Wet NYC Street Painting in Progress

You should see my studio.

I've been on a honing my art tools kick for the past week ... because it was past time as in: dirty brushes, paints not where I expected them, wanting to take care of some untended to tasks.

Lots of discoveries were made this week.  Paints are categorized by colors spread out all over the studio floor. It looks like an art supply store in there. Three new color charts were made (I'll tell you about that tomorrow). Some paintings were finished.

And this one, "Don't Walk," was started.

I'm not sure if the title will stay. Suggestions welcome. A few of the rainy scenes that have preceded this one (all sold), included "Five Umbrellas," "Rainy Day in NYC" (shown below right) and "New York State of Mind." Take a look at those on my website, click on Works and go to the Places collection. And, I may add them here on the post but if you get it via email (as a subscriber), you'll have to go to my blog: jillbanks.blogspot.com.

Thanks for visiting.
