print of it could be viewed/purchased through my ETSY shop.

I am pleased to report that "Moonlight & Datura" was selected by another ETSY member for a showcase, currently on display until 3:26am, Saturday, October 18. Just click this link:
http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=15333 and you'll see a thumbnail of "Moonlight & Datura" on the top row, second from the left. If you then click the thumbnail, you'll be taken to my shop: CarolAdamec.ETSY.com.

You can also view
Lisa Rivas's "e-Stamps" in her ETSY shop, FlyingColors. (Lisa was featured on this blog July 30.)

For those of you who have not yet visited ETSY, you might like to check out the site. It offers thousands items—all handmade—by artists, craftsmen, and do-it-yourselfers. It's one of my favorite sites to visit when looking for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind gift item or artwork. And the price range is incredibly diverse...and very reasonable. You might find that ETSY is a great source for your holiday shoppping...or something special for yourself.

Have a really great weekend.
See you Monday!
