What effect did your coloring sessions have on you?

I was skeptical at first, but I can definitely see why people enjoy coloring.  When I was in the thick of it, my mind was solely focused on the colors, patterns, and staying in the lines.  It can’t help but distract you from the stresses of life because you have to be so focused on what is right in front of you.

Anything it made you think about?

Given that I was coloring as I was overcoming a sports injury, my initial thoughts were simply taken off my lack of mobility and onto the coloring page.  After a week of focusing on the negative, it was good to simply focus on coloring and creating.

Any rhyme or reason behind your color choices?

I wanted to keep a soft and approachable color palette for the squirrel while also bringing out the elegance of its fur patterns.

Thanks for sharing Mike!
