Painting Like Crazy in Wayne, PA

"Red Barn" (Garrett Mill Farm), oil, 16"h x 20"w, ©Jill Banks 2015 -- poor photo, great day!
I'm about to embark on official day 4 of Wayne Plein Air ... having handed in five paintings last night with more to come tonight and during the in town paint tomorrow.

There's no time to do anything but paint and sleep but here's one view -- a poor photo of it yet still a favorite day and work of the week so far.

I did get accepted for the Alexandria King Street Art Festival being held September 20&21 in Alexandria, VA. Yay!!! It's quite a line-up of great events to HOPEFULLY see you at!

Much more to come ... I just don't know when.

Off to paint.

Call for Artists
