For someone who draws a lot of adult coloring pages, I haven't been much of a color-er myself in the past.
Well, hanging out with a just-turned-four-year-old has changed all that. Ransom recently has gotten into coloring Halloween-y things like jack-o-lanterns and monsters. They are all over his bedroom walls right now.
I got a little jealous.
I probably shouldn't tell you this, but there are so many free printable coloring pages out there. We've had hours of entertainment in our household.
Here are my recent masterpieces.
And of course I got inspired to create my own pumpkin coloring page. Later this week I plan on sending it to my newsletters subscribers, and after that making it available on Etsy.
I highly recommend coloring while watching a scary movie. It makes it much more bearable. I'm also a big fun of colored pencils, because I like to be able to shade.
(Sign up for my newsletter to get a free printable pumpkin coloring page later this week!)
I don't know what's going on with me and snails lately, but I've re-invented two old snail drawings in the past month. My "I Miss You" Snail, and now, my Christmas snail! I originally drew this little guy a few years ago
The original drawing is now hanging in my son's room. I re-drew him on my IPad, and he's now my Christmas 2020 design.
I hadn't originally planned to add words, but once I was finished with the design, I felt inspired to add some verbiage regarding Christmas being slow this year. Whether you like it or not, there will be a lot less going on this holiday season.
Pretty soon I will have this design available as cards in my Etsy shop. In the meantime, you can snatch up some cute snail wrapping paper on Society6.
Lotsa little snails, slowly getting ready for Christmas.

A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
