Color Outside the Lines

First, I am not an artist! I’m not even really a connoisseur of art, but I do like to visit museums and depending on the exhibit, either stroll or run through! My most recent excursion was last December, to the Chihuly Garden & Glass exhibit, in Seattle. Wow! Color, imagination, a fantasy world of texture and light…astonishing. To see a local Chihuly piece, take a cave tour at Pine Ridge Vineyards.

Another local place to bring out your inner artist is Nimbus Arts. On your next visit to the Valley, see if you can plan a trip around their annual fundraiser, Nimbash. This is an event where you can meet and experience the artwork of some of Napa Valley’s finest. My short list of local artists includes Melissa Garden Streblow, Briana Clark-Forgie, and Alex Dunn.

All these inspiring artists brings me to an unexpected discovery into the world of adult coloring books! I was the winner of our family Easter quiz and the recipient of my first adult coloring book. The book sat on my desk, at home, for a few weeks, and then one mid-week evening I stole a glance at the cover and the bright pack of colored pencils. Why not, I thought!
Adult coloring is everything that the pundits claim it to be: relaxing, mesmerizing, engaging and most of all, amusing! I actually found myself thinking about color, patterns, repetition and perspective on what the final page would reveal. I would become fixed on a small section of the image and then realize that there was a bigger view…how did the small area fit into the final design?

I now color a few hours per week…often with my favorite Spotify play list and a glass of wine. It’s fun and the best part, at this age, it is totally permitted to color outside of the lines!
