Happy week of Valentine’s Day! To celebrate the holiday of love, I’ve decided to show my appreciation to my patrons and collectors! On Valentine’s Day at 3pm, I’ll be choosing a winning participant to receive this original framed oil painting I’ve done. If you win, wherever you are in the world, I’ll ship it to you…free!
To enter, all you have to do is share this blog post on a form of social media, and comment below on a reason you enjoy my work. That’s it! This contest is also being run on my Instagram account, @jessicaliborstudio. If you win, I’ll message you on February 14 to get your shipping details. The painting is called “The soft sky and silky river,” and is an oil on canvas, 2.5 by 3.5 inch painting.
It reminds me of one of my favorite vacation times ever, when my family and I went canoeing for the weekend down the NJ rivers. I saw wildlife, fish, cloud formations, forests, and had the sensation so peaceful of floating on the water just how a bird does. So remember, just two steps: 1. share a link to this post on social media. 2. Comment below on what you enjoy about my work.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, this look was created by pairing a velvet top with a long pale pink skirt, and a small simple velvet choker around the neck. The pictures were taken at the magical, fairyland “fernery” at the Morris Arboredum, a beautiful gem in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I normally have long hair, but created the bobbed look by curling with hot rollers and using a hair net to create the illusion of shorter hair.
Recently I’ve been getting into vintage styling as a creative outlet, and will also be using this blog as a place to share some favorite looks, as well! I can’t help but feel that fashion is an extension of art, and the two fields influence each other, and certainly my work.
Good luck with the contest, and Happy Valentine’s!
