The Pahiyas Festival is one of my favorite paintings from one of my favorite contemporary artists, Manuel Baldemor. It captures the Filipino 'sense of space' where all space is occupied with objects, as one might see in a Filipino house, w/c is the way Filipinos also relate with each other -- close connections --a sense of community and multitude. Also, the Filipino sense of vibrant colors as shown in photos of the actual fiesta (see my post "Pahiyas Festival" on this same board).
Happy Mother's Day! This brilliantly colored oil painting by Pelayo Lopez warmly shows the love of a mother for her child. Mr. Lopez hopes that the painting will convey his belief that in life, we should only require a few simple needs to be happy, and the most valuable possession of all is the love of our family Title: A Few Simple Things Artist: Pelayo Lopez, Philippinnes
