Picture of the Day ~ 11.02.15

I had a lot of fun with this page.  You can probably tell that at first I tried to keep the animals colored the way they would be in real life.  Somewhere along the way, I threw caution to the wind and just made them whatever color I happened to like, which is actually a bit hard for me.  This one happened to be one of the colored examples in the book it is out of and they had all the animals colored bright, fun colors, so I decided it was "ok" to try.

This was done with a little bit of everything.  Markers, gel pens, sharpies, felt tip pens, just whatever I grabbed out of the marker tub :)

I'm kind of jealous. Your stuff always looks cool. My coloring is all over the place; it looks like I vomited random colors that don't go well together. I can't "match" colors, or my wardrobe, or really anything for that matter lol. Maybe I'll give the color-by-numbers a try but it just doesn't sound as fun.

Glad I'm not the only one! :)

I looked after (didn't babysit, as that's something I reckon you do for non relatives, and which you get paid for, Derick) my 2 yo (nearly 3 yo) and 9 mth old nieces today. The 2 yo wanted to do some drawing, so I got the pad and pencils out for her. She just scribbled - I'm sure my kids were drawing rudimentary people by now - but she did draw a pretty good circle and said it was the sun.  I offered to colour it for her, she agreed, and I did, but I have to admit I haven't the patience for more. Nor the skill, it was a pretty poor effort :(  yours are great though, I love today's one :)

Honestly, there is no WRONG way to color :)    Just do whatever feels right to you and it will be right!

I'm a bit crippled by the desire to keep things "realistic," but I'm trying to get over that.

I'd love to see what other people are coloring.   Please feel free to add your own pictures in the comments here or I could start a group blog and people that want to post their work or other coloring related posts can just let me know and I'll give you access to the blog so it's more of a community project than my personal blog.

I find that I gravitate to certain colors over and over. I do mandalas and knots for the most part.  And typically I manage to work my way through chakra colors.  I just go with it.

I use the same colors a lot, which you will probably start to notice as I post more pages.   I also just have certain pens/pencils that I love more than others so I use those a lot.

You really can't do anything wrong :)

Your 2 year old could draw people?! Dang! My two year old can scribble and that's it. He actually shows no interest in it though so he's only done it a handful of times.

By the  time she was nearly three she was drawing a rough circle with stick arms and legs, and dots for eyes.  I don't think this is indicative of artistic talent though, as at 19 she hasn't progressed much further ;) so don't worry, Clara!

      I read 'joyous lessons' as 'joylessness' first.

      I’m always fascinated when someone who was raised not religious & becomes extremely religious. I know 2 people who were raised not very religious Jewish & became very religious.

      I was raised atheist and became very religious in my teens. I was a deep thinking philosophical kid with big emotions, cracking under the pressure of adolescence in an extremely academic environment; Christianity offered me something to help answer the 'why' of it all (although even then, I always believed in the scientific account of the 'how'). I am also - although I didn't understand or have the label for it then - asexual, and the whole notion of no-sex-before-marriage was oddly reassuring to me, like a 'safe' way to date and fall in love with church boys who weren't supposed to want to touch me sexually (spoiler alert: they still did). While I was at university I worked for a Christian organisation and led the youth group at my church, then I got married and moved to a country town where I knew nobody, and the church community was my first 'in' into the community. I was a stay-at-home mother who spent my days going to church playgroup or hosting bible study with other stay-at-home mothers. Regardless of what's happening inside or what your private prayer life is like, when your social group is all religious it helps keep you religious. It's only in the past few years, with my kids all at school, my divorce finalised, working in secular arts organisations, plus time on more forums like this, that I've become a much more liberal Christian who doesn't let it dictate my entire life.

      Looks like that's the Justice Dept response to the Duggar appeal not the Supreme Court final.  Reddit was a bit ahead of themselves.

      Yeah, the conclusion states that writ SHOULD BE denied. This is the Fed's response to The Felons plea. Remember, they were granted an extension until 5/24, so this makes sense.
