"Made In the Shade" Plein Air Painting in Vienna

"Made in the Shade," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©Jill Banks 2013
This afternoon I headed to Vienna VA to "paint the town" -- as a possible entry for an exhibit/competition sponsored by the Vienna Arts Society. Artists have a week to set up and paint in and around the town -- and can turn in up to two paintings of Vienna, preferably done en plein air, on Monday, September 30.

Check out more info on the Vienna Arts Society web site:

The umbrella in the corner was shading my direct into the sun view. Couldn't resist painting it in...

Fortunately, the owner of the car parked in front of the Washington & Old Dominion railcar stayed in place as long as I did. Phew.

I hope to get outside, enjoying the day painting, tomorrow and the next. It's too pretty out to miss. So, look for more. Not sure about the destination ... but let's say someplace.
