Day 329 – Pin Cushion

Infusion day always feels a little like human pin cushion day! My infusion nurses are awesome and my nurse today knows and empathizes like few could – you see, she too has AS. I’ll be feeling great in no time – love my Remicade but it does knock me flat for a day or two […]

Day 328 – Bead Me Up!

Bead me up Scotty… Well, you know the rest. I definitely feel this way driving in city traffic, watching Jersey Shore (I may be one of the only people on the face of the planet who’s watched it only once), and when dealing with health insurance billing issues! I continue to love making the fabric […]

Day Fifty Nine – Which hue?

I love picking out paint colors.  There is something glorious about walking up to a wall of colors that exhilarates me – I get the same rush when I go to the art supply, fabric store, yarn shop or even Pottery Barn or Nordstom’s for that matter.  The possibilities abound and whether or not I’m […]

Day Fifty eight – Dash of this, some of that.

A dash of this and a hint of that  – and mix it all up.  Mixed media or collage are such a boring names for throwing it all together.  Maybe I’ll start calling mixed media pieces “everything but the kitchen sink” or “visual carnival” or perhaps more appropriately, “disparate madness” – ooh I like it! […]

Day Thirty – Apple n’ Bones

I had such a creative block today. Tomorrow for Halloween I have an Apple o’ Lantern planned but I think I’ve done every conceivable Halloween image possible.  At least it seems that way but with 365 days of apples needed, I will be creating Art Apples that are relevant to the calendar, current events and […]

Day Twenty four – Halloween Week!

    This week will be very fun – cuz what’s more fun than Halloween?  And there might be a few surprises as well – don’t forget… you can sign up via email on the bottom of the page to get an email notice when I post my Art Apple each day.  And if this […]

Day Twenty three – Green Pastel

I decided to make chicken soup, cauliflower soup, and chicken enchilada casserole – this afternoon!  I’ve pretty much figured out that if I’m going to work full time, have a life,  and create my apples then something has gotta give.  So I’ll need to prepare some food ahead. So, before starting on chopping onions and […]

Day Twenty two – Save the Cat Apple

So, I was thinking today about why cats go running up trees.  Do you think they know that they may not find their way down or that they may get stuck and need help?  It seems that it is just their nature and they head that way regardless. But, isn’t that what we all do […]

Day Twenty – Wallpaper mixed media

Great to be home! My cat Bittie couldn’t stay off my lap today – and Ella my sweet Border Collie/Aussie mix was attached to my side. I’m very excited to have my studio and plethora of supplies at hand. I have to share with you a couple of emails I got from my Dad tonight […]

Day Nineteen – Pink Apple for Breast Cancer

Just under the wire tonight.  I’ve been wanting to do a pink apple for my friend Sandy and all women dealing with breast cancer. I spent the evening flying back home to Denver and I drew this somewhere over Iowa and Nebraska and got home just with enough time to watercolor the design.  Whew! Until […]
