Hi sweet friends! What a week it has been, right? I'm sure that everyone has been impacted in some way this past week or so from the recent Covid-19 pandemic. My heart is truly breaking for so many people.
Fortunately, there are still a lot of good things going on right now in the world, too...people spending more time at home together, perhaps finding time to spend doing hobbies, the flowers are beginning to bloom as spring is upon us, communities are helping one another in many unique ways, and so much more. Yes, I am worried about what's going to happen next and who all will be affected even more through this. But if we focus on all the negative, it would just be unbearable. So I'm choosing to focus on the good (most of the time, at least).
Sharing art is one thing I know to do in times of trouble. Creating has always been a way I deal with stress and I wanted to share that in a very simple way with you today. This project is something I do with my students at the Boys and Girls Club. They're always surprised when I tell them that I drew the coloring page they're working on, and that technically we're collaborating on a piece of art together!
So let's collaborate...I know you're going to make these images SO beautiful with your coloring! Click on the images below to save and print. Coloring may seem like such an elementary thing to do, but I say coloring can be for any age. Print these for yourself, your kids, etc. and be sure to snap a photo and share your finished masterpieces with me so I can see and share, too!
I'm brainstorming ways to continue bringing you joy through art during this difficult time for everyone and can't wait to continue sharing more. Blessings and love to you!
I love them so much, thank you for spreading joy at this time!
Love! Coloring in my inspirational books is such a calming practice for me. I’m no artist, but I can pretend to be one in those pages. 😉 Thanks for sharing your work, Bethany. You should consider selling a book!
How very sweet of you to create and share these! I’ve shared your link on FB.
