Two on the Canvas - Martín Gardella

Two bold drops of watercolour escaped the brush held high, colliding with the artist’s virgin fabric. As if by the art of magic, the violet stains acquired human form, one of a man similar to me, the other, of a women like the one of my dreams. The painter, seeing the figures silhouetted against the white background, drew between us a small, rose-coloured heart, turned off the atelier lights, and left us alone. One night was enough for us to complete the wonderful work of art, one which the painter himself would never have thought possible to depict.
