Interest in the adult coloring book craze has been amazing. You can find book after book in craft stores, book stores and even printable pages online. Of course- don’t you just know- I have to add in a few of my own drawings to the mix.
My drawings are from some of the cards that I made using rubber stamps that I designed for various stamp companies. Some are from paintings that I did and some are from block cuts. The abstracts are drawings that I made especially for this project.
There are three collections assembled here. Click on the image or on the title of the collection that you want to get the full sized PDF file that you can print out for free. No kidding, no come-ons and no unending pesky ads to load up before you can download your coloring pages.

Have fun! And, if you can, send me pics of your work in the comments section. I would love to see the collaboration between my art and your beautiful coloring of it.
I often have to look at a painting for quite a while before I know that it’s finished. I had put this one away some time ago, not quite sure where I wanted to go with it. Today, I thought that I would finish some “old” paintings. So I got this one out and guess what? I think that I like it just the way it is. It may be that I recognized an old friend that I hadn’t seen in a while, but i think that I’ll leave this one alone. 🙂
A friend posted this on Facebook about an early English doll factory. It is completely interesting (if you are into dolls). But I also wanted to share a modern doll factory in comparison. Yep, the times have changed.
I just had to share one of my new favorite paper places on the web. If you love paper projects, you will LOVE Mel’s blog – Melstampz. She includes the smallest detail in her tutorials. The tutorials are easy to follow, with step-by step instructions, lots of photos and printable templates. There also a ton of free paper designs. I love the one with all of the ephemera styled papers. Mel’s tags are adorable as well.
How Cute is this little ribbon spool with a hidden compartment?!♥
In my previous post, In the Art Studio with Robert Shields, we got to tour Robert’s art studio. Now I want to show you his bead collection and a few pieces of his jewelry.
Robert is a “maker”. He loves to draw and design art elements, so he has his hands in all forms of art. His company, Robert Shields Creations encompasses a huge variety of artwork including a line of sterling silver pendants, brooches and beaded jewelry.
Robert Shields is a mime, turned actor, turned artist. Well, that is not exactly right. Robert first became well known all over the world as THE San Francisco Street Mime in the 60′s and 70′s. Then he joined up with dancer Lorene Yarnell. Together they created and starred in their own TV variety show: Shields and Yarnell. But he has been an artist for far longer than that.
