4" x 6"
about this piece.
This is the first thing I painted after Lucy died. I couldn't do anything, really, I was so overcome with grief. And I decided to follow a How-To Watercolor book and the projects, just to keep my mind occupied. This little apple represents the first hour, or however long it took, in which I felt a sense of calm and concentration after my daughter's death. It isn't the best apple in the world, but it isn't poisoned either. In a lot of ways, this apple is the beginning of my exploration of creativity in my grief, and I guess the first domino in a chain reaction to this website.--Angie
