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!

The Learning Tree

Morning Courtyard
by Carol Adamec
8" x 8" Oil on canvasboard
In Progress

This painting has been "in progress" for several weeks now, going through several color and composition revisions. I even lopped off 2 inches of the original 8" x 10" panel to change the format. (I used the panel fragment to paint "Fingernail Moon" posted on October 27.)

For sure, I have learned a lot painting this Russia olive tree in my friend's patio area. I'm just not sure the lesson is over!

Thanks for taking a moment to visit my blogsite. Have a good weekend and I'll see you Monday.
