Day 304 – A Saturday Apple-A-Thon For A Sunday

I didn’t do a Saturday apple yesterday. So since I had a very long day I decided to do it today – but with a twist… This apple is representative of the apples I will be doing for the Apple-A-Thon. How many of these do you think I can paint in 24 hours? Closest guess […]

Day 303 – An Experiment

Every great inspiration is but an experiment. – Charles Ives Lately on Saturdays I’ve been creating a “Saturday Apple” – an apple that is pretty but simply painted and that doesn’t include any post. It was a bit of a compromise with Doug because I was spending a lot of time on the weekends on […]

Day 302 – My Inspiration

Over the winter I talked a lot about feeling like I didn’t have any ideas for my apples. I probably became a bit of a broken record for a period of about two weeks. And then it cleared and I’ve been fine until today. Total creative block. So I asked for help – thank you […]

Day 301 – Eleven Things To Try When You Can’t Smile Away The Pain

A lovely woman – a new good friend – asked the question today about how to help with the pain when the meds have run out. That is something I would love to have the answer to because the pain of autoimmune arthritis can be excruciating and when you don’t have the means to get […]

Day 299 – I’m Alright

I am so much better today. Thank you to everyone for letting me have a moment. Sometimes in life I think we just need to let it all out – oy – I guess I did! I had my infusion today so the pain has already subsided some. Remicade can really wipe me out for […]

Day 298 – Split In Two

I’ve been sitting here trying to come to grips with what I’m feeling. I’m tired – but that isn’t a feeling. I’m tired – of making apples. As much as I love what I’m doing – and I do love it… I’m tired of so much of all of this. Is it ok that I […]

Day 297 – Saying Nothing

Day 295 – A Smallish Nap… or Two

”Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.” -Winnie the Pooh Poor Pooh has been lost in the Harry Potter buzz. I adore Winnie The Pooh. Ok, so who doesn’t? There is a new Disney animated film about the Hundred Acre Woods with the whole cast of characters – Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Owl, Kanga […]
