You’d have to be living under a rock not to hear how popular coloring books for adults are becoming. This phenomenon is becoming all the rage with adults of all walks of life, not just artists and creative individuals. So, when I saw that Boothbay Region Art Foundation was jumping on the bandwagon my first thought was, “I wonder why they didn’t do this sooner?” Here is their original call for artists back in May:
When I read additional posts on their Facebook page, I realized exactly why they hadn’t done this sooner – the release of the coloring book was set to happen in conjunction with their 50th anniversary celebration. Not only would there be a sneak peek of the coloring book at this event, but they also had art (of course!), food, and live music! (This event was held on July 3rd.)

I was going to contribute pages to this coloring book, but decided against doing so at the last minute. I’ve been toying with the idea of creating my own line of coloring books for adults for about two or three years now, but I can’t quite bring myself to just DO THIS. I don’t know why.
I’ll get over this hump of self-doubt and inner-critic’ness and get over myself . . . and get these coloring books for adults released! In the meantime, I hope you’ll check out this compilation from the artists at Boothbay Region Art Foundation!
