There is nothing like opening a beautiful coloring book, picking up one of the many pencils or pens available, and settling in to start a picture.
It is relaxing, and even doctors are recommending it for calming the mind and creating focus.
There are many types of people in the world, but I do believe that we are all born creative. When we are small we fiercely search out things to keep our mind stimulated. We looked for and found beauty everywhere. Give us two sticks, a few crayons, and a couple of leaves and we would create a masterpiece.
Some of us were sadly talked out of our relentless search for creativity for more "realistic" pursuits.
I believe this is where coloring comes in.
It is a way to free our inner artist without intimidation. We don't have to be Picasso to create a beautiful image.
We have a reason to go to the art store and search through the Polychromos pencils, the Copic or Tombow markers, and the Conti pastels.
