Back Home Again

It is such a joy to be back in my home art studio/office. We ended our trucking travels on January 10th.  The last 16 months have been yet another great adventure for my hubby and me, and a lot of fun and hard work. Time for this girl to enjoy her kitchen again and especially her own bathroom. I thank God for the angels that watched over us while we were out on that road 24/7 and for all the friends and family that faithfully prayed for us.  While on the road, I was able to finish some more designs for the next coloring book I will be getting published, hopefully by this summer.  This is the Flower Power book, subtitled, "A Grown Up Flowery Coloring Experience".  I am really excited about getting this one done.  There is such a learning curve in the process of making these coloring books, so it is challenging at times.  The process is what I truly love and of course enjoying the end result isn't too bad either.  My new , and I must say, most favorite medium for coloring is gel pens.   I love gel pens!!  The metallic ones and the regular Paper Mate Ink Joy brand are the ones that give me the best results. Most of my finished coloring pages are now multi media pieces.  I really enjoy using acrylic paints, gel pens and markers on one piece.  Using finished coloring pages for collage, and crafting is also taking up a lot of my attention these days.
