The Benjamin Button watercolor

This is the story of a watercolor that was born old and grew younger and younger as time (and attempts) went.

Esta é a história de uma aguarela que nasceu velha e rejuvenescia com o passar do tempo (e das tentativas).

She started out her life as a commission for a couple of friends that were going to get married in the church that she portrayed. Adult – apparently – mature, finished and ready to go.

Começou a vida como uma encomenda para um casal de amigos que se iam casar na igreja que retratava. Adulta – aparentemente – matura, acabada e pronta para partir.Then, she went through a phase, where she was trying to accept her shapes.

Depois passou por uma fase em que tentava aceitar as suas formas.And find a better way to control but also to express her colors, by balancing the right emotions with the right reasons.

E tentou encontrar uma forma de melhor controlar, mas também expressar as suas cores, equilibrando na dose certa as suas emoções e as suas razões.She got younger still, while she was trying to put together her elements.

Ficou ainda mais jovem, enquanto tentava juntar os seus elementos.

Finally, she went back to the origins, into the sketchbook, where she should have been born.

Finalmente, voltou para as origens, para o caderno, onde ela deveria ter nascido.
