The artwork in Savoring Life's Spiritual Moments is another example of the book's philosophy - transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Using a digital darkroom, Colleen took photographs of every day scenes and created unique pieces of art. This page shows the common images used to create the artwork used for the book cover and the chapter heading and how the images look after being transformed into magical mandalas.
