Thank You, Summer Foovay

October 31st, 2011

I would like to express my thanks to Summer Foovay and the many loyal visitors to her website. Summer has spent countless hours and her tireless labor has produced a site that averages more than 20,000 visitors monthly. When I approached her about purchasing her site, she actually was considering to stop publishing the website which would be a loss to the many fans of her drawings. After a number of days resolving technical issues, the site has finally transferred ownership, but as promised, I will not make any major changes to the site. As she has indicated, all those who have received permission to use her drawings can continue to do so without violating any copyright issues. Furthermore, I hope that she will stay connected to the site. I have left her blog account on-line and she is free to add blogs if she so desires. I also hope that she can continue to add more of her incredible drawings if her time allows. Lastly, for those if may have reciprocal link agreements with this site, please let me know. If I inadvertently remove such a link, please notify me so I can restore the change. Many thanks and kind regards to Summer and her many visitors to her site.

New Site Owner

Changed my mind

October 21st, 2011

After additional thought and consideration, as well as some research, I have decided not to sell the coloring pages website, Color-Your-Own.com. Because I have given permission to various individuals and charities, schools and other organizations to use different drawings over the years, I do not wish to cause a conflict of copyright for them. It would be better to remove the site altogether than to sell it and worry about causing problems for those I wanted to help.

This holiday season you will be seeing some new ads around the old place. Sure would help out if you would buy something you really want – and let me get a few pennies for all the coloring pages you have enjoyed here.

I am also considering creating some coloring and activity books to sell as well as possibly implementing some of the changes suggested in the wonderful site review by Education Site Review. I am also looking at actively making an effort to involve countries other than the United States, as I have so many visitors from other countries around the world. After all – coloring pages are pretty universal!

Unlike most of the coloring page sites on the Internet – I do not steal or copy licensed images from Disney, Pixar, or other movies, TV shows, cartoons, anime and so on. My coloring pages are hand drawn originals by me. I may suffer for it financially, but at least I can look myself in the face in the mirror. I do on rare occassions copy something I know is in the public domain (twice in 500 pages that I recall) – but it is a hand-drawn copy with alterations to make it easier to color and to put it into this format. My coloring pages are also mainly created for older kids and for adults who enjoy coloring or using the line art for crafts.

Starving artist – LOL – that’s me.

Despicable Me Coloring Pages

September 13th, 2011

Here is a fun list of coloring pages from the movie, Despicable Me I really loved that movie! I sure don’t know how it is okay for people to do coloring pages of these licensed characters – but I guess they know something I don’t! Power and success to them!

July 4th Independence Day Coloring Pages

June 21st, 2011

I hope everyone is having a very Merry Summer Solstice!

We moved earlier this month and I am just now getting my studio unpacked, arranged and organized – but isn’t it a beautiful space?

Here’s what it looks like now – stuffed full of …stuff.

This is my excuse for no new coloring pages for Independence Day, July 4th – LOL. Don’t forget there are already three July 4th coloring pages up, though:

I was very amused this week to note that the Foo Fighters Concert Rider included coloring pages! See, I told you adults like to color!

I’m still having a blast with my Kindle, making a lot of free book lists and working on some other projects on line. Most notably, I got my first novel The River Way, converted and available for sale now on Kindle for 99 cents.

Have a great summer!

New Coloring Page – Flying Pigeons

May 19th, 2011

Flying Pigeons Line Art By request, here are some Pigeons in flight Coloring Page – to go with all the pigeons just sitting around ;) . I know, I know, I said I wouldn’t take any more requests, but this one happened to come along on a day when I felt like drawing and had a bit of time, so here it is. You are welcome to send me requests, but I cannot promise I can get to them in a timely manner – or at all. I have other obligations and business interests – some that actually make me a bit of money, which the coloring pages website DOES NOT. What can I say?

Enjoy!

New Coloring Pages – Quolls!

April 21st, 2011

This is Q in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge

Up until today the Quoll was just another entry in the long list of animals you can have at SandboxFarm to me. Then I looked them up.

OMIGOD they are so cute they should be ILLEGAL. However, since they are also considered apex predators, and are relatives of the Tasmanian Devil I suspect they really hate it when people go – OMG CUUUUTE – and tend to bite. Below are the thumbnails of the two new Quoll coloring pages. For the purist, these are Tiger Quolls – identifiable by the spots on their tails.

As always click on the thumbnails or the links to go to the coloring pages.

New Coloring Page – Peregrine Falcon

April 20th, 2011

This is P in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge

I’m running a little late today – but we got here.  Fall and spring bring migrating Peregrine Falcons to the ranch out in the desert.  The ranch is home to a huge population of Eurasian Ring Necked Doves.  The falcons stop by and thin them out a bit twice a year!  Because of this I’ve had a couple of thrilling close encounters with these little speed demons – the last only a couple of weeks ago.  Their striped undersides are striking – and the last sight many a dove ever has. As always click on the thumbnail or the link below for the full size coloring page.

New Coloring Page – Ocelot

April 18th, 2011

The little Ocelot breaks every rule about the spotted wild cats I’ve been drawing lately.  They have solid spots – AND rosettes – AND some rosettes have dots in the center – AND to top it all off, their spots seem to neatly arrange themselves into, well, more or less stripes.  Ocelots are about the same size as a large housecat – and like our domestic cats they apparently do not think rules should apply to them ;)

This isn’t the only art I’ve done today, check out “Ocean on my Window” over at Foovay’s Cauldron.

If I keep going as I have been with one to four coloring pages today until the end of April, there is a very good possibility I’m going to have to change all my headings to say “Over FIVE HUNDRED original coloring pages”. Cool!

New Coloring Pages – Newfoundland (Newfie) Dog and Puppy Coloring Pages

April 17th, 2011

This is N in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge

I’ve spent much of today looking at wonderful photos of Newfoundland dogs and reading about the breed.  I was disappointed in that I couldn’t find a photo of them at work – or at least not a good enough photo to use for a reference of Newfies drawing a cart, or far more important, working as a SAR dog or even swimming.  The Newfoundland dog is most famous as a rescuer of drowning sailors – or anyone else who has a water mishap.  I’m enough of a perfectionist that I won’t work without some sort of reference, so I hope you are willing to settle for this standing Newfoundland dog, and one of the irresistible fuzzy Newfie puppies!
