Art Walk

Once again it is a good reminder to put this on the tablet of your heart to have as much friends as you can.... it's good to see Sir Pops once again...Omer,   has his vacation for awhile from abroad as a Seafarer , so we made some tour in and out to some of the art scenes in the Metro. With Marko..... and I had the chance to revisit Manila Art in SM Aura. Luckily I had the chance to have a photo opp with GMA 7 teen star Bianca Umali. 

Here we go, before we go to Taguig we ate some Japanese dish somewhere in Brgy. San Antonio, Makati near Pops place...which by the way he will vacate in a month's time. So he is planning an event on 4S headquarter one last time this October 23.

2nd time around, and the last day of Manila Art. 

Marko Bello's masterpiece...
And here are some of my choices once again...



"Just Add Water" at The Podium, Mandaluyong City.... 

Be Seen in The Art Scene


Tell them Planet Earth is 4.5 Billion years old and they will believe you. Tell them your painting is STILL WET and they will move closer to touch it just to be sure.

A VIP Night for Manila Art 2016

Where a struggling artist like me able to mingle with the Elite of the Philippine was indeed an experience and opportunity to know how things work inside the art scene...the deals... and meeting great artist or the who's who.

 and I thank Dr. Jocelyn for inviting me.

Art, The Language of Emotions

My mentor, Arnel Agawin....

You have to LEARN the language of Art...through your FEELINGS...not in words but by conversations of EMOTIONS. 
That's how I approach Art like a Living Soul....for truly Great emotions were POURED to create one. -- Fher Mission Ymas 

Waiting for that one Giant opportunity....The BIG break, so to speak! It could materialized any moment or expect something from a futile effort. I need a unified response to both situation. I have to recreate or create a thought patterns that wont leave me off guard. 
   I now move on my own extravagant vanities that may imperil my relationship with other people especially my family. 
   I'm getting older....
   I've poured too much emotions love and passions in my art, even prioritized it more than my love ones. I cried.... for my children.... hoping that my art could support them too. 

   Got my Ticket to Manila Art 2016.....Yessss!!!! Just being there, on this very Private event only for the elite, so they say.... I was invited by the way by Dr. Jocelyn Josefa is good to have connections and just being there on this prestigious event could boost the vanity meter. More so if I'm a participating artist...maybe next year. 

   Could have been the best President we never had....Meriam Defensor-Santiago. I like her no matter what they say. But it wasn't like that during the first time she ran for president. You just have to understand people to appreciate their worth. 

Visited Trans-Wing Gallery to watch fellow artist during their still-life sessions or just to be there and have an appearance in the art scenes.

Remember that, no matter where you go....
There you are! 

Which Denomination is Right?

LAST 10 minutes of your Life is

Whether you believe in God or not, All the things that will ENTER your mind during the LAST 10 minutes of your Life is the True meaning of Life. 

"Is there Life after death?"

"Have I given enough Love to everyone, especially my family?"
"Am I going to heaven?"
Because All of us, I believe will have DOUBT about the Life we HAD lived during those Last moment. Everything will be about the REAL things we CARE about....our SELF and those we LOVE.
Everything will be about Loving yourself and others....(even if you don't believe in God) because during that last 10 minutes you aren't even sure you will be Resurrected. 
Pause and Think on those for a moment.
That is exactly the Meaning of the 11th Commandment of Christ, . that WE SHOULD LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS HE HAS LOVE US. It was the most PERFECT DEPARTURE order from Jesus Himself before He was crucified. 
There will be NO room for your mind to think about Success and Failures.You will not think about your Religion or non-religion.You will Never Think about "How successful you are", "How many Goals have you reach"... Those Last Moment will be about Loving fact, God's judgment will not even require you to believe in Him during that final moment....
All He will ask (condemnation that will occur during death)...The one question is "How was your RELATIONSHIP with others?" 
By the way, those were the questioned that I have in mind during my Near-Death Experiences.....Glory to God.

I can not just Fade into Nothing

I will continue....for what? Strange isn't it that I was somehow popular among artisan but virtually unknown in the art scene? It was probably my ranting and real talk....beside being truly talented. Without malice I can truly say that I am a raw talent....that has evolve in a very short span of time. 
   Filled with so many expectations....enormous amount of faith without a single drop of doubt but then I'm still a failure. 
   Today I've felt really consumed...all the vices that had crept in my systems are paying off....and slowly I can feel my decay....the pain and symptoms are becoming more intensified. 
   As much as I am developing to a true Sensei which upgraded in terms of visual impact, I can not create with ease anymore....since I'm already experiencing various signs of mismanaged aging. 
   Not now because it is too soon  to leave my children....I can not leave them without the assurance that they will survive. 
   The end of the World is already here...the process is already functioning.... 

   Elijah want to pursue College.....and I feel incompetent, coward, irresponsible, and selfish for not being able to provide very swiftly....again, if only those bad luck didn't come so very often as it if heaven has shut its door for me. "You can not be too happy in this life"
   Zander by the way, told me that he is now working as construction worker. 
Even small tourney were obviously I've done better piece and yet it was beaten by lesser rendition. Now you know you can not be a rebel....
   I can not connect my thought...I'm dizzy and tired and yet must reserve my energy for another event tomorrow in Lipa City.
   God give me strength and enlightenment...always need your support. Send me league of Angels to minister to me. 
   I must continue the mission... as I was thinking now of removing that Mission on my middle name.

Just Trying....

A popular nobody in an ocean of pageantry and vanities. I've been knocking...trying so very hard I can't finish the fight. I feel so low....

When in Baguio

I have to spend this much needed relaxation to refocus my visions about life....seems I'm draining my despite the expected budget which didn't materialized I still pursue this trip to Baguio City  even though I have to stretch my wallet....
The trip was worth it. I was able to see a different angle into where I am right now as an artist. The acceptance was far more important...that I am still virtually trying...struggling....known by some....respected perhaps....and seeing vanities. 
The wasted years...and those things that I didn't tried...
It was all enjoy the moment perhaps....and back to acceptance....
I saw that I have to re-invent style...and perhaps even my values....
Everything is possible....even failure. 
But I have a dream....or a ordination. Since birth I had been weave for these. Am I just concocting my prophetic status....Ah No, I've come to the point of wisdom where I no longer need anything materials as top priority. 

So what about this Baguio exhibit at Forest Lodge which will last until January next year....the longest exhibition of my work in a classy hotel will  determine if I am really worth acquiring.... my works can't easily be classified. 

And here are those first presentations...studded with controversy....and why lady luck isn't my best friend...I actually didn't stare long was hang at unit A of Fred's Service Apartment in Baguio now which was formerly stocked in Fred's Cabanatuan..... 


I'll be uploading more pictures here....
