We are indeed IN! Coloring is FASHIONABLE! Hurray!

And NO…don’t worry…I don’t think that Coloring should replace Yoga. No way…! Nope. Rather combine it perhaps?! Do Yoga and then relax some more with fun coloring pages. Yeap…that sounds nice! 🙂

Some others enjoy the part that actually happens before…the doodeling…the creating of the coloring pages! And this is me… as much as I love coloring…I love drawing, sketching, creating these coloring pages even more!

So here with all my love and passion come two beautiful mermaid coloring pages to you to enjoy and relax from a long day.

While drawing I relax, I reflect on what happened during the day,…I let my thoughts flow, my mind starts to wander…and obviously depending on my experiences during the day my moods play a vital part in how the illustration turns out.
