#RWA17, Are we adulting here?

Something new at RWA this year was the adult coloring wall.

Yeah…I know.

But…. it was really cool. I took some pictures of the images on day one and then tried to remember every day to take more to show you the progress. Had I been able to access good internet service in the hotel ( bah humbug!) I would have been able to update these pictures daily instead of shooting them all to you in one quick shot. Anyway…enough complaining.

So here’s day one, then day 4:


Now, please remember, these were up on a wall, mural sized. Getting to the top of the picture required a ladder!

This one never got finished.. .I don’t know why not. It’s a great Beverly Jenkins cover!

here are a few more:

I was surprised they didn’t all get finished. I will admit one thing, though, it was a great stress reducer! Every day I stopped by and filled in a few more colors on all of them and I actually went away feeling lighter. That whole adult coloring craze has boomed, I think, by now, but still, this was a cute idea. It’ll be fun to see what the RWA board comes up with for Denver.

  2. I colored some of that! It was fun. Being my first conference, I had no idea it was new.

    Our annual summer vacation plans almost always coincide with RWA, so I’ve never been able to attend. The first year I joined, before I’d been published, it was just down the road in Washington DC, and I was free, but didn’t go. I felt like a fraud, even considering going, since I hadn’t been published. I really regret that decision now!
    The coloring looks fun. I love the whole adult coloring book trend. I find it to be really relaxing––a great way to decompress at the end of the day.
    Thanks for sharing these pics, Peggy!

  4. Wow, what a great idea! Yep, I’d spent more time coloring than I should have. I join you in wondering what they’ll come up with in Denver! I get to go to that one. So excited! I know, I know, its a year away, but still…. It’ll be my first! LOL Thanks for a fun look for those of us who couldn’t make it.

    I colored and loved they put these up for fun doodling. I think they were a tad high and saw someone standing on a chair!

  8. So great to meet you Peggy! I couldn’t reach the higher levels of the picture and didn’t trust myself to clamber onto the chair in heels….I loved the covers though. Loved the conference too!
