Day in Alexandria

Quick post. No time ... but I will be putting up a more substantial entry tomorrow. Check back at jillbanks.blogspot.com ... okay?

Two paintings.

Today's was painted in a park sort of near the Art League in Alexandria, VA. It was good for my soul as passersbys ... loved it. Commented. Loved my being there.

The photo is pretty awful ... but I hope you get the gist.

The Hamptons
I created two but one is framed and buried in the van that is still packed to head up to Wickford, Rhode Island for this weekend's upcoming show. The photo for this is worse than that for "Shoreline." Apologies. I am either painting or in the dark.

I met and talked to the folks who are ... sort of ... in my painting. They were enjoying ice cream before gaining more company ... before chatting with me. If I'm painting, I'm happy.
