“Geometric Drawings 2”
Beautiful geometries for a full coloring immersion! This book is guaranteed to bring you many hours of coloring entertainment with classic geometry, grids, and abstract designs. Illustrations are suitable for all levels of skill. This book contains 30 original illustrations printed on the front pages only, and a bonus design is included at the end of the book. You will want to keep coloring more!
A long over-due update was needed. I had projects in between my coloring book progress and I had to put a momentary stop to the book. I have left this blog abandoned almost for a month!
Plans for the third book…must finish it this month because I have been taking it too long! Things should be more paced out after this Friday. Let me share a picture with you of my computer work area at home:
The watercolors fun area is in another room…
Next, just for fun and the love of coloring… I am sharing some coloring examples from Geometric Drawings 1 and 2 from social media. Coloring was done by friends, received emails and me. Let me know if you like them and find them inspiring!
To purchase a book, visit my Amazon Author Page. You’ll discover that the books are published in English, in Italian and Spanish. I do not think I will continue publishing in Italian…

Must say goodbye for today, time is here for a coffee and to keep creating some more!
It is a great experience for me to share bits of my progresses and share with you what is going on around here.
My coming book, filled with whimsy flowers, lovely wreaths, swirls and patterns, is in the process of making! So excited about this one. Time for something new beyond geometric patterns.
Still working hard to make it as exciting yet a mindfulness experience for coloring.
Next, I share a coloring page I did lately:
Last week I purchased a box of Colorè color pencils, I have seen them around and decided to try them. They are creamy, blend well, have good pigmentation, these are a great and affordable purchase for anyone who loves to color. I would say they are almost as my eternal Prismacolors. The price tag on Prismacolors is just a few digits above the Colorè pencils.
Started coloring a new design:
This coloring page is all about self expression, letting your moods express with the colors and putting it down on paper. A great exercise to free the mind from the daily cares!
I invite you to visit my Amazon page and get one of my Geometric Patterns coloring books. Geometric Drawings 2 is selling four times more than the first one, and I am glad for this. It means I have done a better job designing something people like and find meaningful. Thank you all of you who have purchased one of my books!
Finally, a new work area and new desks are available to me. I was in so much need of these and they come just in time! So thankful! We got some second hand furniture in excellent conditions and right on time. So thankful and grateful!
It has been a lot of walking uphill, but it is wonderful when work pays off and the results are visible. I have many projects in hand including a third book coming soon and drawings, sketches, colors, paints are all over the place. Now finally I have a place where I can stay more organized.
I already said it: third book is on the way! This time there will be no more geometric patterns. Big change instead, I am getting inspired by what is all around me, countryside and nature. My coming book includes as many whimsy flowers as possible. Simple, lovely whimsy flowers. Fun to color and would make a great gift for anyone, as well as a great gift to receive.
Coloring is recommended for people that need to relax, it helps against high stress levels, helps in the healing of strong emotions, distracting you while freeing the mind. Coloring relaxes the muscles, because I have forgotten about back pain while coloring! Accompany this with some good music. You don’t need fancy equipment, maybe just a fancy coffee.
This was on my desk the other day: espresso coffee, homemade butter cookies and grapes from our vineyards. Grapes should be ready to be harvested in the next couple of weeks. The sweet grapes are a variety called “Angela”. It produces very sweet table grapes that are delicious!
You can find my books in English, Spanish and Italian on Amazon worldwide.
In this post, I am sharing some finished coloring pages from both of my books of Geometric Drawings 1 & 2. Something beautiful about geometries is that interpretation is individual and possibilities for mindfulness coloring are endless.
Some people call it color therapy, art therapy, antistress therapy, but when we do things with our hands, we release the talents within us, giving us a sense of freedom. Just like when God created man with His Hands, when we create something with our hands, we get in touch with our Creator.
To play with color is so stimulating to our senses. Many out there have become so insensitive that no longer react to human situations. We are humans, nature is our companion, life is beautiful as it is. Also, life is harsh as it was in the 1450’s, in 1790’s and today. Just different challenges.
Do what you love, color your life with beautiful moments, add sparkles and smiles to the people around you. It will pay off for good!
We are created to create, color and be stimulated. Create with your hands the things that you love: create music, create art, create watercolors, create with markers, create to give life to beautiful positive things. Create things for your family, your children, your neighbors. Make and give love gifts.
It will always pay off. Sooner or later, it always pays to use your creative talents.
Having fun is necessary, makes the good times memorable, makes the hard times easier to ride. During the hard times, frowns collect and hopelessness seems to win the battle. This is the time to take out our weapons of fun.
Anything works, from putting on a silly old apron in the kitchen, to doing the funny dance, to making a silly faces competition. This is our best weapon against life struggles, having fun while riding through the storms.
“Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun.” Randy Pausch
“Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.” Nina Dobrev
“I think that success is having fun.” Bruno Mars
“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.” Dale Carnegie
Having fun is a matter of attitude. No matter how twisted things are, choose to have fun. Have your smiles and good attitude stand firm under all circumstances.
Love and smiles are healing for the body and the soul. Love completes the heart and a smile seals the pact. Smiling makes your life sweeter and sweetens the life of those around you. Smiling is contagious! Smiling makes us more human and aware of other people’s needs. Smiling together will make long lasting friendships.
“Do an act of kindness. Help one person SMILE“
“You haven’t lost your smile at all, it’s right under your nose. You just forgot it was there.”
“A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.” » Phyllis Diller
“Smile. Have you ever noticed how easily puppies make human friends? Yet all they do is wag their tails and fall over.” » Walter Anderson
Hope this post has brought a smile to your day! Help someone today have a smile.
This is a short post, about finding time for tranquility and making a moment for yourself.
We are so busy that it is not possible to keep up with everything. The most important being in your world is you. A pyramid of people and responsibilities hang from you. They depend on you, and you must stop and take care of yourself. The world will not crash if you take 5 minutes.
I know you have a busy schedule, but take a moment and don’t lose control of yourself. You are made beautifully to surf in this life. Listen to yourself, what is your body asking you for? Think about it for a moment.
Find a moment of tranquility each day, even a few minutes, you will see you will reap the rewards. Your creativity will flow like a river and your inner-you will thank you.
