Description

Evelina's drawings and paintings are said to be intriguing and different.

People who see them cannot understand how she creates all that out of the blue. Although creativity exists in everybody, there are still people who usually claim they cannot draw a line to do any drawing. But this book shows us the journey towards that and how hard it is to bring out images we have in our unconscious mind, projecting them into works of art, plus the efforts to produce. Evelina always wanted to go abroad and study in Europe but could only do that after being married and having children somehow later in life than anticipated.

Initially, she worked as a biochemist at a Brazilian university for about 20 years, then there was an opportunity for her to study for a PhD abroad, as she always wanted. This was the pivot of all changes in her life, which culminated with her divorce, remarriage, change of profession, studying for a BA in Arts and adopting a new approach to life altogether. As she wished to create a different work - innovative, reflecting her personality, a unique work - she embarked on a process of creativity and development, a complete approach to life, for example, through hard work with drawings, which this book is about. Associated with that, the reader will get enthralled with descriptions of life in Brazil, some socio-economic aspects of the author's life since early ages from rich surroundings while with her father's family, in contrast with her mother's poverty-stricken family way of living as a widow with five children. After reading this book, one will reflect on how life depends on opportunity and the efforts to make the best of that. We can always change life if and when we want to. That is why the title of this book is 'Chance of a Lifetime', because it comes and goes; when it happens, one has to grab it, making the best possible.
