"Hare's Apples" Still Life Demo

"Hare's Apples," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2016 Jill Banks
Yesterday's Still Life Plus class started with a demo ... and offered another case of a rabbit appearance. See more of my still life paintings on my web site:

The photo isn't great. After a very full day of teaching or getting ready for yesterday's class, I'm moving at a tortoise's pace at the moment. (Kind of like being stuck in a fairy tale?) But ... I'll be ready for the start of plein air class tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to a Fall full of adventure.

This weekend I'll be at the Armonk 55th Annual Outdoor Art Show in Armonk, NY.  I hope to see you there.  Any encouragement you could give to others to attend would be GREATLY appreciated. It's a wonderful show I had the privilege of being a part of two years ago and in each new venue, it takes awhile to build up a fan base. You can help!  Armonk is near Greenwich CT -- pulling collectors from Connecticut, New Jersey and New York.
