Psychedelic Cactus

What is this, exactly? It’s a collection of images taken from a children’s colouring book, which I coloured recently, using wax crayons. Why do such a thing? Why publish them on a web site?

Colouring is a nice activity; a pleasant way to pass the time with your spouse. It’s a calm activity. Conversation isn’t required, but often comes and goes in a relaxed manner. It takes about an hour to colour one of these images. This book of images, purchased in a five-and-dime store in Killybegs, Ireland, has 97 line drawings (one per page), to colour. I’ve coloured 69. A few were coloured by someone else, so I didn’t include those here, and a few I didn’t want to colour.
