Indeed, the first exhibit in San Fernando, Pampanga Philippines are exhausting but inspiring.
Few weeks later, John Vallejera (friend and partner in Hong Kong Christian Mission) encouraged me to make a portrait painting of JAIME JORGE (a renown international christian violinist in Christian Circle). I haven’t seen him personally though. Thank you for the provision of his personal website I was able to meet him :). Hoping thay my brushes and oil paint would be able to catch his features 99.9%.
He (Jaime Jorge) surprised us for a wonderful concert experience.
In honor to God and acknowledgement of JJ’s service, John and I presented the painting to him. His jaw dropped and couldn’t say a word for about a minute. Then, he approached me and said; it’s just really me and thank you very much! I (Jaime Jorge) am so overwhelmed and I would never forget this day.
For me, all my hopes were answered.
Then, I approached the crowd presented the 4 paintings available. The two paintings are masterpieces by Dong Eludo with titles; ‘Family’ and ‘Street Basketball’ (Acrylic based medium). The other two were my works, namely; ‘No Una Simple Memoria’ (NOT A SIMPLE MEMORY) and ‘Gone with the Wind’ (both Acrylic and Oil medium Mixed). Only 1 painting left (the ‘Family’). Ms. Mariles adopted the ‘Gone with the Wind’ and the ‘Street Basketball.’ ‘No Una Simple Memoria’ went for the keeping of Rev. Doyle Moore. As I always committed, 50% of the proceeds were directed to Refuge Baptist Church Hong Kong in support for their mission program. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam.
