This is a picture from yesterday, March 29th, 2015.
Yeah, yeah. I love winter. I love snow. Blah Blah Blah.
In case you can’t tell, the lack of warmth and sunshine and green has got me feeling pretty damn cranky. I mean, it’s spring, right? Officially, as of March 20th.
So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and reintroduce the joys of colour back into my days with a rediscovery of colouring!
The benefits of this practice were twofold: first, I was appreciating the relaxation that came with immersing myself in a creative task; second, I was reveling in the saturation of colour on my page. ALL THE COLOURS.
It was a simple matter of Googling some free adult-level colouring pages, printing a stack, and gathering all the markers, pencil crayons, and crayons I could handle. I found plenty of places to print the colouring pages but a couple of my favourites are Doodle Art Alley and Patterns for Colouring.
So if you’re feeling as frustrated as I am with this lack of springtime sun, do yourself a favour and take those colours into your own hands. You won’t regret it.
