An Exhibit: Karayom Masterpieces at iba pa . . .

Hi, everyone!

I'm glad to be sharing today news of the upcoming gallery exhibit of various Amorsolo paintings reproduced into crossstitch masterpieces for everyone.  Not only Amorsolo masterpieces but also Baldemor paintings into crossstitch masterpieces.

The exhibit opens on November 5, 2014
at LRI Plaza, Makati City

An Invitation:


As I visited Dreams, Makati City in Glorietta 5.
I saw Amorsolo and Baldemor crossstitch pieces all ready in black frame setting.  I was in awe of the huge masterpieces in front of me.  I was literally gaping at the 2 pieces:  the Fernando Amorsolo's Countryside in Oil in crossstitch reproduction and Manuel Baldemor's Good Harvest.  

To add to the eye candy was a masterpiece Hardanger of an Advent Calendar done in Christmas tree form how we used to love our Advent Calendars in papercrafting in Christmas trees.

I was silently and intently looking at each of the 3 works and couldn't help but marvel at such work and craftiness of the finish and presentation.

I could only guess how the presentors at the Karayom Masterpieces will mesmerize the patrons of Amorsolo and Baldemor works and needlecrafters in the country.

I felt my life as an accountant and as an auditor or the remaining lifeblood breathing accounting terms and concepts and accountancy frameworks was suddenly dead.

I'm all out for the Arts and Crafts Sector now, still keeping in mind that I'll still try to continue to do my personal accounting of my personal expenses and savings.  That is now what will be left of what I am as an accounting professional.

A full-time hobbyist turned artist.  I'm spreading my wings again to indulge not on papercraft arts or other more craft art, digital art and now to add needlecraft art aside from canvas art.

I ask for guidance in this heartfelt decision.  The accountant in me still resides but no special feeling to my profession is felt by me anymore.  The happiness with numbers, the love for accounting terms and concepts is now diminished.

I hope I can still be all of what I was but then change is always inevitable as a Mood is always temporary.

Sharing now a movie of my project with 3 Certificates tucked in for me to work with and more with Amorsolo and Baldemor works.  I guess to add to these will be Creo by Lady Katutz works in crossstitch patterns.

Wish me good luck and happiness . . .
