"Pomegranates" Continued

"Pomegranates," oil, 10"h x 8"w, copyright Jill Banks 2012
This weekend hasn't gone exactly as planned. Perhaps that's because my little toe was involved with a major collision with our family room coffee table ... the result of which led me to doing more sitting than standing the last couple of days. My goal was to finish some (many) paintings. I did finish "Pomegranates" yesterday during open hours at the Atelier, and the next hour or two will find me back at the easel doing something.

Late afternoon, I picked back up my three paintings from the Treasury of Art show in Vienna, Virginia. No one purchased them, but they gained some admirers. All three of those ("Tranquility," "London Times" and "Not Picasso") drew plenty of positive reviews. They were good choices -- thanks to some help from a friend. (Thanks, Terri!)
