"Maya and Dallas" Portrait Painting
"Maya and Dallas," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2016 Jill Banks

"Maya and Dallas" depicts my grandniece Maya with her first horse -- and happily combines two favorite subjects. Fun to paint and fun to deliver this week as we've been celebrating a family reunion with my parents, cousin, brothers, their spouses, all of our kids and all their kids. An amazing gathering where we had plenty to be thankful for.

I'm pretty sure Maya is thankful for Dallas plus her human relatives and friends.

Sure hope you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving.
