My mother watched me work on this painting and fell in love with it. I let her name it, and l adore the title, which comes from the 'One Thousand and One Nights' (aka 'Arabian Nights'). A 'dream of Alnaschar' is a wish that you desire, but in all likelihood will never be fulfilled, or what is today called 'a pipedream'.
