Late Afternoon at "Open Life"

"Open Life" work in progress, oil, 20"h x 16"w, ©2016 Jill Banks
Attending an orientation meeting for the MPAartfest in McLean VA today reminded me that it's a Saturday and -- lo and behold --I am free for the long pose open life.


It's a work in progress because I'd like to work on some of the background elements and floor. No model needed for those.

Fun day. First Friday was great. You never know in a summer month in what sometimes seems like a ghost town. Thanks so much to all of you who visited! Please come again.
