More Little Ones ... From Mystic and a Beanie Baby

Quick post ... since I only have a few minutes.

"Our Lady of St. Patrick's," oil, 6"h x 6"w, ©2015 Jill Banks. Purchased by a great couple we'd met in Virginia Beach. It was a surprise to see them at Mystic!

"Gazing at Mystic," oil, 6"h x 6"w, ©2015 Jill Banks. Second piece (of three) painted and purchased in Mystic. The third one was never photographed ... but depicted Seaport Marine and was painted from this same spot.

"BB Giraffe," oil, 6"h x 6"w, ©2015 Jill Banks. That trip to the zoo with my daughter, Sarah, inspired me to paint some Beanie Baby animals today.  That, and the fact that yesterday's trip to Kidwell Farm -- where I often find great subjects to paint -- greeted me with an awful lot of empty or near empty fields. Where did everyone go?

Thanks for reading!
