Whoopsie! Guess who accidently deleted all of my latest in progress photos? I guess we just have one photo today as I pick up with more of my rambling thoughts from yesterday. Now on to the rest of the ramblies: ---- The difference in feeling between "have to do" stuff and "just being" activities can [...]

More Flowers (Wide Tipped) – Day 2 Ramblie Thoughts

Yesterday I was talking a bit about the difference in feeling between "have to do" and "just being" activities. I don't know if other people feel the same way or make those same distinctions, but wow - I've been doing this since I was a kid. Cleaning my desk was a "have to do" and [...]

I tend to lead a very quiet life, with the goal to make it ever quieter. I've never been a fan of conflict - which always seems like a lot of energy wasted down a path that just isn't ever going to be satisfying. I don't generally get visibly wound up about things but instead [...]

My coloring moods tend to jump around. One day I might really be into sophisticated and artsy coloring and then the next day it's all about recapturing a sense of childlike coloring freedom. As an adult colorist, you get to decide how you want to color and there's no pressure to be consistent in your approach. [...]

I actually started today's coloring with a bit of a color plan. It was one of those "use lots of different shades" kind of days and I wanted to gradually shift color tones so that the outer edge would frame the picture with cool blue shades. Here's a slide show with my step by step [...]

More Flowers – Wide Tipped (Day 1)

I really enjoy my "For Crayons And Wide Tipped Markers" books for lighter coloring days. When life feels very spacious, I color more intricate pieces and when days feel fuller I often reach for one of my easier books. For coloring to be truly relaxing for me, it needs to be in balance with whatever kind [...]
