Jill Banks

 
Fairfax, VA

Artist's Statement

Sometimes Jill does something spectacular. In 2011, she launched her 100 Faces in 100 Days Project, inviting friends, acquaintances and strangers to sit to have their portraits painted. For the first 100 days that year, Jill painted 100 different talking, moving faces from life and then posted photos of the paintings and reflections on the sitter and sitting on her blog. Living life out on a limb was exhilarating! That project led her to pursue painting plein air in or around town. If people were no longer coming to visit daily in her studio, she would go out and find someone or something interesting to paint.

She’s kept that excitement alive since with personal painting trips; teaching a plein air workshop in Italy; participating in juried plein air competitions throughout the US and exploring the world around her daily.

Awards have been plentiful. They include Best of Show in the September 2016 BoldBrush Painting Competition, Best of Show at the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club's Members 2016 Exhibition, three Art League Best of Shows, Honorable Mention at Salon International, Certificate of Merit in Oils at the Salmagundi Club's Non-Member Exhibition, and three-time finalist in the Artists' Magazine's Annual Art Competition.
