Colouring books helped me a month ago. I only have one, it was bought for my mother but I ended up using it. This is from Johanna Basford's Enchanted Garden. They took a while to do but I'm happy with how they all turned out..

Spirit Tree

Oh wow, such talent.

I'm glad you have a good coping mechanism.





I put it down on paper and then the ghost does not ache so much.

I forgot to ask, what do you use to take your photos?

Thank you for your kind words one_step_closer and nonperson! It's appreciated.

nonperson- I use a little compact digital camera with a zoom. It's a Canon SX720 HS. I remember buying it in a sale. I'm used to using Digital SLRs and an old film SLR but I gave mine away years ago. I have many pictures from the past on the computer. It's really the editing that's bringing the pictures 'out' with the composition. The original pictures are quite dull to me.

I have a digital SLR that I've not used for years and used to do quite a lot of photo editing. I agree that it definitely brings the pictures out!

Digital SLRs are a lot of fun . I need a manual function on my camera otherwise I'm not happy.

This is what I consider grounded psychedelia (without drugs). I like breath and creative flow so I thought I'd share some of my work that's expressed death or recovering my mind from the abuse I've gone through. I won't share what each one means but I am expressing something about my environment which was outdoors a lot. I had trouble staying inside. This is only part of what I want to share but I don't want to clutter the thread too much at the moment.

Thanks for the comments. Here are some designs from last year. They all come under the 'temple music' category. I don't know how these happened but they just did.
