Bucks County Plein Air: Quick Draw and Sale

"Garden Subjects," oil, 16"h x 12"w, ©2017 Jill Banks
I've got to be quick ... Today I received an Honorable Mention for my one-and-a-half hour painting "Garden Subjects" at the Bucks County Plein Air Competition.  You can see it and at this point, five other paintings on Sunday, June 11 at the Bucks County Community College Newtown Campus at 275 Swamp Road in the Linksz Pavilion/Gym from 10am to 4pm.  Then, these beautiful paintings will head home with the 50 painters participating.  So, don't miss it.

We've all been painting like crazy. 

See some of my pieces from the past week on my website ... go to the Bucks County Plein Air events page.

So much news to share ... but it will all have to wait for a moment.

That's the news for now. Thanks for reading!
