Tag Archive: The Escapist Coloring Club



Busy day. The muses have given me a workout. I’m not done even now. But I thought I should report how amazing these Muses are.

First of the day I sat an played a couple songs by ear on my soprano recorder  I did find  a wonderful webpage to help me until I can get a few books. From that website I learned to play Lightly Row. That was fun.

I ran to my piano and played Prelude.  Why yes, that is a sticker (just above the Allegro) that I tried to rip off the page as I am embarrassed that I learned to play this way back when I was a teen or less. Now at 71 that sticker makes me want to cry. I learned so much from Mrs. Skinner. The first teacher out of church that I knew most of my early life.

I found the playing fun and I got up immediately so that I could remember music as fun.

I went back to the recorder for one more play-through and then looked up YouTubes. I ran across Kalimba lessons.

Hey! I have a Kalimba! So now I am on a kick to learn Kalimba, too.

Why all this musical attentions? Mrs. Skinner. I remember when I hated piano. Never Mrs. Skinner. But she told me not to play the piano for a while. She gave me her ukulele to go home and play with. She had a tuning whistle and a book. When I got pretty good at that she made sure I had piano music for voice and let me learn to sing to my playing.

So I am playing with music again to start to love it. Again. And the recorder, I hope will increase my breath control.

Oh! I nearly forgot, I spent time on my next page on the Dragon Coloring Book.

Now to get back to what I haven’t finished for the night. My JuNoWriMo projects. So far I have (not counting todays) 827 words added to Pandamapocalypse and 3594 added to Marina’s Mission.

Now to get back to work as the story is coming around!

Escapist Coloring


I thought I already did a coloring for this month. But I don’t see it reflected on the coloring page so here goes another. Here is the picture before:

And here’s the finished product. I do love coloring. I’m always surprised at how much fun I have while doing it. I need to make it a habit!

Thank you, Linda G. Hill for the Escapist Coloring Club!

Late to the Party!


Sorry to be late to the party, Linda G. Hill. Busy month. But here’s my Coloring Escape Page:

I’m horrid at taking pictures. This is the least blurry of the three I took. I colored this while watching Kong: Skull Island.  I had to make my reptile look better than the beasts on that show! Dragons have pride, you know! (I’ll try to get to this fun earlier in the month next time.)


Happy Coloring Time Everyone!

This is the before.

The is after the fun.

I did this at the beginning of last month. I know I am going to spend some time tomorrow on another. I suddenly miss coloring, especially after all the moving stuff and knowing it still isn’t over. One afternoon should bring me back to zen.

Check out the others coloring with us at Linda G. Hill’s site. Join the fun of escaping!

Thank you, Linda G. Hill, for always being an inspiration!

So, a few years ago my daughter gave me a couple coloring books and color pencils.

 

I played in them off and on but only was this far last spring:

I didn’t like the pre-done bits in either picture like all the dark parts in the Mandala or all the scales and shading on the dragons but decided because Linda set us to task to get busy and try. I finished (I think) the dragons. There still may be things to do but here I am now.

Besides the mandala to finish, this is the next dragon:

This one looks like a lot more fun! What do others prefer to color with? I want to try pastels or actual crayons but feel I need to learn more about the pencils. Maybe I should wait for the next picture as this is on the back of that multi-dragon and maybe the wax of crayons will bleed through?
