Level $5 received Josephine (Only on Patreon)

Level $15+ received the entire packet of images above.

To Mend a Broken Heart – Colored by Desereé Cundiff


Color On! Featured Artist for June

If you haven’t already heard, I’m the featured artist for June in Color On! Magazine.  The ‘zine has 5 new and exclusive images available.

You can get this on Etsy and check out their website:  Color On! Magazine .
The cover was colored by Deirdre Gamill-Hock! It’s gorgeous!

This edition also has some great work from other awesome artists.

You can also see brand new, exclusive designs available on my Patreon page. This is the newest design available only to Patreon supporters (and that’s at the $2 level!)

Your support helps immensely! It’s usually going to go for art supplies, but this month it helped pay my unexpected vet bill for my Zoey baby.  Poor angel has asthma and it has been bad the last week or so. I don’t know the full extent yet as I wait on tests, but just today was over $315 and we have more to go on this road. Artist has to art, but also needs her best friend.

This cat is amazing and definitely my baby (at 9-years-old.)

New Project in Process

I’m working now on new content for my website.

I’m creating some artwork now that will only be offered through that venue over the coming months. Whatever I create and display there won’t be in book form until 2018 as an anthology of the year’s work. You don’t wait that long, do you?


Getting a Few Things Updated!

I’ve been working today to update my website. The Reviews page still needs updated, but I have reviews up on Youtube for some great coloring book titles.  You can check out my website here:

Shelah Dow Art

I also have been working away on dragons for the upcoming book, “Dragon Wings and Wild Things” due to release late March or early April 2017. I only have 5 more dragons to go. Can I get them done in time?  You betcha.

If you missed it, “Weirdlings and Wildlings Vol. 2” is now available.  To see some of what you’ll find in this book, check it out:

You can get this book as softcover on

Weirdlings and Wildlings Vol. 2 on Amazon!

or in digital download high-quality PDF version on Etsy.

Weirdlings and Wildlings Vol. 2 – Etsy Digital Download

Check that shop for a limited time special going on as well that bundles this book and the first fairy book together for $11. That’s a $5 discount off of buying them separately.




Freebie – Printable, Colorable Bookmarks

They are kaleidscopes! Floral and star designs on printable bookmarks and the newest design created today.  They are here for a limited time only then will retire. Head on over to Printables. Very high quality PDFs. Click on Printables above^April2016BookmarksPreview

So far, the book is doing very well also! We’ve been up and going for 2 weeks. The reviews are just starting to come in now.  If you’ve purchased, please definitely feel free to review.  If you’ve colored pages, I want to see them!


You can find it here on Amazon!

Fairies were temporarily stalled today to work on the bookmarks. They actually took a bit longer than I’d expected. Yesterday was dedicated to jewelry photography. About to start back in on “Find My Inner Peace” fairy for my next book.


Later today or tomorrow I’m swapping out my freebie printables on my site. They are limited time only when I post them. Please feel free to let others know that the two now “Elegance” and “Little Miss Muffet” are going away. It’s a great time to snag them before they are rotated for something new. Whatever comes next will be a surprise. It might be from my book, or it might be something entirely different.

I have tossed around the idea of showing some of the designs that weren’t published in the book, which allows them to only be available here for that short time frame (2 weeks) before new ones are displayed.  Keeping up with every 2 weeks does mean in the future I may repeat designs, but who wants to count on hoping for a repeat at some unnamed future date? Grab your free designs now to color and enjoy. If you liked them, please show. I’d love to see. My Facebook art page is a perfect place to share, just let me know in a comment here and I’ll look for it. You’ll be added to the coloring gallery.
