13 watercolorists. 14 exhibit days. 17 sold paintings (and counting πŸ˜‰). 72 bears. πŸ˜„ We made it! We started the year as a random group of  people who had few things in common except for a fierce love of watercolor, now we just closed our first successful group show. 😊 Unexpected friendships truly are the best. Cheers to us! It's bilao time! Lol 
What's with the bears? A portion of our sales went to the SM Bears of Joy Project. Half of the bears will be given to SM's chosen beneficiaries, and the other half we get to handover to our chosen local charity. ❀❀❀
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!!

Today was good ❀ I think it was just last Tuesday that the group decided to have this Watercolor Weekend event, so we would have some sort of activity during our Diri sa Amon exhibit. And a lot of our visitors were asking about watercolors so we thought we could create an afternoon dedicated to teaching demos! We decided to just wing it, thinking just a few people would show up. But man were we shocked to see the crowd! Haha  We had no mic, no screen, too few tables and chairs! We just made up for it with a LOT of enthusiasm and our eagerness to share what we know. ❀ It was cramped but everybody had a great time! By the end of the session everybody was talking to each other and the overall vibe was just chill. THIS is why we do this. For the sense of community watercolor brings. It's so nice meeting other watercolor junkies! We had no idea there are so many of us in our little city! πŸ˜‚ Hope to see more next time! Cheers! 🍻

Tomorrow is THE day. ❀ I've joined several group exhibits before but I have never been so invested- physically and emotionally like this. Truly a passion project- there's no other term more fitting. Maybe it's because the theme is dear to me, maybe it's because I've found my home in watercolors, and my place in my Tampisaw group.❀ Tomorrow I open with just three pieces but I poured my soul into each one ❀ Happy and thankful. πŸ™‡

Our art tambays have come to fruition! We're finally having our first group exhibit. Diri sa Amon is a showcase of everything we love about our hometown of Negros. We unveil our works on Nov. 5 (Cinco de Noviembre, of course!). Show will run until the 19th at the 2nd level of SM City Bacolod. πŸ˜„ Our exhibit is endorsed by no less than IWS Philippines and PWG (International Watercolor Society and Phil Watercolor Guild). How crazy is that?! 😱 Dream come true, definitely! Thank you Lord!

Rushing River. 
Moving water is hard to paint. πŸ˜₯
I shall practice more streams, rivers and ponds before I even attempt a waterfall. πŸ˜… Hope your weekend is as peaceful as this river. ❀

Batis. ❀ I imagined of the sound of trinkling water, rustling leaves and distant bird calls when I painted this. 😒❀ I need to get out of the city to recharge soon!

There's something so serene about tree-lined pathways. 😍 It's as if walking it is meditative. Wish we had these here in Bacolod. πŸ˜”

Mish-mash of what I've painted lately. πŸ˜…πŸ˜’ I have this habit of painting random, nonsensical stuff right before a big project (exhibit first week of November, yikess!) I think I may have been subconsciously stalling working on my exhibit pieces πŸ˜‚. Does anybody else do this?
