HOT NEW ART
Award-winning artist Jill Banks paints wherever she goes, witnessing and capturing life on location. Her impressionistic oils can be seen in top exhibitions, plein air events and fine art festivals nationwide. In 2011, she painted “100 Faces in 100 Days” of anyone who volunteered, from January 1 through April 10. She teaches in Great Falls.

I started "Among Royalty" on location in Madrid years ago and recently reworked it in my studio to bring out the brilliant sunset light that bathed the gardens around the Royal Palace. It was selected by Fine Art Connoisseur's Editor, Peter Trippi, for inclusion in the current issue's Today's Masters Portfolio "A Time for Twosomes" on p. 66, May/June 2021.
