I'm very excited because I finally have a desktop computer again! I do all my drawing and reading on my iPad, but it is very difficult to keep up with my blog(s) on my iPad. Now, thanks to my mom & dad, I have a new (to me) desktop computer to use for blogging, homeschooling, and generally computing things! The worst part is that now I have to transfer all my files from the desktop that didn't connect to the internet to this one. I'm going to try to stay on top of this blog, but I may get behind due to the transfer process. I'm pumped though because now I'll be able to blog more regularly and keep up with my TeachersPayTeachers store! Hip hip hooray!
Here is another horse drawing for your coloring pleasure! This one is part of my Intricate My Little Curly collection. I've combined a horse image with a floral image to create an image in the style of many adult coloring books. The flowers are Edelweiss- a German mountain flower. The horse is performing the piaffe - a trot in place.

I'm so excited! I finished laying out and writing the words to my first coloring book. Well, I guess it is my second coloring book since I have already collaborated with another Catholic Homeschooler to produce a First Holy Communion copy/coloring book. Today's project, A Simple Catholic Coloring Book, was my own idea, drawings, and layout. It is 64 pages with 30 full-page Catholic images. I drew information from several books in order to make each image have a discussion of what it means to us as Catholics. Here's the cover:
Here's a peek at the inside:
I'll be offering it as a PDF file as well as in hard copy at some point. I'm hoping for some real interest in this and for it to get the ball rolling on my intention to publish several coloring books!
Tell me what you think or if you'd be interested in purchasing one of these books.

Yesterday was the feast of the Transfiguration of Jesus. While standing on the mountain top, the disciples got a glimpse of Heaven. It affected Peter so much that he spoke nonsense. While I don't have a drawing specific to the Transfiguration, I will offer this image of the Divine Mercy for your coloring pleasure in this our Year of Mercy.

Here is a regal image or Mary on a field of roses in honor of next week's Assumption of Mary! Enjoy coloring her!
She is an example of my Intricate Catholic series--Catholic images with detailed backgrounds designed for meditation and prayer. Many of the 'adult' coloring book images are based on other false religion meditation images meant to focus the artist inward to achieve a higher plane. My images are designed to showcase the beautiful imagery of our Catholic Faith along with small detail work in the background as a meditative reflection of God's glory. Many of my background images feature God's beautiful flowers as an offering to the main person of the image. In this way, relaxing coloring can also become prayerful and medative coloring. If you are interested in more Intricate Catholic images, please contact me.
God bless you and enjoy!
