Emerson’s Transparent Eyeball Coloring Page

Recently my wife, the Rev. Amy Freedman, asked me to make an easel pad sized version of the classic Ralph Waldo Emerson “Transparent Eyeball” illustration by Christopher Pearse Cranch (ca. 1836-1838).  She wanted the large version to use in a message for all ages at First Parish in Concord, MA.  Read Amy’s post about the message.

After making my large Sharpie version of this illustration, I scanned it using my iPhone’s Evernote App and later turned it into the following black and white coloring page.
