Let There Be Peace on Earth

This painting was inspired by the song “One More Gift,” which I listen to every time I paint. The composer wrote this piece as a young boy as he was struggling with family problems. He once said, “Growing up in a broken family has become a very valuable ground to nurture my faith. It allowed my to find God even in the darkest moments of my life, or in the history of our people.” I see myself falling down like toy soldiers do in those moments when I try to prove myself right and the others wrong. Those instances I steel myself to be impenetrable are usually followed by attacks of raw weakness. So it is while painting. I always encounter the struggle and the forces of hard strokes, the bravura; but there are also the soft glazing of fine smudges. Every hard stance in life hides a corresponding tenderness. Let us listen to the tender laughter of children.

Pardon for the long absence. I guess by now, most of you already know that we got affected by the great Ondoy flood. As of this writing, our house is still a mess. I will try to make a separate post on that horrendous experience very soon. But first, let me thank all those who texted, YM-ed, called and e-mailed me to check on our status. All your concerns were so much appreciated. From the bottom of my heart… MARAMING MARAMING SALAMAT PO!🙂

Let us continue on praying that the country will be spared from similar disasters slash calamities in the future.

Be safe always and God bless us all!

    Kahit hindi na basahin ang anumang interpretasyon ni Joey Velasco dito ay kitang-kita na ang gustong ipahiwatig nito.

    Sa mga mata ng bata at sa mga bagay na nakapalibot sa kanya.

    —-

    Andaya. Bakit may handaan ba diyan sa inyo?

    that’s the main reason why i like joey velasco’s paintings a lot.

    walang handaan… sumugod lang sina hamster at mantsa sa haus namin kagabi. ayun, ipinagluto ko ng spaghetti😛

    Akala ko ikaw na yung nagsa2lita.si joey velasco pala.ang galing nya sa totoo lang at isa sya sa mga hinahangaan ko.

    Kalungkot naman at apekted din pala kau ni ondoy.akala ko ‘nanahimik ka lang ng ilang sandali o kayay sobrang busy’..yun pala…enwei, kakatuwa din at bumalik kana at ang maganda dun safe kayo.

    Me ganun pa palang kainan ng spag!waah dka man lang nag-aya.hehe

    ay oo nga pala, pareho kayong artists. well, magkaiba lang yung subjects nyo. joey dwells on spirituality and national issues while you promote our culture… pero pareho ang medium, through artwork. naks, i-compare daw kita ke joey velasco! pa-autograph naman jan, kuya eli! hehehe!

    well, i wanted to write about that sad experience at least right after the flood… kaso too much work at home. tapos back to work pa agad nung tuesday. well, the most important thing is that we are perfectly safe now. linis at pag-aayos na lang uli ng bahay ang problema.

    text sana kita kagabi eh… kaso baka naman di ka rin makapunta. hahahah!

      Ikumpara daw ba.sabagay diba sa stat analysis may tinatawag na “NOT SIGNIFICANTLY COMPARABLE”.wid ol caps at quote nd quote pa yan ha.

      Sayang sana nagtxt ka.di hiniram ko muna sana yong powers ni kapitan pinoy para mkalipad papunta sa spag.hehe

      yun ang mahalaga.safe kayo at sana nga dina maulit yong ganung bangungot.

      pareho kasi kayong artists eh. magkaiba lang ang theme. but both are equally valuable. naks! hehehe!

      ay oo nga noh, may powers pala si super pinoy. sayang, sana nga eh natext kita kagabi. hamo, next time, text agad kita.😛

      salamat sa concern, kuya eli. yan din ang panalangin ko… ang wag nang maulit ang di kanaisnais na karanasan na yun. eh teka, kumusta pala kayo nung Pepeng?

      Ok lang.hindi ganong apektado ni pepeng ang vizcaya.di naman ganun kalakas ang hangin.mga magsa2ka ang apektado d2 kc nalubog sa baha mga pananim nila.
      Northern isabela at cagayan ang grabe daw ang hangin.madaming lumipad na bubong at madami ding bahay ang lumubog.idagdag pa ang mga nasirang palayan.ganun pa man, madami parin ang dapat ipagpasalamat kase heto tau humihinga at buhay na buhay.hehe

    Nice Painting…

    Nagsimula na rin ako magpaint lately. I have finished 2 paintings na. yey.

    Glad you are safe. Others are not so lucky.

    Why are there disasters that take away lives of the innocent? Why cant they just take the lives of the evil ones?

    just thinking out loud. (well.. actually, it makes no noise except for the keyboard) =P

  19. October 7, 2009 1:05 pm

    sori to hear ….ok ka na?…..grabe talaga si ONDOY!….

    ….i am truly amazed of the painting…alam mo ba ang painting nya tungkol doon sa last supper ay nagustuhan ng isang italian friend ko at talagang bumili sya ng isa at gagamitin nya raw sa isang pagtitipon na pupuntahan nya….

  20. October 7, 2009 1:29 pm

  21. October 7, 2009 3:13 pm

    Glad to know you’re safe sis. all things work together for good.🙂

    Mga bata talaga ang pinakamagandang halimbawa ng peace, peace on earth, peace of mind.

    God bless you! *mwah*
