Coloring pages…

I still love to color. A fresh box of crayons each September is a treat. My old broken ones are unwrapped, shoved into the oven on an old cookie sheet, to melt and be formed into new crayons.

Here are a few of my favorite coloring book webpages.

These should be enough to get you started doing a pasttime that you may have brushed aside.  While you are coloring the paintings of Goya, Cassatt, Monet, Renoir, perhaps pick up Wendy Beckett’s lovely books and her appreciation for art expressed so vividly.
