"Artemis" Wins Honorable Mention

"Artemis," oil, 11"h x 14"w, ©Jill Banks 2013
"Artemis" was accepted by juror Jerry Coulter for this month's membership exhibit at the Art League. 496 pieces were entered and 81 were accepted. The exhibit runs until August 5.

I did love painting this piece. "Artemis" was painted during a particularly inspired open life session held at the McLean Community Center. The whole set up was great but the forest-like crown drew me to concentrating on the portrait.

Coulter also awarded it an Honorable Mention.

The opening reception for this exhibit is next Thursday, July 11 from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. I'm

planning to be there. (At least, so far.)

"Peony and Rose," oil, 10"h x 8"w is also on view at the Art League this month.

Have a very Happy 4th of July.
