Has it ever happened to you that you arranged and re-arranged your busy schedule to make a little bit of precious time to create, but when you actually sat down, you drew a blank? You felt blocked! Before you click away to look for inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram and lose yourself in that rabbit hole, TRY THIS:
Color for 10 minutes as focused creative warm-up to get into your creative groove.

Or, maybe when the stresses of the day weigh you down and you need to unwind… coloring is an almost meditative way to relax and find your center again.

You can print and reprint as many times as you want! You could print in various sizes too.

You would normally pay anywhere between $1.67 and $5 for a SINGLE printable coloring page on Etsy after scrolling for hours to find one you really like.

My goal is to make this easy and affordable for you.

Art on the go

I always take a few art supplies with me when I travel. Just a sketchbook, a few color pencils, a black pen, some sort of watercolor paints and a brush or two. I look for little pockets of time to draw or color something. Nothing elaborate, just a quick sketch of what’s in front of me or something I saw, snippets from magazines or a photo I took because it’s not always possible to sit down on the spot to draw. And some brush lettering. Here are a couple of quick watercolors from the cruise.

On the second night of our cruise, we sat down to figure out what shore excursions we could go on. That task usually is not easy because we have different interests. None of the kids are old enough to go on any excursion by themselves. Jia is too young for most things. If I could help it, I would just pitch an umbrella and sit with my sketchbook but that is not doable at the moment. So, we divide and rule. Ashis takes one, I take the other two. He keeps the younger two, while I take the oldest shopping and so on. Plus, Nini is getting into photography and we go on photo walks together.

Everything in Nassau was heavenly! This was my second time to the Bahamas. Nini went snorkeling with Ashis. We all went on the glass bottom boat to the reef and saw colorful fishes. We took in sights all around us on this sunny day on the island surrounded by turquoise waters. I loved this lighthouse. We shopped for jewelry. When we came back to the boat, we took quick showers, had some snacks and I settled down to paint the lighthouse before the daylight died down.
