It has been a while since I painted and, admittedly, I felt guilty over the fact that I am losing my inspiration lately. I came a long way from doing art works over an old brush and coffee on a torn out notebook. And so with the number of art pieces displayed on our home, there was never enough room for new ones.
After I realized that it could be one of the reasons why I lack the inspiration to create new art works, I pulled everything out and kept it in our family house at down town Pasig.
After which, I got a new client, a very dear mentor who wants me to create a portrait of his in a manner of painting I have never done before. I accepted the challenge to create a beautiful messy portraiture, somewhat whimsical version of him. We call it, The Man with a Fan.
