Cactus Resilience Quote Coloring Page for Adults

This month’s adult coloring page theme is “cactus.” I was on an airplane headed to Chicago and had some time to spare, so I was sketching out some ideas. I don’t know if it was the high altitude or the solitude without the kids, but it got me thinking…getting in touch with my philosophical side you could say…cacti are quite resilient, aren’t they?

Put a cactus in the desert. It never knows when it’ll get watered. There isn’t much around to keep it company. Sometimes it can get really, really hot and just terrible drought conditions…yet it adapts to the environment, works through it, and keeps on growing. It protects itself with needles and decorates itself occasionally with flowers. Resilient through Life’s struggles.

We should consider the cactus and work through the tough situations Life throws our way, doing our best to prepare ourselves for trying times then adapt and come out stronger.

Now, this doesn’t mean we need to be strong and that we won’t struggle during the hard times, but it does mean that we will work to grow from it.

 


 

When I made our Succulent Fairy Garden, I learned that succulents and cacti aren’t ready right away to deal with water shortages. This is something they have to work up to once they are established. So don’t be discouraged if you don’t “feel” resilient. Just keep on. As a military spouse, I don’t feel very resilient with everything thrown my way, but in hind sight I have learned so much and it has better prepared me for future things that will come my way.

I admit, I’m not the best at watercolor. I’m still practicing (this is my second real try.). This just seemed like this image was an adult coloring page that needed to be painted with watercolor (of course it doesn’t, but in my head I pictured it watercolor painted.).

I started with watercolor paints then once they were finished I added more color with watercolor pencils. I used some water, let it dry, then added some more and left it pencil lines. I used a thin permanent chalk marker for the patterns/needles as the paint color had gotten on them and I wanted them white. Since the paint blurred some of the lines, I went back over it with a thin black marker.
