"Daily Special" Wins Best in Show

"Daily Special," oil, 24"h x 18"w, ©2016 Jill Banks wins Best in Show


"Daily Special" was selected by juror/artist Brienne Brown as the Best in Show winner of the September 2016 BoldBrush Painting Competition, a monthly online contest. See all the winning entries for the September competition here:

In that same contest, my painting "Reverence" was voted as a FAV15 -- the Fine Art Views staff's favorite top 15% of the month's entries.

That Best in Show was out of a whopping 1,440 entries. Can you imagine selecting the winning entries and finalists out of that many images? To see all the entries, click here.

The award comes with a $1000 cash prize and an upcoming feature article in Informed Collector, a free online newsletter focused on delivering relevant content/advice for art collectors.

"Daily Special" is currently available for purchase.
