Coloring, according to a multiple of sources I’ve found, “generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.”
So, why should we stop coloring!?
Local artist, Jacqueline Myers-Cho has a coloring book just for you. Actually, she has two of them and as much as my own kids like coloring in them, they’re mine all mine.
Jacqueline is a phenomenal talent. (Visit her website HERE) You can’t help but see her unique style displayed for all to see on the last Friday of every month at Ladies Night out in Burbank. She is oftentimes starting a painting with a pencil on canvas in front of MindfulNest at the start and by the time the evening is over, you can clearly see where she’s going with it. She says it takes 3 months to complete a piece. When I asked her about any messages in her art, she said “I don’t know. Normally, I discover what it’s about when I’m in the middle..or even at the end.”
I have to admit, I’m also mesmerized by her style. Her characters are intriguing to me. So opposite of anything I would think of. I like that a lot.
And you know what else I like? The Adult Coloring Books she sells! She currently has two books out (Available on Amazon) And one available here! (She’s giving one away!)

And to get to color Jacqueline’s art, makes it a little sweeter.
So, there you have it. Adult coloring books by a very talented local artist. One of my favorites, actually.
To Enter: Leave a comment about a favorite memory of coloring. It can be from childhood or as an adult.For me? The smell of the crayons and discovering shading.
One winner will be chosen at random on Tuesday, August 18th. And when I say random, I mean, my 10 year old will draw a name out of a hat. :)
