In an effort to connect with others during this time of 'social distancing' - I offered a challenge via social media.
"I HAVE A CHALLENGE FOR YOU:
I created the picture below using clipart (royalty free clipart) and that’s because I have zero ability to draw.
Challenge: If you have the talent to draw and you think you can create a better picture than I did - I challenge you to do so. If you send me a VERY CLEAN jpg of your drawing, I will offer it as a free printable download so others can enjoy bringing it to life with color. #quarantinegift
NOTE: The drawing must be yours. Draw anything you want - just keep it black and white so others can color it. And keep it clean people... 😂
I am desperately trying to get my step father Dave Iannuzzi to draw for me but it’s becoming quite the effort to keep begging. So I am reaching out to all ya’ll for help so I can continue giving away my free printables while we’re all stuck inside.
No stamped images are allowed because they are all copyrighted by the company who made the stamp. 😮
Message me if you want to take on the challenge!"
Guess what??? One of my awesome friends from Connecticut - messaged me with an AWESOME picture that she would like to contribute to my continued efforts to offer free coloring printables! I am so excited that someone wants to take part with me!
Lena (Olena Zabolotska) is an amazingly talented artist. She is one of those beautiful humans from the inside out, who can create art out of anything at all. When we were neighbors, she collected rocks from our beach and made adorable figurine animals from the rocks. She also painted a wood sailboat scene on driftwood and gave it to us as a going away gift. It still sits on our mantle today. Anyway, this wonderfully talented woman thinks the idea of sharing something that might help someone else - is a good idea. She is offering her first piece of art here, for you to download for free.
Thank you LENA!!!
