I have a friend who creates wonderful worlds in her imagination and makes surrealistic oil and watercolor paintings of them. There are fantasy creatures, magic, illusions and magnificent ancient buildings, and lots of small details to interpret. My friend's paintings are like dreams one sees at night. To capture a dream... it was always what I wanted to do myself and wasn't able to.
I've been a reader of Lubov's blog for a long time. I love her paintings, her bizarre worlds, her captured dreams. And it was very sad to see such a talented person depressed and lacking faith in herself. She thought nobody needed her art, nobody cared for it, nobody wanted it. Then I came with an idea to upload scans of her paintings to Dreamstime, so they can be bought and travel all over the world, and bring joy to many people. She agreed.
And here she is as a new Dreamstime contributor. Her portfolio has just 67 pictures and 3 sales for now, there are more scans yet to come, but the beginning is good. Lubov's little daughter is also participating in her project: some of the child's paintings have been approved too.
I wish all the best luck to my friend and look forward seeing her dreams come true :)
