Early morning dream

I often have very vivid and strange dreams with other-worldly sights, sounds, and feels, during which my brain seems to be in a very different mental status from being awake and capable of producing novel ideas. Which made me wonder if I have tapped only a small fraction of my mental power during consciousness.

This is a dream that I partially remembered right before waking up, and quickly drew/wrote down while it was quickly fading. I completed the paintings in the evening via iterative drawing for recall.
