Painting Home

"Baby, It's Cold Outside," oil, 24"h x 18"w,©Jill Banks 2015.
For each new solo exhibit on the horizon, I seem to have an endless list of paintings-to-be that are added to my inclusion wish list. In "Warm Observations: People and Places," now playing (up) at ArtSpace Herndon, 750 Center Street, Herndon, VA ... I wanted to show "home" -- all the new scenes that surround me since Randy and I moved to our townhome in Fairfax last summer.

So it didn't make it into that exhibit, but sooner or later, I do get around to turning those visions in my head a reality. Here's my second favorite spot in our house (the studio still wins #1) -- the perfect table for Randy and me ... with snow lining the trees and grass outside.

Preview "Warm Observations" Online Here. Scenes from last Saturday's reception are repeated  here. They weren't ready in time for the last post to go out. Enjoy!
