Happy New Year ... First Painting of 2015

"Twinkle, Twinkle," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©Jill Banks 2014
Husband Randy was reading a book on the Kindle early evening at just the right time to be recruited to become the subject of a painting.

I'm just recovering from the flu which stole at least five days of painting time. My "to do" list to get ready to hang my "Warm Observations: People and Places" show (on January 12 at ArtSpace Herndon) is getting longer and longer. Fortunately, time in the studio is on that list!

Since it's time to post ... I guess this is it. Expect another from me tomorrow with info on the Great Falls School of Art Student Exhibition, what's hanging in my studio at the Atelier, maybe another painting ... and more.

My upcoming classes are both full. You may still join the wait list ... just in case.
