Painting "Rainy Day Market" on a Rainy Day
Today I worked on the flowers and more on the baskets and fruit. This is one of those paintings that I could keep painting on indefinitely... but I won't. These market paintings ("Limoni", "Rialto Market" and "Rainy Day Market") are a real joy for me. There's something so generous, abundant and hopeful about them. It's my personal antidote for the current economy and difficult times.
See more of my still lifes, market and street scenes in the gallery section of my web site: www.jillbanks.com and right here, on my blog.
This one's not quite done, but almost.
