We recently held our fourth annual adult coloring contest and the response was overwhelming! We received many colorful entries from readers all along the North Shore who used many different types of medium including colored pencils and markers to create their masterpieces.
Susan Saviano of Selden and Beverly Gross of St. James added glitter to the butterfly wings and flower petals, Richard Melidosian used acrylic paints, Kristin Lubliner of Mount Sinai used glitter pens for her creation and Jean Fleischer of Coram had so much fun she submitted two entries!
At 98 years young, Loretta Fafard of Port Jefferson and Dorothy Forbes of Northport did a beautiful job. Forbes’ daughter writes, “My mother worked for hours on this despite the arthritis in her hands. She loves the butterflies and flowers in the sketch. This was the perfect selection for her. Thank you for making those hours so enjoyable for her.”
Although it was extremely difficult to choose a winner as every entry was unique in its own way, the judges ultimately chose the coloring page by Bobbie Johnson of Stony Brook who edged out the competition with her incredible shading techniques. Bobbie receives a three-year subscription to any one of our six papers, courtesy of Times Beacon Record News Media.
And surprise, all other entries will receive a one-year subscription as a thank you for entering our contest. Congratulations to all!
