Day One

My first Apple

Art Apple - Day One

So here’s the Concept:  To give the gift of my art in a unique way.  To bring awareness to Ankylosing Spondylitis and support my love of creating art.

Idea:  Make a piece of small art of an apple each day starting October 1, 2010 and give the original away and document the process online via blog and website.  Start by posting it on my blog – thefeedingedge.com.  Post the piece each day and follow up with posts of who I gave the original to and a story about it.  Prints will be available for sale onwww.ArtAppleADay.com.

This concept incorporates

  1. Ankylosing Spondylitis Awareness
  2. Sharing my art with the world.
  3. Community and giving.

Background:  An apple a day keeps the doctor away has its beginnings dating back to 1866 as Welsh folk proverb.  http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/an-apple-a-day.html .  I will use the image of the Apple every day as a way to help people with a horrible disease by bring awareness, giving gifts of the pieces to my supporters, AS survivors, and people who need a piece of joy, and by selling the prints to support my efforts and future donations to great causes for health.

Specifics of Art:  A small manageable daily drawing/painting/mixed media piece produced each day.  A 6” x 6” piece of paper with a 5” x 5” image – no other restrictions.

    Hey Jenna – great idea, and anyone who gets to see your artwork is blessed! Maybe I’m a bit biased right now, but how about an apple in pink (maybe a Pink Lady) for breast cancer! Love ya, Sandy

    Thank you so much for all of the lovely comments! I repeat the AS mantra “Stand Tall!” to myself all the time – especially since slouching is so much easier for us AS’ers! Look forward to seeing you here again soon…
