This piece of clip-art is one of the free samples I received by subscribing to Dover Press, one of my favorite online resources. I tweaked it a bit to make it feel more my own, but the drawing is from Dover. If you like it---and seriously, who wouldn't?---why not subscribe yourself? You get not only clip-art like the bunnies to the left, but marvelous outline designs (Celtic knots, mandals, famous paintings, famous characters from history) designed for coloring. If you're looking for something creative and different for your artistic child to color, you COULD NOT DO BETTER.
I've loved Dover press ever since I discovered them back in the Seventies and spent a whole happy week painting medieaval woodcuts with water colors to send as Christmas cards. Later, I enlarged some of them on a xerox machine and made them into "stained glass" designs. In my darkest hours, Dover coloring books and a set of 64 excellent color pencils have helped me get through to the next thing.
Is it wrong that I like this collage enough to post it? I didn't want to post it in the digital clip art gallery because it's not clip art and I want to reserve all rights (meaning, please don't use or copy it without permission).
Why did I make it? Just because. I really enjoyed the process and it took quite a long time to assemble, since all the pieces had to be individually created and pasted together over time. This is another one for my mom. I love Paintshop Pro. All those art lessons my parents paid for when I was a kid may not have exactly paid off in one sense, but I did learn to love abstract color and different textures.
