“Walang Hanggang Pag-ibig”
pencil and acrylic on canvas
8”x10”
 
“When that final moment does come, let not my loved ones grieve for long. Let them comfort each other. And let them know how much happiness they brought into my life. Let them pray for me, as I will continue to pray for them, hoping that they will always pray for each other.” “Let them know that they made possible whatever good I offered to our world. And let them realize that our separation is just for a short while as we prepare for our reunion in eternity.”
(Excerpts taken from the poem Prayer for a Happy Death by Cory Aquino)

My painting for Relevant Rizal, the third annual outdoor banner project by Canvas.
Ang Pagpupulong (The Assembly)
Pencil and acrylic on wood.
"While Rizal’s works sparked motivation and prompted reforms in the most simple yet powerful manner, I do hope that we also become real agents, more than just participants or "slacktivists," of social causes in the age of sophisticated forms of social media."
