Day Fifty three – Paisley no. 2

Art Apple - Day Fifty three

Art Apple - Day Fifty three

Day Eighteen (October 18th) was my first Paisley, but I did it in black & white and since then I’ve really wanted to do a companion piece in really bright colors.  The pattern is almost identical but there are slight differences since I don’t digitally color my work – I create it all the old fashioned way – I sketch it out, refine the design, and transfer the design to good paper before drawing it out in ink before laying in the color – usually watercolor or gouache and occasionally in Letraset Pantone Tria markers like today.  The colors are extremely vivid and are a great way to get color consistency from one area of the design to another unlike watercolor where I’m looking for the inconsistency and blended movement of the color.

I sat in on a WEGO webinar this evening.  It was about health activism in chronic pain communities and it was very informative.  But I’m having trouble trying to figure out where I fit in with my Art Apples.  What I’m trying to do is to find a way to capture people’s interest who know nothing about AS and because they are intrigued by my endeavor – they stop and have to pay attention to what Ankylosing Spondylitis is.  I think I’m trying to bring awareness but I don’t think I fit into the activism area.  As time goes by – I’m sure this path I’m on will lead me where I’m supposed to go.

Until tomorrow.


Day 53 was created with pen & ink and Letraset Tria Pantone markers.

    They still look like funky little paramecium to me; most handsome, I’d say. I vote for a Honey Crisp in full color sometime down the road. What a find they were.
