"Colors on King Street" Commission Delivered Today

"Colors on King Street," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2016 Jill Banks
Commissions aren't always portraits and "Colors on King Street" is a case in point. The painting was commissioned by a couple who first collected my work last year at the Alexandria King Street Art Festival and during that first purchase we discussed this painting to be.

They picked it up tonight in time to have it help deck their house for Thanksgiving and the holidays.

Happy folks!

My studio in Great Falls (at the Artists' Atelier, 756 Walker Road, Great Falls, VA) is looking bare right now ... but my home is overflowing with artwork. Must be a sign of something. But it will look great again -- just in time for the last First Friday Art Walk in the Village of the year, December 2, 6 to 9pm. Then, the studio will be open for holiday art shopping on Saturday, December 3, 10am to 5pm and Sunday, December 4, noon to 5pm. It's time for holiday shopping ... what will you treat yourself and your loved ones with this year? I'd be VERY glad to help.

Thanks for reading!
