CCA Virtual Coloring Book

If you have some crayons, markers, or colored pencils at home, it’s time to break them out! I’ve teamed up with CCA Alabama to create coloring pages made from some of my artwork and photographs taken in years past. Below you will find a Speckled trout, a Red Snapper, our local lighthouses, and a brown pelican from the Fairhope Pier that are ready to come alive with color. Feel free to share your work with me and send me your pictures at so we can show your work off on the Facebook Page. Be sure to check out the CCA Alabama Facebook page and see how to enter your colored pages to win a few prizes!
