Art Apple A Day – 365 Apples Created Everyday For A Year!

Hello & welcome! Thank you for your interest in the Apples For AS. This site is an archive of the Art Apple A Day project originally posted on The Feeding Edge by Jennifer Dye Visscher to help raise awareness of a disease she has called Ankylosing Spondylitis. The apples were posted in blog format so […]

Day 364 – One More Apple

One day to go. I can’t believe it. Only one apple left after tonight. It’s been a crazy few days and to be honest – I’m feeling exhausted. Between the event preparations of this last month, the travel and jet lag, and the early morning today to get ready for being at KPIX at 7:00 […]

Day 361 – Happy Apple Day!

Today is Johnny Appleseed Day! I for one will celebrating and thinking about the glorious apple. They have come to mean so much to me and hopefully to you all as well. Maybe I had apples on the brain all those months ago because it is simply the time of the year for the apple […]

Day 350 – My Mom’s Perspective

When I was around six we lived on a farm outside of Montpelier, Vermont. It was somewhat isolated up a hill off […]

Day 266 – Turn the Blue Apple GREEN!

I’ve been making apples for 9 months now. I’ve learned so much about so much. What a crazy wonderful ride it has been so far and I love every day I can say I’m an artist, a blogger, and I want to tell the world about Autoimmune Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondylitis. Some may ask why […]

Day 175 – I Will Not Give Up, I Will Not Give Up…

I simply refuse to give up. I’ve given up before and I don’t like the feeling. You try to justify why you quit – you just changed your mind really – it wasn’t quitting. Stopping for reasons beyond your control happens to everyone – myself included and there are reasons to make a life change. […]
