This is the portrait of Filip, the nephew of mine, dressed in Harry Potter' uniform. The first sketches/drawings and photos of him were made while he was only five years old, fascinated by Rowling' story, still dreaming to be invited to and to become one of the Hogwart's magicians, but yet fearing it would never come true. For years, bearing in my mind the mix of desire, doubt and disillusionment struggling on his face (-where is my letter from Hogwart?), I was not able to find the accurate expression and might not finish that promised him long ago painting - until now, when he is eighteen, near adult man studying at the Bedfordshire College in Dunstable. I hope he still believes that a life could be as well a fairy tale as a reality, bringing and fulfilling the given promises.
