Just for Fun

Just for Fun

Here’s a little something I did just for fun. I recently purchased an adult coloring book.

I’m not kidding. It’s a real thing.

While I was working on the picture below, my husband, Greg, wandered into my study. “You’re not working,” he accused. “You’re playing.”

“I’m working. I’m experimenting with color!”

Greg left, shaking his head.

There is something very satisfying about coloring, watching the picture “fill up” before your eyes. It’s relaxing.


If you’d like to read further about the adult coloring phenomenon, read Jamie Jones’ article, “16 Colouring Books that are Perfect for Adults.” Or if you’d like to print out some pictures to color, see Parade’s article, “Free Download: Coloring Pages from Popular Adult Coloring Books.”

So, what do you think? Are you coloring? Or better yet, artists out there, are you making line drawings for your own coloring books? Comment below.
