A Letter from France Embassy

There we're mixes of emotions when I open the inbox of my email. The loading time was teasingly very slow. To expect too much could be very disappointing and yet I hope beyond hoping. A prestigious show like this is that one big break I've been looking for....    After I've sent that email Sept 26 with my entry I have various images floating on my brain. What if it was rejected.... no answer means nothing. It could make or break you. 
   The first thing I've check on the net was that result when Sept 29 came. I was breaking between jubilation and tears. The heading was enough to make me jump for joy. 
Congratulations Mr. Ymas! The Embassy of France to the Philippines in partnership with the Alumna of AIM Managing the Arts 7 would like to invite you to exhibit your work: Aftermath, The Unheard Notices in the climate change themed show entitled “Map for Climate”. The exhibition will run from Oct. 5-10, 2015 with an artist reception on Oct. 6th at 6pm.
   I was so over-excit…

Could be the Road to Europe



I re-collect moment and not just images. The usual randomness and sporadic thoughts which spontaneously occur on my mind.  

Into Charcoal

I was commissioned to remake this photo (below) into a new painting.... and for two days now I'm still staring at it.....

The drawing skills of Zander is improving.... 
Late bloomer as an artist, Elijah is still very much focus on Anime and Manga stuff.... but I was surprise he can play some fabulous chords on his guitar. 
and as usual Elyona's surreal abstraction or whatever....

Honing my charcoal lately.....

4 Years of 4S


Focus Whatever The Causes and Results

The sidewalk artist that went viral around two months ago had her solo exhibit at A Space Manila gallery in Greenbelt Makati. Her name is Jhalanie Matuan, an Ilongga...and speaking of someone from Bacolod, I've finally met the one I called as my Mother (nanay) in Art, Joan Honoridez there at the above said exhibition. 

   Signs of aging, too early cause i really didn't caution myself, I thought I would be different...and now the realization* once again that I'm just as normal as anybody else. 
   Finally able to play Tanki again, a relief since I can't see No purpose on the daily routine despite being Liked, well love and respected....My mind is fragmented and feeling dizzy most of the time...literally. 
   Elijah is now getting the hand of his guitar; he can now play some tunes. Zander is taking his drawing seriously... and quite improving too. 

   It's good to have a purpose driven life....but not all purpose end in success. Setting up goals and plans are good but it…

A New Blog for My Art

Some people think life is unfair....well maybe....for the time being. 
I may not continue the Art in focus blog since I've already started a new blog Title: Fher Ymas Art Archives, there you will see my finish art pieces for my possible collectors to browse. 

My internet connection isn't cooperating again so I wasn't able to give updates here, as well as the New title I'm working with. Would probably be updating you next time....

Sir Armar resigned his administrative position is 4S. But he still will remain a member. Why? I almost knew the answer... 
and as for me I am seeing the Realization  that, like Master JJ all must come to its acceptance. The limelight has faded. Although I'm barely just starting a life, I knew this will be all worth the try.
