"Hudson River Morn" Finally Finished

"Hudson River Morn" is the "papa bear" version of a painting created looking out the floor-to-ceiling window of my NYC hotel room March 2012.  It was in what I thought to be almost-finished state several times but given the marathon painting work done today -- it seems I thought wrong.

Last year, I took advantage of the fantastic views in two directions from that glass shower. I painted in there for three days -- sunrise to sunset.  The wee morning hours were spent enjoying the view of the Hudson with the city awakening.  In the afternoon, I turned 90º and painted "Sunset in NYC" (a favorite purchased last year).

"Hudson River Morn" is one more painting to be included in my "Serendipity" exhibit. See info below and on my web site: www.JillBanks.com (under events). I've started to build a preview of work that most likely be in that exhibit. Go to the web site, click on works and then the Serendipity exhibit. More to come.
