IF; Reverse

.


Technique: water colors with adjustments in Photoshop and wallpaperclip from a web-site


This week's topic is "Reverse" suggested by Simonette (http://blogsimonette.blogspot.com/).

"Boredom is just the reverse side of fascination: both depend on being outside rather than inside a situation, and one leads to the other." ~Arthur  Schopenhauer

Isn't it fascinating to be forever young? To reverse old age? Wonderful - and expensive, facial creams promise eternal youth ... is it really true? No!!!
Do we really want to look more and more younger? Or is it the advertising that creates the need (in due to earn even more money)?
We like to live long, but not getting older. That is a self-contradictory!

  6. Interesting concept and great illustration. I was also thinking of how mirrors reverse images so it's very appropriate in your illustration.
    I also love the quote from Schopenauer.
