UPDATED, REVISED, and REFRESHED from previous version based on coloring reviews, ideas, and suggestions from readers and colorists!
This newer, updated version has crisper lines, bigger pictures in the pages (some of them 9" x 7.5"), and are a mid of hand-drawn doodles and manipulated images that have been kaleidoscoped into beautiful patterns or mandalas.
Attributes of the book:
* 60# soft cover paperback book paper weight
* non-perforated pages (you can use a razor to cut out of the book, if you wish)
* Single-sided pages so you don't have to worry about your coloring media bleeding through and ruining an image on the opposite side of the page
* Bonus coloring pages from the author's other coloring books in the back of this book
Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple Zen Doodles that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The page of mandalas and Zen Doodles that allow relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind.

About the Author
She received her first acrylic paint set in 1973 (a $25.00 kit was a lot of money back then!) and promptly drove her art teacher crazy finishing class projects in hours versus days. She attended Virginia Commonwealth University's Bachelor of Art Program, and then re-engaged later at Radford University where she earned her BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration. She later returned to Old Dominion University to earn her Masters Degree in Adult Education and attended Old Dominion University for her Doctorate of Philosophy in Education (STEMPS/OTS/T&D/HR).
Over the years she has developed a distinctive style for her pen and ink illustrations of old barns and houses, as well as Colonial Williamsburg architectural portraiture. She is currently working in mixed-media using recycled magazines to create 3-D images of stylistic animals and mandalas, as well as using childhood craft processes (bubble-gum chains, paper footballs, and quilling techniques) to create sophisticated paper baskets that are woven together in a non-traditional way.
She is the author of 64 books on the topics of business, career search practices, mandala books for hypnotherapy and meditation, coloring books for adults, women and gender studies, and quotes for self-improvement ("2,000+" & "3,000+" series), as well as genealogy and family lineage.
