Children grow up so fast. I know – when they’re whiny and all, you can’t wait for them to grow up so you can talk sense into them. But when you step back and watch them, engrossed in their own world of wonder, you gasp and wish you could tell time to slow…
Children grow up so fast. I know - when they're whiny and all, you can't wait for them to grow up so you can talk sense into them. But when you step back and watch them, engrossed in their own world of wonder, you gasp and wish you could tell time to slow down. You want to hold them and listen to their laughter forever.

This is a second painting of Bastian taken from one photo. The challenge this painting gave was that half of the face was dark and in shadows. Yes, I still need practise but I think this is better than the first one [below]. This was the first one painted…

Rappler was able to take a beautiful picture of Pope Francis during that rainy Sunday before his last mass at Luneta. I wanted to see if I could capture the happiness of the photo. It was an image I wanted to remember.

Yes! Finally I’ve created 50 portraits. I hope to finish all 100 portraits by February so I can move on to other subjects – like urban and landscape painting or water. :)

I know one of these days I will need to learn how to do landscapes. In fact I might need to do it as I finish my 100 portraits.

I've never met her in person. Often times we'd leave comments on a common friend's post until our posts would regularly appear on each other's feeds. What I do know is that she's a photographer and a very good one at that. She was wondering what to give her mom for her birthday, when one of my paintings appeared on her feed. So that's how she got the idea of getting me to paint her mom's portrait.

Yes, painting is a practise in patience. I don't know how a painting will turn out until the very last touch-up. Which is why the results often surprises me.
Yes, painting is a practise in patience. I don't know how a painting will turn out until the very last touch-up. Which is why the results often surprise me. I bought 100 sheets of 390 gsm paper for practise. Watercolor paper is expensive so I scouted around for alternatives.

How do you paint a white cat? Until I actually get to learn how to do it (aside from merely painting the fur 50 shades of gray :D ), I will try to find creative ways of depicting them in pet portraits. For this I decided to just concentrate on the…
How do you paint a white cat? Until I actually get to learn how to do it (aside from merely painting the fur 50 shades of gray :D ), I will try to find creative ways of depicting them in pet portraits. For this I decided to just concentrate on the features and the dark area of the photo.

After almost 3 weeks of doing online work, am finally happy to be able to hold the brush and paint again. I need more practise in doing children. I find children difficult to paint because they have less curves, corners and wrinkles – features that give people their own 'character'.

“Please paint this for me.” Marianne said with that smile. How can I say no to the woman who I looked up to as a mother for more than 20 years? She sent me a thumbnail of this child bathing in a bucketful of water, her face lit up with joy. I searched for…

Introduction
People have asked me what do I do? I tell them I am an artist. My medium has changed throughout the years. I've picked up the mouse and wacom pen after I've discarded my charcoal pencils. Using the computer I've created 3D animation, ads, audio-visual presentations, graphic novels, print ads, marketing collaterals and websites.

For a time, my mind got tired of the technology and my hands turned to wireworks. I created wire-wrapped jewelry for a year to soothe the stress brought by keeping up with the times. Now I turn to another medium. Words. The human mind is my paint and my blog is my canvas.

I shall take it to where I need to go...where I need to be, then I shall move on.
