Capturing Life in Oils
The artist says, “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 French Table captures Jill’s favorite room in the house – a romantic nook in her kitchen that was inspired by the airbnb that husband Randy and she stayed in last summer in St. Paul-de-Vence. Jill picked that home because she knew that kitchen would turn into a painting. At the time, she wasn’t aware that her home would start to evolve into that very special spot. Read more about how My French Table came to be here.
Staying home these months has made her look around. If she can’t be outside exploring to capture the world in paint, en plein air, what was inside those walls would be her muse. See her website, www.JillBanks.com, to sign up for her monthly newsletter to catch the latest paintings, news, and tales. After a successful series of Spring online classes, she’ll be offering one or two this summer.
