If you are subscribed to my email newsletter (through my website at AND my blog, with any luck ... you'll be getting two emails within a day of each other.  Please check them both out. The email newsletter will include many pieces from the Richmond and Telluride plein air events as well as other art news.  If you aren't subscribed to the newsletter, maybe now would be a good time ...

I mentioned way back when that the following day you'd be hearing from me with the rest of my Telluride escapades and art ... but here most of it is. Better late than never?

"Cowboy in Town," oil, 12"h x 12"w, ©2017 Jill Banks. Sold.
Most of the pieces created at Telluride Plein Air have already gone to new homes. Some of them will spur on additional pieces to come... like "Cowboy in Town" -- my first painting of the event that captured local legend cowboy Roudy in action, plein air.  Roudy kept reappearing throughout my stay in Colorado -- riding a carriage right beside my red fire truck while I was painting "Center of Attention" and again at the 4th of July parade.

See more from Telluride in the Places collection  and Sold Works on my website or in that email newsletter to come.
