The beauty of having the Coloring Pages is that you can take them out of their book and give them as a gift.
Then there is the case of my wonderful daughter, who took the book I gave her as a gift and had her friends color pages to relieve the stress of their midterms (as well as to create a wonderful Birthday Gift for her Mom!).
Today I want to take you on the journey of the creative process that evolved into The Doors of Marfa, TX: Coloring Pages.
Joseph and I were in Marfa, TX.
We began to sketch the door across the street from our rental home. On returning home, I saw a series in these sketches, inked them in and began to create finished drawings such as this one.
After finishing the works on paper and I was starting the painting series, Joseph and I thought that these images would make a great coloring book. So we began to curate a selection and vectorize the drawings.
The wonderful surprise I received for my birthday was the coloring of the entire book by Veronica and her friends. They told me what a great stress relief it was to take time out during midterms to put color to paper. I was so touched that they went to such trouble to be so creative. I am just loving the results. Thanks wonderful young people.
Here are 2 examples of the same door #33……I am always blown away by the myriad interpretations…..
