"Birds of a Feather" Finalist in The Artist's Magazine's Annual Competition
The winners have already been chosen -- so I won't be getting top honors this year -- but it is an honor to be chosen as a finalist in this competition that draws over 10,000 entries each year.
Amidst my house move (packers/movers arrive next week), my only slightly facetious next post on the "Pleasures of Packing" is rattling around in my head. Bet you can't wait.
By the way, I updated/changed info on my single-day workshops held now on August 14, 15, 16, 22, and 23. See my web site: www.jillbanks.com classes page, for more info. I also added supply list info for that and my still life workshop (August 3-5). I hope you sign up!

Reception: Sunday, July 25, 2-5pm. You can view images of the show on my web site. Don't just view that page, though. Take a look through my gallery pages for my Places, Market, Portrait, Still Life and Drawing galleries.
