Jill Banks of Fairfax, Virginia
LPAPA’s May 2021 Artist Member of the Month
“I paint to capture life’s magic … to transport you inside my oil paintings — to feel that breeze, hear the sounds, watch what happens, smell the beer. My dancer dances. I travel everywhere with my easel, setting it up in markets, on busy streets, in a restaurant or bar, at the farm to paint the animals as they wander around in the field. Standing there for hours, I soak up my surroundings so that what it FEELS like to be there (wonderful) transfers to the canvas.” –Jill Banks
