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 351 – Don’t Let Yesterday Use Up Too Much Of Today

Don’t let yesterday use up too much of today. – Cherokee Proverb Oh, how difficult this is. I find it amazing what my mind goes back to. I love the idea of living in the moment and not dwelling on the past but what an incredibly difficult practice this is. I think this proverb is […]

Day 335 – Rules? What Rules?

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.  Katharine Hepburn I set some rules upon myself on Day One of Art Apple A Day. They were: A 5” x 5” image – no other restrictions except that it could not be photographs or digital art. It had to be done by hand. […]

Day 333 – Comfort And Safety
