Description

Everyone loves butterflies, blooming flowers, and mandalas, and this coloring book for adults (big kids at heart, or even younger colorist) combines the delight of fancifully sketched butterflies, hovering over or around their favorite flowers, and framed in simple to intricate mandalas. This combination provides a delightful challenge for those who have grown to love the newest trending hobby of coloring other artist's line drawings. Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple Zentangles that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations. Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The page of mandalas and Zentangle-inspired art allows relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind. There is no judgment here. Have fun. Use the baseline designs and sketches to play and have fun. If there are blank spaces, along the borders or inside the design, add your own lines and patterns.

About Dawn D Boyer Ph D

Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D. has been drawing since she was five years old, and would color her father's office stationery with crayons to create colored paper for art projects. She received her first acrylic paint set in 1973 (a $25.00 kit was a lot of money back then!) and promptly drove her art teacher crazy finishing class projects in hours versus days. She attended Virginia Commonwealth University's, Bachelor of Art Program, and then re-engaged later at Radford University, earning her BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration.

Over the years she has developed a distinctive style for her pen and ink illustrations of old barns and houses, as well as Colonial Williamsburg architectural portraiture. She currently works in mixed-media from recycled magazines to create 3-D images of stylistic animals and mandalas, using childhood craft processes (bubble-gum chains, paper footballs, and quilling techniques) to create sophisticated paper baskets 'crocheted' woven together in a non-traditional way. She is the author of 80+ books on the topics of business, career search practices, mandala books for hypnotherapy and meditation, coloring books for adults, women and gender studies, and quotes for self-improvement ("2,000+" & "3,000+" series), as well as genealogy and family lineage.
