Something from my sketchbook. Didn’t have any paints with me, so I colored it with coffee leftover from the morning.
Little painting I made for my friend. Happy birthday, Heather!

I might be slow and everyone else already knew this, but I just realised what the apple in Narnia might reference.
For those who don’t know about the apple, Digory in the first book takes an apple with him from the mountains close to Narnia, the apples in Narnia gives eternal life, but you’ll hate them forever, Jadis(the white witch) eats one of these and Aslan plants one of these trees in Narnia to protect it from her. Anyways Digory takes one with him to save his dying mother, which the apples still do in our world but she doesn’t live forever. Digory then buries the apple-seeds with the rings which made him and Polly travel to other worlds. Then Digory grows up and moves. And later he realised that the apple-tree might be dangerous, so he cuts it down one night. He then makes a big wardrobe out of it, the wardrobe in the lion the witch and the wardrobe.
Now if you are familiar with king Arthur you know that his witch-sister Morgana takes the injured Arthur to her Island Avalon from where he’ll return when needed.
Linguistics believe that Avalon comes from the welsh word afal, which means apple. So Avalon possibly means apple-island or something similar. It’s a place unaffected by time and with magic to save a dying man and let him live forever…
Like the orchard in the mountains, or the whole of Narnia to us.
