Have you gotten into the adult coloring book craze? Meaning, coloring books geared for adults to sit and color (some say, as a means of meditation or shutting out your mind for a while - isn't that what all art does?). I got one coloring book for Christmas from Sweetie - it's from BasBleu and they have tons of coloring books geared for adults, including 2 of the Impressionists' paintings.
I started on one of the "easier" ones in the book = less little bits to color in (Van Gogh's Sunflowers). I only have a few colored pencils so I'm using my watercolor pencils and then wetting them to blend. The paper is pretty sturdy and is even perforated so, if you create a little masterpiece, you can tear it out and frame it or hang it on the fridge :) It's interesting to see how they want you to mix the colors to get the correct color that's in the painting = some mixes are of 5-6 different colors and I may just try to match the color as closely as possible.
Who would have thought adults would be hooked on coloring - or are there just hundreds of coloring books out there no one is buying? Seems like they are everywhere right now and BasBlu has some good ones = even postcards you can color and then send to someone.
I don't mean to brag about all my cool toys and presents, but I'll share another present with you next = one of my absolute favorites from this Christmas from and Etsy shop...wait and see!
We had our first snow of the season and are supposed to get 2-3 inches accumulation by tonight. Yuck!
