Pinoys are really overflowing with talents!
Art by : M. Baldemor
After our hearty lunch in Brothers Burgers and attending the 2PM mass at the Eucharistic Chapel in SM Megamall Atrium last Sunday, Tina, Gabby and I were amazed at this art exhibit in the Atrium lobby. Even as young as his age, we’re glad Gabby has began his exposure to various art appreciation.
I may not be a professional artist but I know my eyes and my personal preference when it comes to visual art. As you can view in my photos, there are no ordinary masterpieces of brush and canvass but painstakingly done stitch by stitch!
Do you know how to X-stitch ? It’s not surprising that I don’t ! LOL! :D Well, I did it once for a project during my Elementary years without a pattern or anything; it was just types of stitches handsewn on pieces of cheese cloth and glued on bondpaper and compiled on a folder –That’s it, pass your paper! :D LOL. And as early as then, I knew it’s really more appropriate for girls and I don’t have that much needed patience and eye-hand-coordination to finish a square-inch moreso a frame! So I really have high respect for talent and perserverance for the craft.
The exhibit was part of the DMC-thread ARTIST IN YOU CROSS-STITCH COMPETITION. And if I am to judge the entries, I would have easily give the prime award to the masterpiece above (by M.Baldemor).
Runner-up in my list is…
SPRING GARDEN by Nora V. Eugenio. Wonderful, isn’t it?
It’s just my humble opinion, you know (a la pacman, lol). Each frame has a distinct beauty! But with due respect to whoever sat as official judge/s; here are the winners…
