Ludmilla Marchenkov

Ludmilla. The first time that Vladimir brought his wife to a dinner party at our home, I thought I would have some fun. I had never met her nor seen a photo of her; but the day before they came, I painted a sketch of how I imagined Ludmilla would have looked twenty years earlier when Vladimir first met her. When I showed it to them, they were surprised (maybe even shocked) and so was I. It was that close.
