Behind-the-scenes.. Parang sampung painting

Hindi pa rin tapos ang entry ko sa competition dito sa Rizal, wooooh ang dami pang kailangan gawin na details.

Habang binabasa ko ang mga bagay bagay tungkol kay Botong Francisco ay napag-alaman ko na ka birthday ko pala sya, feeling ko tuloy ay kailangan ko pang galingan , hehehe.

Si Botong po ang center ng painting ko bilang idolo ng Rizal sa larangan ng sining, di pa ako decided kung gagawin ko ba siyang colored or sephia na lang.??? Ingat po tayong lahat.

Raffle Time! Art and Abe Flower Totes

Kasama sa practice ko ang pagpinta sa tote bags na bigay ng mga pamangkin kong si Aei at hipag na Ate Alice. Para pampaiba, nagpa-raffle kami sa Facebook Page namin nung June.

Congratulations sa mga winners (1, 2, 3)! Sana nagustuhan niyo! Puro sunflower ang pinili nila ?

Available ang bag na ito kung gusto niyo rin πŸ™‚ Contact niyo lang kami sa Page.

Whang Od Painting β€” International Day of Indigenous Peoples

Here are Whang Od’s portraits created by Abe for his personal collection: using his colorful surreal modern art style, another in sepia, another in close up portraiture.

On August 9, the world celebrates International Day of Indigenous Peoples. Whang Od, the last living mambabatok, belongs to the Butbut culture group from Buscalan, Kalinga.

May indigenous peoples of the Philippines and the world be included in the socio-economic system and enjoy the benefits of a new social contract where they will not be left behind, as advocated by the United Nations.

Kasama ng mga kapwa finalist na tagagawa at tumatangkilik ng sining, ,sa aming Zoom Awarding ceremony noong June 25, 2021.

Eto ang naging kapalaran ng mga naipinta ko..

Contest entry #1 β€” Non Representational Category

“Panganib”

Kakaiba ang proceso ng painting na ito. Hindi ko na pinlano, diretso lang nagpinta ng kung ano ang maisipan..

My first abstract painting.

Finished artwork, “Panganib”

… at ang resulta..!

“Panganib”

? Honorable Mention ?

2021 GSIS Art Competition, Non-Representational Category

? WINNER!!!!!!!!!

Ninerbyos ako. Akala ko di na ako matatawag.

Salamat sa GSIS.
Salamat sa Diyos ? sa talento.
Salamat sa inyong lahat ? !

Contest entry #2 β€” Representational Art

“Abot Kamay”

Sa totoo lang mataas ang expectation ko sa painting na ito.

This is my entry to the GSIS art competition’s representational category, pero di nakapasok sa finals?

Another lesson learned.

Yung unang una ko pang abstract painting pa ang nakapasok at nag “Honorable Mention”, like what Ate Alice said this is a new realization for me. Di mo talaga masasabi ang outcome.

Maraming salamat sa lahat ng bumati??? Ang dami kong natutunan sa kompetisyon na ito.

Sali lang ng sali para mapalawak pa ang karanasan at kaalaman sa sining???

Golden Gate Bridge

First multi-panel canvas art. A big challenge to my creativity and patience.

“The 1.7-mile-long Golden Gate Bridge, an icon of the San Francisco Bay region, connects the city of San Francisco to Marin County, California. At its completion in 1937, the suspension bridge was considered an engineering marvelβ€”the longest main suspension bridge span in the world (until 1964).”
