|"Papaya and Friends," 16"h x 20"w, oil by Jill Banks: on exhibit in Reston|
|"Tranquility" won Best in Show, ArtReston! 2012|
(Husband) Randy delivered two paintings for receiving for ArtReston, the regional annual open art exhibition sponsored by the League of Reston Artists, this morning. The show was juried (selection and awards) by Paula Wachsstock ... and my entry "Tranquility" won Best in Show. The exhibit runs through October 31, 2012 at the JoAnn Rose Gallery, Lake Anne Reston Community Center, 1609-A Washington Plaza, Reston, VA. My second entry, "Papaya and Friends" was also juried into the exhibit. This is my second time winning Best in Show at ArtReston.
After class today, I delivered "Classical Painting Atelier" to its new owner. That, in and of itself, is pretty great. Since this is the fifth of my paintings in her collection, I wandered around and saw four other favorites of mine hanging on the walls around the house. It's fun to visit them, and her, and to see how perfectly those pieces fit into their new home. Then, tonight received a wonderful email -- from "Classical Painting Atelier's" new owner -- about how happy she is to add it to the collection. And, I'm just as happy that that's where it will be. Pretty GREAT feeling.
