Field of Love

Field of Love

Rice fields are everywhere in the Philippines, and just gazing at them soothes the Filipino’s very soul. Rice’s white purity cleanses their soul, Rice’s daily sustenance gives them life, Rice’s core value simply represents Love! To the painter this field of rice represents that Love: Love that touches a Filipino’s heart and soul, A common love that binds them as if each was a grain of rice in the field, And most importantly; Love for a very special woman: The love for a Nanay so pure that she exemplifies the soul cleansing essence of a rice field, The love of a woman that,...

Walnut

  Walnuts are hard and not easy to crack, They seem cold and uninviting but they carry a scrumptious and nutritious gift inside them.

Twilight Full of Life

RAP Full of Life

I met him in the twilight of his life, A darkish time full of turmoil, anguish, and constant change, A time most people start seeking retirement and peace… But also a time full of colours even amidst the impending night! He was all things to me: Dark, Colourful, Vibrant, Mysterious, Kind, Distant, Close, and at times; as open as if I was his confessor, Always caring— This painting captures all that he was and all that he will forever be for me! Richard will always be a marvel, and vibrant, and colourful to me, Even when dealing with the dark tones...

From generosity a Water Lily was spontaneously generated, to show with its beauty, the appreciation in the heart of the painter. Its pink symbolizing the gentle femininity of its inspiration that balanced the painter’s world, The sprawling pedals representing the expansive size of her pure heart, The green aura of leaves representing the great kindness that charitably...
