This is my entry for the 4x4Friday challenge where the theme is Mantra. This digital collage represents my own personal mantra of "stay grounded"; being firmly rooted and yet able to branch out and sway with the inevitable storms that life hits you with. The background of this piece is from a personal photo I took in the city of some very dense and enchanting trees (themselves rooted around concrete yet reaching higher and around power poles)! The image is from Dover. Artistic gradient filters added in Photoshop.
