The people thought that in our house , theres only one artist and that is me , but the truth is , most of us likes arts, but most especially my brother Ed. I can say that he is more creative than me because everything that he can see is an art , for other people that is trash for him it is an art. He is the one next to me . Edwin or teacher Ed , was my male version , i don't know why we almost exactly the same , I'm the eldest and he is the second, sometimes he is more feminine than me and i am more masculine than he is. I am just one year older than him, and during high school and college wer like in the same circle of friends , I called him Kuya and he calls me Ate. When i go to theater club he also went to it ,he also loves writing and he also composing songs, he is good in playing guitar but me I'm really poor at it, he is just corny when it comes to love but I guess he is just so romantic. I taught Ed how to teach arts , so during the time I went for tv and movie production , he was the one who took over in my place. I gave him all my students and then he had his own way to teach the kids until he was the regular art teacher in Nestle Philippines - Lipa , you can also see his paintings there . He is also not so lucky in a relationship , his life is like a roller coaster. He has two daughter thats not with her , Keith is the eldest , she loves her Daddy and she also loves art . Ed is a loving person, but most in my life he really wants to spend it with his daughter but its just complicated, his youngest is Kim which he knows someday , he will be with or see and teach art too. He also loves to make my kids happy in the way he knows, like face painting . He is not just good in painting he is also creative in crafts like the dry roots , he will make it a decorations to the house, stones and i told you the trashes but he can make it a very nice souvenir, he also makes a dream catcher and he sells it here before . Now , my brother is in Samoa Islands and he took a risk and he is dreaming that someday he will have a name from his arts and dream catcher, maybe not here but in the other land . I miss you Kuya
Last February 2010, we had our on the spot painting contest and musical show in SM City Lipa in celebration of the arts month in cooperation with LAPIS (Lapian ng mga Alagad ng Sining )and sponsored by Aileen's Restaurant, Chelony's art Workshop and Tutorial Services , Larry K., Hit FM 101.5,SM CIty Lipa , RYMS Artists, Magical Placenta,AGAP Party List, WOW Batangas, Net Play Badminton and Ms Sylvia Dimaano .
This said Events was Participated by thirty six artists from Kinder-College.
It's really from the hard work of our artist Mr. Griego Vive and my cousin whose also an multi tasking artist which is Mr. Archie Baldorado. It's been a long preparation for us and its not a joke to have this kind of event from the props , set,artist ,host,participants,sponsors and staff, its really hard gather all. We started our preparation in SM Early in the Morning , at 8 AM , the participants are waiting outside , then we officially started at 10 am with our hosts Dj Joie ,Dj Polo and Dj Rick ROberts. The kids registered first and then they took paints courtesy of WELCOAT and MS. Sylvia, they got also the prepared illustration boards and they started with their sketches from the theme : A Decade of Hope , Love ,Peace and Unity , while the participants are painting we also prepared some intermission numbers from RYM's Artists. Aside from that we also posted some Long paintings on canvas from the Artists of Manila and Baguio, we also have Photo Op where you can take a picture like in an awards night, we also had a free face painting for the kids and adults . And the best part is the participation of the artist group which is LAPIS members such as Griego Vive , Alba Alvarez , Catherine Hipolito and Nelson Bosita. Ms Maricel " Chelony" Mercado , the organizer , owner of Chelony's Art Workshop and Tutorial Services and the only coordinator of OTSAA On The Spot Artists Association in Batangas, also the appointed president of LAPIS , introduced the Longest Painting which is now 5 Kms Long on canvas and done in Quezon City Philippines by thousands of artists, it was founded by Mr. Rollie De Leon of GMA 7,the said longest painting is now holding the record and it is the longest painting in the world. The Batanguenos are planning to make this 5 kms into 7,107 meters which is more than 7 kms and it is representing the Philippines for the 7,107 islands. Around 3 PM , the participants presented their works one by one and they explained to the judges why thats the outcome of their works. So Finally , the judges finalized the winners from each categories and followed by the awarding. One of our presentors are Larry Karangalan and the judges are Mr. Bernie Garduque of 101.5 Hit FM , Ms Jeannette Bella of Rossabella Flower Depot and Mr Elmer De Ocampo of Ms Sexy Advertising.
The Contest was also a success of CAWATS and LAPIS for it brought the people back the traditional arts . And for us , the most important is, the people would not forget the intelligence and the talent that god gave every artists.
Special Thanks to Teacher Brends, my sister Jen who is not in Samoa Islands,OJT Boys. to our Artists Greg and Archie, Ate Rhea , Joie and Polo , Lapis Artists , sponsors,my family and to all , without you this event will not be successful
I've met Ms Sexy in the radio station " Da Best 98.5 FM , but we are not close to each other ,I am listening to her program every night when i was in Tagaytay , but the station is located in Lipa City , I used to be a dj also in that station every Sunday at 3-6 PM . Well who is this Ms Sexy? She's the owner of Aileen's Restaurant in Marawoy Lipa City. One time , I dropped off from the jeefney and i suddenly felt hungry that time, then i ate in Aileen's Restaurant , that was my lunch but its already 3:00 PM. I decided to call my staff from the shop to have merienda . Then Joie, my previous marketing staff visited the office of Ms Sexy in that restaurant so we went together and finally Ive met her in person.
Ms. Sexy is really a sexy woman, not only that she possess beauty and similar with Jackie Lou Blanco , shes very accommodating and friendly , she treats us like a boss. I am really impressed about her attitude in spite of being well known in Lipa , shes very down to earth person. At that first meeting I really likes her, and so we talked about projects and so on. Then she has a launching and I offered to give her a pop art painting that was done by our artist in the shop " Chelony's Art Workshop and TutorialServices, Mr. Griego Vive , we also gave her a free face painting for the kids . I really love to support this kind of person and if she needs me , i will not refuse. By the way, she is also supporting my projects like what i did in SM Lipa, she gave us food for the participants. Anyway,when we gave her the Pop Art, she was really impressed and until now she put the painting in her office . I am just amazed by her attitude, not all the beautiful women , rich and famous have an attitude like her. I will always cherish the Moment that I've met Ms Sexy.
Last March , we participated in an art event in Taal Batangas, among LAPIS group , its only me , Griego Vive, Jeorge Banawa and Alva Alvarez were present in the said event.
Upon invitation of AAP Group , Kunts Gallery and Mr. George Banawa , we dont have any idea so we just brought our art materials and followed the flow .From our arrival , weve met a guy from the tourism office then followed by the presentation of the school band , a sign of the start of the event, then we saw the other group of artists came with their buddies. Most of then are from AAP . Afterwards , we enter in the principal's room and they introduced the "Suman" a sticky rice in the banana leaves. Then we have met Mr. Fidel, the AAP President and we proceeded to the children's room where they were waiting for us. Sir Fidel gave a pastel workshop to the kids and we just assisted them .I've met also sir Bill Perez who is connected with NCCA.
After we finshed the workshop we visited some historical places of Taal and they also served a great and delicious lunch.Then we proceed to our on the spot sketching and we all chose our own subjects til we went back to the school to see and judge the artworks of the kids. After we fished there, we went to the Mayor's house and they served Merienda to us. The lady mayor was really nice to us she have a huge house, we really enjoed the Puto at Dinuguan and the rest, then we got some small talks then we had to go back to our way home. It was a great experience again meeting other artists . they are really great and it seems that we knew each other for long time.
I guess soon Kuya george will have another event in Taal this coming month. Lets wait for that Artists.
