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!

Morning Glorious Progress Report

Morning Glorious (WIP)
by Carol Adamec
Original: Oil, alkyd on gessoed panel
6" x 8"

Well, I didn't go to Santa Fe this weekend. Fortunately, the show at the O'Keeffe Museum runs into May; so I intend to see the exhibit in a couple of weeks.

However, I did work in the studio on my new flower painting, Morning Glorious. It's still "rough." Although I want the blue of the morning glory to "sing" right now it's screeching! The bloom also feels very dense, rather than fragile and translucent. Obviously, I have my work cut out for me.

Many thanks to those of you who commented on Morning Daffodils, too. I sincerely appreciate that you took the time to give me your opinion and response.

Thanks for taking a look today. See you Thursday.
