The Calendar

Since my Mom passed away last September, I took to coloring to ease my sadness. I’ve found it to be very enjoyable and cathartic. As I sit there coloring, like I did in my youth, I think of Mom. As I mentioned in a previous post, she was the one who bought me my first box of 64 crayons, which I treasured. Sometimes she would take time to color with me. I cherish those memories.

Now I color using different media. Some are watercolor pencils, some are soft pigments, some are metallic and some are gel pens. I’m coloring a 2016 calendar now and have actually colored all the way through August. It’s actually quite addictive, but hey, I’ll take this addiction any day and I highly recommend it.

This image is of January. I call it the Koi Pond.

Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’

  1. Wow! Gina that is beautiful and topped by such a heartfelt memory of you and your Mom. I love it…
    Yes, it can be great therapy as Rose was doing a lot of coloring while she was in rehab for a couple months recovering from her fall.
    She even had an Art Show & the Nurses displayyed all her work in the lounge and patients were buying them. It was a fun event.


  2. How beautiful, fascinated me. But not only the painting, the thought behind this painting, you are so nice dear Regina, and I am sure, your mom smiles to you with a great proud of feelings. Thank you dear, Have a nice day, love, nia
