Over the past few weeks, I have learned that there is a new “Fad” going around that has started.  It’s Coloring.  It’s just like coloring in a coloring book that you used to do as a kid, but this time your using colored pencils, crayons, & water color.  There seems to be a whole lot of people out there doing this now, because it has taken the Country by storm.  It is being said that this thing is supposed to be relaxing, calming, and a exercise for your brain.  What you do is go out and buy a coloring book that has all kinds of different patterns to work with. They are all lined in the features of many different things for you to choose from.  The above Image shows you a coloring pencil kit that can be purchased, among many other types out on the market these day’s.


Here is just one of the many, many types of “figures” you can use that come in a book.  The book that I chose to work with is called “Jungle Flora”.  It has all kinds of different jungle patterns that you have to color in.  I chose the Great Horned Owl for a starter, because I enjoy seeing Owls and think that they are interesting.  There are so many different types.  I just started doing this a day or so ago, so I’m not all that far with it.  It takes a bit of patience to do this.  Choosing the right color and stay within the lines is as it used to be.  After I’m done, my Owl should look like what is below.  I hope!  Oh yes, there is one more thing.  Your not given a number to correspond with a color.  You have to use your imagination!


This is what I want to get as close to as possible.  The Great Horned Owl.  Is He not pretty or what?  So many colors.  Those eyes seem to look right thru you, don’t they?

Thanks for stopping by.

I am 75 yrs. young and now retired. I worked in the Machinist Trade for 24 yrs. Served in the US Navy with a Tour of Duty in Vietnam. Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
