My last exhibition work for this year!

"Prosperidad" (Nagbabatak ng Buto)
24" x 24"
acrylic and drawing pencils, seeds on resin, on canvas

My work for Ang INK's 21st Annual Exhibit, Mabubulaklak na Dila  

The exhibit is our illustrative interpretation of Filipino idioms. When I was in grade school, it was hard for me to understand such expressions, not to mention searching them all to answer my homework. I'm glad that our group have come up to illustrate and help illuminate these expressions for kids today.

The idiom assigned to me is nagbabatak ng buto, which literally means "stretching bones/seeds." It really means working very hard to achieve something.

details of atsuete seeds (annato) on resin

adding first layer on figures

Initially, I wanted her hair red but later I realized she'll look too foreign for local kids.

I've added another layer of color to tone down the hair and make her look ambicultural.

more textures and layers of colors made with drawing pencils

finally affixing resins with acrylic medium
