"Sewing Room" Continued

"Sewing Room" work in progress (almost done), oil, 16"h x 20"w, ©Jill Banks 2015
Inspired by today's class full of hard-working Still Life students...  and some increasingly drooping tulips. Sometimes subject's dictate the day's work.

Lots of other paintings waiting to jump on the easel.

"Apple Singer," the predecessor of "Sewing Room."  Private collection.
This is a different model, but I've painted antique sewing machine before.  One inspiring model leads to another. My first painting of a sewing machine was "Apple Singer," a piece that now hangs along with a wonderful collection and many more of my works. Happy that it found it a good home!
