Today is Day 61 of the Art Apple A Day Retrospective – for information on the project click here.
Day Sixty One – November 30, 2010
Looking back 10 years ago today…
Very few of the 365 apples disappoint me and this is one. It’s ok… I guess… but I wish I didn’t have any that I felt that way about. I won’t spend any more time on it but I do think it is ok to acknowledge when we create and share something that isn’t up to our vision and aesthetic.
I do however love where the idea came from!
Shifting to today in 2020: We put up our live tree yesterday and we went all out with color and oodles of ornaments this year! 2020 seemed to need the intensity and grand display to help our heavy hearts. I’m usually a white lights and more subtle color combination Christmas decoration type which may seem at odds with my intense and saturated artwork of today. I do have one tree in living room that I just put white lights on and a simple handmade garland but my sunroom/tv room has the live tree with the LED lights and every ornament possible! You can see my trees this year on my Instagram page.

And the story will continue tomorrow…
Side Note: Later today I will post the November 2020 Apple!!! I also want to share that as of December 1st I will not post the apples to the Facebook page any longer. The apples will be here on the website or on the Art Apple A Day Instagram page. Just trying to cut back on some of the time I spend on Social Media in 2021 and have more time available for creating art – which I post a lot of on my other Instagram here!
