Make-a-wish rainbow flower

     I know that everyone would like to have a little magic in own life. If you have a flower that makes your wish come true, what will you do?
     When I met rare and amazingly shaped flower in the forest, I remembered a story from my childhood about Make-a-wish rainbow flower. The little girl was gifted the magic flower of seven rainbow-colored petals, tearing off which she could make any wish, and it immediately became a reality. She was so happy that she frivolously spent six wishes on various trifles, and only when the last one remained in her hands, the girl seriously thought about the right choice. Pasque-flower is protected by law so you can not pick it. Moreover, it seemed to me if I break this rule, the magic that envelops this flower will disappear. I had to shoot right in the forest, and I was able to touch each petal only at the post-processing stage. Every touch really felt like magic.
     «A flower is relatively small. Everyone has many associations with a flower - the idea of flowers… Still — in a way — nobody sees a flower — really — it is so small — we haven't time — and to see takes time… So I said to myself — I'll paint what I see — what the flower is to me but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it… » Inspired by the words of Georgia O'Keeffe, I decided to draw attention not only to the flower, but also to the problem of choice.
    We are faced with choices every day but only conscious decisions will invite a miracle into our life.
