Something Else Instead

"Old Wall, Italy," oil, 12"h x 16"w, ©Jill Banks 2014
Despite having gone to Open Life at the McLean Community Center today (one of my rare appearances this year), my blog post is going to reveal one of my paintings from the August Paint With Me in Italy workshop instead.  (The painting from today might be a wiper ... as in, returning to a blank canvas. Oh well. It happens.)

This was a familiar scene from the B&B that many of us stayed at in Treiso in the wine region of Italy. (Planning for the 2015 workshop is in progress.) I painted it there ... put did some touch-ups, needed or not, last week in the studio. I'll add it to my web site momentarily where you can find it in the Places Gallery under works.
