Out of all of my books and all of the drawings in each book, do you ever wonder how I choose which drawing to color next?

So do I, lol.

There’s not a lot of thought or logic to it. Some days a particular title strikes me as being one that really matches my mood. Today, transitioning into a new year made it feel like Breathe was the book to consider. And in the spirit of wide open, relaxed breathing – the wide tipped edition sounded particularly nice.

I picked this picture because those little stained glass style shapes near the outer edge felt bright as soon as I saw them, and a second glance at the picture had me looking at the way the whole design kind of blooms outward. It might be a lily in a pond, or a sunflower opening up or perhaps even a star in the dark sky. I’m actually typing this before I start coloring, so it could turn into just about anything.

Let’s see what happens next!
