Acrylic 8" x 10"

There always are wonderful vivid pictures when I am praying or right before I fall asleep. This flower is one of them. It was much more beautiful than I have painted. However, it was always changing so fast before I could catch the details of it. I spent the whole night trying to capture the beauty, and this is the closest I could get.

It was very difficult for me because I was not using any photos as reference, just kept closing my eyes praying but still, it changed so fast, I see different ones each time. I wish I could do a better job on this.
