Fall Themed Coloring Page

I will always enjoy pencil drawing but I have recently delved into drawing with pen / ink and found that I enjoy creating coloring pages for teens and adults. We are always looking for ways to de-stress and unwind, even pass the time in a waiting room. Coloring is perfect for all of the above! All you need is a set of colored pencils, a coloring book and you’re set!

A little about me: I have a ‘vision’ bucket list and drawing is on it, but more specifically I’d like to make a coloring book. The reason it’s a vision list is that I am living with an eye condition RP (Retinitis Pigmentosa), that is slowly robbing me of my sight. Don’t feel sad for me though, no one knows what lies ahead in this life and with RP, I do know and knowing in a way, can be an advantage. We all have a challenge and this is mine, so I plan to remember as much of this world as I can commit to memory and appreciate the beauty that is everywhere. My coloring book will celebrate sight, color and my love of this planet!

About my Coloring Book

The Lighthouse – a sneak peek at page one of my coloring book!

In November 2015 I began to draw with a coloring book in mind. I’m a believer that creating art holds the power to calm the mind and soothe the soul. Sit down after a long day, with a book full of drawings waiting to be brought to life with color. Whether you choose colored pencils, water color pencils, or simply a graphite pencil for adding shadows and depth, it’s going to be a sweet diversion, I promise.

Adults coloring is not a new thing! I remember as a child opening my favorite coloring book — my mother colored one side and I colored the other. When I became the mother, I colored one side and my child colored the other! The difference today is that we have a great assortment of adult themes, detailed patterns, designs and pictures to choose from and personalize as we desire.

My first coloring book, now almost a year later, is nearly ready for print! These are a couple of the drawings that will appear in my book. If they are as much fun for you to color as they were for me to draw then I’ll consider this project a success.

I will post the title and availability in the coming weeks; thank you sincerely for your interest in my book!
