Sometimes Mommy is the one that needs a time out.
So I made a coloring book for frazzled moms. Whether you have another job or are at home with your kids, being a parent is not for wimps. Art therapy can help you relax by going into a trance-like state, focusing only on the project in front of you. I certainly found that when I started making this coloring book- I hadn’t drawn so much in years, and I found it fun, even exciting, to create these designs for people to color.
Some of the designs are wishful thinking, like a sleep wand, a hammock in the woods, a sunny beach or a clutter-cleaning robot. Some of the designs are abstract.
I, being a librarian, started studying different types of patterns, artists and cultural designs. I got out a book about art deco artist Alphonse Mucha , went back to one of my favorite artists, Escher, and created a tessellation of socks, researched rangoli and henna patterns, and pulled out books about zentangles. MOMMY COLORING TIME is available at Amazon.
