The other day I was sitting watching T.V. with my boys. Jon, my almost three year old who loves to draw and colour, grabbed a piece of paper and crayons and said, “Colour!” as he shoved them onto my lap. After my initial shock at being so forcefully demanded to colour, I did.
Dominik, who usually has a hard time unglueing his eyes from the T.V., couldn’t take his eyes off of my swirls. He proceeded to get his note book , which is now his art book, and began to create his own swirls.
The three of us have found relaxation and inspiration with our simple pieces of art. I forget too quickly how calming colouring is. I must remember to thank Jon for being so demanding.
