Home Studio Open House ... Continued

"Geraniums," oil, 8"h x 5.5"w, ©2014 Jill Banks. Painted plein air in La Morra, Italy -- as I was "toning" my painting muscles in this beautiful spot before students arrived for my Paint with Me in Italy workshop. "Geraniums" has gone to just the right owner -- someone who appreciated them there in La Morra.

What Was Chosen, Part II

See yesterday's post for photos of four of the paintings off to new homes following Sunday's Home Studio Open House.

Today, Randy and I had the pleasure of delivering and hanging "Mercato" -- with the chance to see it in its new abode.  I love that!

My promise of photos of my home hung with artwork is delayed at least until later tonight. (Check back later at jillbanks.blogspot.com -- since I have no way of changing the email once it's been sent.)
