An apple for the teacher....

- by Kelli Ann Dubay

This week's theme: Apples

Apples - a simple fruit found in lunch boxes. Well, not exactly. They are a prize for the Gods, keep the doctor away, and are often used to "bribe" the teacher on test day. Traditional symbols of the harvest, we use them to decorate our homes at holidays and through out the year. We find them in our legends, our religions and our favorite stories. Not only were apples used in various spells and seductions, they were a major player in the downfall of mankind. Quite a resume for a "simple fruit."

Oh... they taste good, too.

Art: An apple for the teacher.... by Artist Kelli Ann Dubay
I created this artwork of an apple because this year for my daughters first day of school we got a nice apple for her to bring to her teacher. So this is very symbolic of my daughter growing up. I created this very small, because it represented how young and small she is to me. (PS! Please ignore the fingernail! Sorry!)
