Shortly after arriving on Wednesday night to Belleville, Illinois (near St. Louis), I set up to paint the fountain in the middle of the town square ... the place that is now transformed with artist tents for this weekend's Art on the Square event.
I'm heading to my tent in just a minute to get it ready for tonight's (Friday, May 13 -- oh, I just realized that) opening. "Belleville Fountain" will be up and hanging there -- hoping to be snatched up by a patron this weekend.
Check back to yesterday's blog post at jillbanks.blogspot.com where all four portraits from my stint as Artist in Residence are now up.
