A Late Valentine’s Day Post

With March fast approaching, I’ve been terribly busy and stressed out this February completing paintings for the upcoming 2 exhibits and handling mask orders. That said, I shall be posting my drawings for the 365 Women Project in digest form to catch up. To start off the month of love, there was no better subject to draw than one half of the tragic love-stricken couple of fair Verona, Juliet Capulet. I chose to draw her not in the typical balcony scene, but with Romeo’s dagger plunged deep into her heart after discovering he had poisoned himself, thus, following him into death. This post was originally intended for Valentine’s Day, but hey, better late than nothing at all.

Day 28: Romeo's Dagger. "O happy dagger! This is thy sheath; there rust, and let me die."

Day 29: Thumbelina. A play on red and turquoise.

Day 30: Infestation. I remember being sick and waiting in line at the hospital the day I worked on this.

Day 31: Blue Hawaii. A tropical cocktail drink personified, complete with a headdress made of anthuriums, birds of paradise, and heliconias.

This afternoon, I shall be participating at this year’s Art in the Park as an exhibitor at Art Informal‘s booth. In a nutshell, this annual event organized by the Museum Foundation of the Philippines is an affordable art fair where paintings, photos, prints, and sculptures are made available at Php30,000 and below. The event will run from 2 PM up to 12 MN at the Jaime Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati.

I invite you to drop by at Art Informal’s booth, Paper Works, at L4 (near the playground). Three of my watercolor paintings will be exhibited there and they are, of course, up for sale. Posted below is the location map for your reference.

So if not for support for the local art community, come and visit for affordable art, great food, wine, and jazz music. I do hope the overcast skies clear up. There’s much to be experienced in this much-awaited art fair!
