Day Ninety seven – Mobius Apple

We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time.  – T.S. Eliot Think of a Mobius strip as a metaphor for ourselves and our lives – with outer and inner sides intertwined, complex – inseparable – […]

Day Eighty eight – All Heart and One Apple

I’m amazed by the wonderful people I’m meeting and their support and encouragement keeps me going. This piece was inspired by them – their love surrounds me everyday and this week it is especially needed.  As most of you know, I get an I.V. infusion of a biologic medication called Remicade to help control my […]

Day Seventy seven – Wrapping Paper Collage Apple

Care packages to Maine and Maryland are in the mail! We have a tradition in our family to write clues about the present on the gift tag – we may ask for one or two specific gifts but additional small presents are a surprise and the clues make for great fun when opening the big […]

Day Seventy five – Blue for Spondylitis

I’ve made it through 75 days today! I have to admit that I wouldn’t have made it this far without the encouragement and support of so many people.  As time goes on, I will be talking about how my support team and some new friends have kept me going.  I will fulfill my pledge and create my 365 days of apples and […]

Day Seventy four – Argyle Wrap!

I have wrapping paper on the brain! I’m furiously finishing up my Christmas shopping to get care packages in the mail by Wednesday.  Every year I think I’ll get it all done ahead of time so that I don’t put the added stress and strain on myself during the holidays – and every year I […]

Day Sixty four – and a Partridge in a….

Not much to post today – Doug and I are going to play Scrabble and have a glass of wine.  An exciting evening at theVisscher household! Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 64 was created with pen & ink

Day Sixty – Pattern Play

Wikipedia says that a pattern comes from the French word patron (I thought that was a tequila) and is a type or theme of recurring events or objects that repeat in a predictable manner. I’ve always been interested in creating patterns and have experimented with them in my art. I’ve been fascinated about the idea […]

Day Fifty six – Macy’s Day Parade

I am truly thankful for having such a wonderful husband!  Doug has been cooking up our dishes we’re taking to his Dad’s house shortly while I make my Art Apple – that’s love! My parents took us to the Macy’s Day Parade one year.  There are three things I clearly remember.  1.) My Dad lifting […]

Day Fifty four – I’m taking off my Camo!

I have Ankylosing Spondylitis.  That is extremely difficult to say and proclaim to the world.  I have spent the better part of the last ten years hiding this part of who I am.  I don’t think I’m alone or unlike so many people dealing with any of these similar inflammatory autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic […]

Day Fifty three – Paisley no. 2

Day Eighteen (October 18th) was my first Paisley, but I did it in black & white and since then I’ve really wanted to do a companion piece in really bright colors.  The pattern is almost identical but there are slight differences since I don’t digitally color my work – I create it all the old […]
