For my last birthday, my gift to myself was commissioning an art piece based on one of my dreams. I never thought of doing so until I came across Ruth Krijah on Patreon. I had inerringly assumed something like this would be well beyond my reach. But her tagline – Creating portraits of dreams and wild women – resonated with me so I took a chance and contacted her any way.
Fortunately, Ruth accepted. Our communicating with a great deal of clarity allowed her to capture the vision from my dream perfectly. The colors, positioning, shading, my likeness are exactly what I saw. And my dream, coupled with taking a chance, led me around the world to a wild at heart sister in Austria whom I now call friend.
The finished work you see here is the result of our collaboration. It also reminds me to reach beyond to a world full of endless possibilities.
