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!

Just Started

Morning Glory (WIP)
by Carol Adamec
Original Oil, alkyd on gessoed panel
5" x 8"

I was hoping to have the Morning Daffodils painting completely finished by today. However, there were still some reworks and details to do, and then painting was too wet to put on the scanner. So, look forward to seeing the "all done" version on Thursday.

Although I woke up on Easter Sunday to cold weather and fresh snow on the mountains, I'm ready for Spring! So I started another small flower painting of a morning glory, close up. I've blocked in the basic shapes with flat colors. You can still see the burnt sienna underpainting (the reddish brown color) peeking through here and there. I'll be working on this new piece this week and will post its progress, too.

Thanks for taking a look today. See you Thursday.
