"Mandarins" is one of the first paintings of 2017. I've been working on starts for a few portrait commissions ... but need to take care of a couple of other steps before I can proceed with those. Thus ... I HAD to take advantage of a flower arrangement put together for a neat family gathering this past weekend, right?
I also had the pleasure of attending an open life in the Great Falls School last Friday afternoon. The two-and-a-half hour session was filled with short gestures and then a bit longer, then longer poses to finish out the day. "Open Life Standing Pose" was the second to last

There's more to write ... but I'm out of time.
"The Road Show" Solo Exhibit Up Until January 31 at the Great Falls Library, 9830 Georgetown Pike, Great Falls, VA
View the exhibit online at www.JillBanks.com
Get info about library hours here. (The library is closed on Sundays and January 16, January 20)
The meeting room -- where the exhibit is on view -- is frequently being used so don't be too surprised if there's a group inside. Generally weekday afternoons are the safest bet but if you are planning a trip, please feel free to ask me about the schedule and I might just meet you over there as well. Email me at email@example.com.
Thank you for reading and your support... Hope to see you soon!
Happy New Year!
