Reminds me alot of home... parang may sunog

Very good!

I really enjoy this scene. You're very good at painting the feeling of the place you're painting. I feel as though I am walking behind these people, feeling how warm and peaceful it is. To me art isn't all about it being technically perfect but the feeling it gives the viewers. Great job and congratulations on it going to the frontpage! I also hope you won the contest with this entry :)

Thanks for the lovely comment Giselle!

Unfortunately, i didnt won the contest...Oh well, there is still next year anyways..heheh


10! you is a great artist.


ill be honest...when I first looked at this I thought it was a wave...not a bunch of clouds. Kiiiinda made feel bad...its beautiful work. but I definitely see waves not clouds mostly because of the green hue in there below the crest of the wave where the sky above is blue and doesn't really have any green in it, or at least not to the same magnitude as what I perceive as the wave.

Though all in all, it is quite beautiful. Kudos and great job!

einharjar responds:

thanks for the comment man...to be honest also, i still have alot of difficulty painting clouds...its just there is always this feeling whenever i paint clouds that theres is something wrong with it..haha..

I should practice 100x to get that right ingredient...haha

I like this very much

I was recently in the Philippines (Palawan) doing volunteer teacher work for my step-mother (filipina) and your painting makes me homesick. Yes during my experience there, I have considered the Philippines a second home for me. I love the community and the way things connect there. I miss it already and I'm only back in America since January 18th!

The scene in your painting is so very filipino, a sight seen every day from my office/bedroom window. I would often just sit and watch the people do their daily tasks. I felt good to be there and experiencing as I did.

I had some good memories made there. I will definitely return. I have many friends on many islands whom I wish to visit.

Maybe this time I will actually learn Tagalog! haha!

Full points my filipino friend! 5/5 10/10

einharjar responds:

Thank you very much for the comment sir. Yeah, you should learn tagalog sir once you come back here. :)
