For the last year or so, when no one is looking, I color. Most people think I’m on the Internet all of the time. It’s true that I spend more time then the average senior on my iPhone or laptop. However, I still find time to color.
Unlike many others who have true artistic talents, I have none. I wish I could draw a little just to express myself. That will never happen, so I decided to buy adult coloring books when I really want to go into another zone.
Coloring is a fabulous way to relax. I spend many hours coloring patterns. I really love it. I also like to knit and crochet. However, that requires a lot of concentration and focus. Coloring does not. I find myself totally immersed in the color schemes. I am not aware of my surroundings and normal day-to-day challenges. I’m not the only one. Adult coloring books are selling in record-breaking numbers.
I was thrilled to hear that the newest coloring book was inspired by the world famous street artists from the Wynwood Art District in Miami. It’s a natural. Watch the video. I ordered a copy about two months ago but haven’t started it yet.
I’m busy coloring images made from a Spirograph. I bought 30 different colored Sharpies. I want to buy more. I can’t have too many colors. Yes, I’m envious of those who create their own art. Trust me, this is the next best thing.
