Day 212 – Saturday Apple No. 6

The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.  ~John Vance Cheney I am grateful everyday that I can feel the pull and want of creativity. I crave creating now that the daily habit has become just part of who I am and what I do. I have had so many years dealing […]

Day 211 – Hands Around The Globe

We are all clasping hands. Today was a great day for Ankylosing Spondylitis Awareness. Our project Hope & Apples is being featured in a collaboration with the Australian Physiotherapy Association seminar and webinar happening world wide on World AS Day May 7th! Until tomorrow.

Day 210 – From A-pples to Z-zzzzz’s

Big, bold, and wonderful thoughts of all things apples are creating the best sleep I’ve had in years! Chronic illness tends to lead to unrestful and unfulfilling sleep. I think I went years where I never woke feeling rested and I still have bouts and stretches where I unfortunately rely on my Ambien instead of […]

Day 209 – My Soul’s True Path

I’ve been thinking of creating an apple image in indigo ink. The problem has been that I didn’t have any indigo ink so I’ve pushed the idea aside. But tonight I felt the idea pull me so I made a deep rich watercolor using both Payne’s Gray and well.. indigo (now you are laughing) yes, […]

Day 208 – Impressions

A picture is the expression of an impression. If the beautiful were not in us, how would we ever recognize it? – Ernst Haas

Day 207 – One Story and One Apple at a time…

We are making progress everyday. One story and one apple at a time we will raise awareness of spondylitis. I wonder where the journey will take us – I’m just so thrilled that so many people are joining me and speaking up. Funny things happen when you talk about what you are passionate about. I […]

“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.”- Jack Kerouac I’m ready for some soft spring days and nights. It was cold and […]

Day 205 – Basket of Goodies

Loved this idea that Kelly Johnston had for me today. I was thinking about creating an apple that just looked like a colored egg – simple and easy – lol. But I was on the phone with Kelly and she said, “Oh, make the basket the apple shape!” and that was enough inspiration to set […]

Day 204 – Easter Bunny Apple

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to design a few holiday apples. When I started Art Apple A Day it was October so I did about a week of Halloween apples; a haunted house with an apple trick or treater, a candy corn, a skeleton with the apple core as the center, and “‘one […]
