Fourth Coloring Book to be Published

Hello All,

Mild Things of the World coverWell, I am very excited to share with you that we are finally going to publish my fourth coloring book, Mild Things of the World, in just about two weeks!  Here is a preview of the cover of my book showing “Rosy the Goat”. It was so much fun creating all of these images of our favorite pets, animals and critters whom we all love and live with. I hope you enjoy having as much fun coloring them!

As life has it, right in the middle of completing the publication we are about to move. This is a special move bringing us closer to our children and grandchildren. They are my greatest inspiration.  Moving takes a lot of time and energy but I am looking forward to setting up my studio in our new home so I can continue bringing what I love doing best to you. My next project will be a table top hard cover book with some illustrations and compositions showing how I draw my coloring book images. It will contain the completed images of all four coloring books and many other individual drawings done over the past years.  It is a wonderful experience when artists can share their work and show others how we do what we do. I love learning and sharing with others what gives me great satisfaction and joy.

Burrrr!! Winter is Here!

Welcome to Winter!Horse drawing

We woke up this morning to icy snow everywhere. The temperature dipped to 29 degrees and we are expecting more icy rain through the week. This is a good time to stay indoors and avoid driving anywhere on those scary slippery roads. That being said, I have decided to stay home and take some time to write this blog while keeping the heater under my desk!!

We have been doing some revisions on my first three coloring books. You can order them by clicking on BOOKS on my website page.

Here is another example of one of the images in my fourth coloring book, which will be published this month. This is called “Psychedelic Horse”. It is one of my favorite drawings and was so much fun to work on.  I am sure you will spend hours coloring this whimsical horse and forgetting all about that cold wintery weather outside.

Stay warm! Blessings,

Fishing in Summer

Boy in a Bottle FishingHere we are in the heat of summer! 90 degrees and above is way hot for me. My perfect temperature for summer is 75 degrees with a slight breeze. With no air conditioning we are using all of our fans to keep cool. But, this isn’t stopping me from working diligently on my new (third) coloring book titled Wild Things for Kids.

My second coloring book, Wild Things of the Oceans, Lakes and Streams, was published on Amazon on June 8th, almost exactly one year after my first coloring book, Wild Things of the World.

My Wild Things for Kids coloring book will be twice as big as the first two books and I am adding several activities including Crossword Puzzles, Mazes, Dot-to-Dot and Word Find, for a very fun coloring book for children from ages 6 years to 12 years, although anyone can have fun with this book! I hope to publish it on Amazon in early fall.

I relax and un-stress from the heat while having fun working on and coloring in my favorite coloring books. I hope you do too!

Have fun fishing!

Hello and welcome to the grand opening of my new Blog. I published my first coloring book, Wild Things of the World, in June 2021. I am currently working on my second coloring book, Wild Things of the Oceans, Lakes and Streams, to be published and available to the public early this summer. I am so excited to be able to share my artwork and connect with you.

Looking forward to sharing more with you.
