Capturing A Dream

My birthday 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.

Fortunately, Ruth accepted. 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. My dream, coupled with taking a chance, led me 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 is my reminder to reach beyond to a world full of endless possibilities.
