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 Magic of Paint

Lit Up Lily
by Carol Adamec
Original painting
Oil, alkyd on panel

6" x 8"

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was in the mood for spring. So here's my first finished flower painting for May. Thanks to the magic of oil paint, last week's Rorschach is this week's lily.... enjoy!

Thanks for taking a look today. Please leave a comment if you would like.

See you Thursday.

I like your decision to have the subject (the flower) touch all four edges of the painting. Very nice. This would really brighten up a room!
