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!

Stuck on Cactus

"Bright Light"
by Carol Adamec
Original, Watercolor
7.5" x 9" • $275
Contact Artist to purchase.

I've been going through art that I've had boxed up—in some cases for the past six years! I came across this watercolor of some cactus that I painted several years ago. Since I don't work in watercolor very often, this is a rare piece indeed! I still like the brightness of the light that I was lucky to capture.

I have a new cactus painting in the works, that will be completed in oil, that I'll share with you when it's done.

I hope your week is going well. See you Friday.
