Amid wispy straw tufts and a barren thicket of gnarled branches, the landscape bursts to life with a sea of lavender, purple, and white crocuses.
Stumbling upon this heart lifting springtime scene - particularly after a long cold winter cooped up inside the house - would normally be delightful, but @jessicaliborstudio decided to challenge Mother Nature to a grand painterly duel by creating an oil plein air version which memorializes that 'anything is possible' vibe **365 days a year**.
If you aren't instantly swept up in the alchemy of Jessica bringing her painterly landscape to life under a canopy of drifting clouds and a gentle breeze, your heart is begging you to hit the replay button. Just do it.
This wonderfully grounding painting (literally and metaphorically) will be on display at Jessica's @eracontemporary solo show, "Preternatural", which opens Sunday, September 11th at the Garden Barn Loft of Philadelphia, PA's @tylerarboretum.
If you live in the Philly area or plan to visit, you are very welcome to attend her free opening reception. All you need to do is register right here:

@kellymariebeeman’s paintings exhale positive energy: Her dreamlike everyday scenes show comfortable and relaxed subjects within a minimal yet expressive composition. The watercolour piece ‘Nap’ from 2018 is now available in collaboration with @artforchange as a limited edition print. You should have a look and secure your fair share of peaceful energy!
“Be patient with yourself. Keep going. Things will work out better than you have imagined. You’re probably all over someone’s mood board...and don’t even know it!”
Thanks to queen and hair genius @nikkinelms, an artist “with a comb and a dream”, for these empowering words… and believe us, you are all over our mood boards! Nikki created these fantastic looks for @allure.
