Most of us like to dream about what we want to achieve or have in our life. When I was at University in Russia I had a good friend who was very attractive, popular with everyone and a very good student except for one thing. She often used to stare out of the window, dreaming about some far off land or some idealistic situation that she was creating in her minds eye. This vivid memory inspired me to paint a portrait of my friend and capture in her eyes that far off dreamy look full of hope and expectation. Unfortunately I later lost contact with her and never did find out if her dreams came true, I really hope they did !
