More Lemons and First Friday at the Atelier
Today was the first day of my Great Falls Still Life class, taught through the Great Falls School of Art ... and I started this painting as a pretty quick demo. After class ended, I kept on painting ... and here it is.
"Yellow and Blue", oil on Senso linen, 14" x 11", copyright Jill Banks 2009.
Also, this coming Friday (February 6) is First Friday at the Artists' Atelier, the studio I share with now 14 other artists. We are welcoming two new artist members: Walt Lawrence and Jenna Klimchak. Join us from 7-9 pm to enjoy the art and sip some wine or sparkling water ... or both! Valentine's Day would be even sweeter with a gift of art. I have a miniature painting of a Hershey's Kiss and may even paint some sweethearts candies for the occasion. We shall see. The address is 1144 Walker Road, Suite G, Great Falls, VA 22066. Our regular open hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays, noon to 4pm plus the First Friday night of every month. Come visit, often!
