Today is Day 23 of the Art Apple A Day Retrospective – for information on the project click here.
Day Twenty Three – October 23, 2010
Looking back 10 years ago today…
I decided to run to the art store but we had moved into the country a few years before – running into town was a 15 mile trek. The art supply store was calling though so off I went. I dream about buying more paints mostly but I do have a new fetish for exceptional brushes and I was dying for a new Red Sable watercolor brush. Alas, the ones I love are pricey! I headed back to the ranch with a new set of soft pastels that I put to quick work to create this – my first of many pastel apples.

And the story will continue tomorrow…
Side Note: Just a reminder that there is a fundraiser going on for ALL A.S. Charities. It’s an Apple Calendar – imagine that!!! See it HERE – $5 from the sale of each calendar goes to whichever AS charity you choose. The small profit I make helps me to be able to devote the time to this blog and raising awareness – I so appreciate all the support! xO
Oh – I almost forgot! Everyone who purchases a calendar before November 1st is entered to win an original apple. It’s this beautiful glitter apple. The photos doesn’t do it justice – it’s framed and ready to go too!
