Happy Fourth of July from Telluride!

"Heart of Telluride," oil, 16"h x 20"w, ©Jill Banks 2015. A painting of the (former) bank Butch Cassidy looted.
I realize that most of you will be reading this after the fireworks ... but hopefully you enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July celebrating this great country of ours.

My corner in Telluride. Nice shade and people, a little dark for perfect painting viewing.
I'm currently heading into town to set up my "booth" for the art sale component of Telluride Plein Air for the second day in a row. Approximately 20,000 people are headed there as well for the parade. Hard to imagine what that will look like in this small town.

Got to rush ... but here are a few images that didn't make it onto the blog sooner. There are more for another post.

Happy 4th!!!!

"Popular Alley," oil, 8"h x 10"w, ©Jill Banks 2015 was my Quick Draw painting purchased by the artist captured in the scene. That was nice!
Thanks for reading!
