Nice one! It has that Padre Salvi feel to it because he is the "chief injustice" but he has a crown with a cross on his forehead. It's like Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo or something. :)

uy pinoy ka din?

clever insight...i was trying to emulate the injustice of the catholics universally...and yes this has references on rizal's novels...i happen to be a huge fan of his work salamat...see my other works if you like

thank you my friend, hey you always adore my humble works...so thanks for all...btw it is really hard to paint using watercolors, it took me almost two years to have a hand at the medium, and i must say its even harder to do than in oils...

i also learned a lot from my friends here--->:iconnunwhorecommando: :iconanubis46: who are masters of the medium...

i like the spontaneity of the medium...
i was hoping this piece will sell also because im in great need of financial help right now after what happened to us in the flood...

glad you liked it

p.s.

if you are interested in this piece or to have this piece for you or for a friend of yours who could help me with this problem i had please do not hesitate to note me...its for a cheap price only but equal that of large help for my family

Wow ... it´s even better then all your collages and I love you collages ... you know that! ... you have so much potential to surprise me each day again ... speechless and thanks for the dedication my pope ... I´m not worthy ... (bowing down and adding some holy piss from the surreal light to mix with the sacred water!)

thank you my friend...i applaud your sacred offers...fyi..this piece was painted not on paper, but on specially treated aquabord, clay like material which is acid free...i got it as a gift last months ago from :iconpeggymintun:, it yields great results when used fantastically!!!

also i used holy water to dissolve the watercolors...the center here is painted also with gold acrylic but i think the scan didnt capture it...

anyways this is the sum of all the experiences i have learned in watercolors, but be sure to expect newer things my friend, i like to consider myself as not being satisfied with what i have already achieved, the imagination is unlimited so why should i limit myself from learning...life is a continuous sea and to navigate it is free...with you guys i learned a lot...thanks


your holiness

well in that case we all are children!!!
i remember Durer's history, he stated that no matter how great of technically powerful an artist is, he is never equal to any of nature's creations, his works no matter how great will never even approach the absolute beauty of the universe, the handiwork of God, and to be content is like stuffing oneself of glories and closing the doors for fresher newer things...it is both true in art and life...we need to open not only the eyes of imagination but also the body mind and spirit!!1this way a true revolution of humanity will take place

I hope this judge can do something against le creme de le cream, worldwide...polictics, priests, rich owners of media and production enterprises, all of them telling us what to buy, what to use, controlling our minds by the TV shit....or, is he part on the club?
