collection of Lora M. Banks

Lucky for me, Joseph Daily had grown up with my cousins. I was introduced to him a few years ago, and since then have had the honor of visiting his studio in New York and taking a fantastic work shop with him in Philadelphia. 


When I first saw “Forest Song” on his web site, I remember thinking to myself that I could never own a painting like that.  Then when I saw the same painting in a show New York, I knew that I had to have it.  I had never spent that much on a piece of art before, but to me it was totally worth it. Now I consider my self both an an artist and art collector.  


Lora Banks is a painter living and working in Philadelphia.  Her luscious oils can be viewed on her site
