About The Artist

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!

A Taste of Albuquerque: Balloon Fiesta!


Early Morning Ascent
Photo by Carol Adamec

This is an exciting week in town, since the annual Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta started early Saturday morning and continues through next weekend.

Where I am staying is a stone's throw from Balloon Fiesta Park. As I was driving to the studio, these three balloonists were drifting over our neighborhood in the morning light. I pulled over and took a quick photo to share a taste of Albuquerque with you. Enjoy!

Hope your Monday morning is a good one. See you Wednesday.
