The Yapes Paints annual Birthday contest is back! Each year in February I celebrate another year in business as a thriving artist with a fun contest. It is my way of saying THANK YOU for all of your support!
This year I am hosting an “Inspiring Tree Photo Contest”! As you know, I am a bit tree obsessed and trees can be found in most of my painting. For me, the deep roots, strong trunks and reaching branches symbolize strength, growth, community and family. I also find trees totally magical! I want you to share a photo of a tree you find inspiring. Tell me a little story about that tree, where it lives, why it stood out to you and what it means to you. I will be choosing the top 3 entries and having my social media followers vote for their top pick. Later this year I will create a painting inspired by the winning photo!
How to enter:
- Take a photo of a tree that inspires you, one that stands out as extra special to you. (* To enter this must be a photo you have taken yourself, may be a photo from the past or present, may be edited*)
- Email the photo to me at [email protected] along with these 3 things:
- Where the photo was taken
