Stef+Naomi Photography: Sunbeams and You

26 Feb 20140226-170334.jpg

Flowers in her hair,
Eyes closed.
Endless dreams,
Mind wandering.
Alive,
And truthful…

She dreams.

I couldn’t stop myself from picking up my charcoal pencils and drawing the night away.

This is what I ended up with.

My Art: My Angel

15 Jun

  

Then, now,

Always.

My Art: Trouble

My #Art: Trouble#Watercolor on paper

  
Everybody called her trouble,

Except for him.

He called her beautiful.

My Art and Poem: Falling

My #Artwork & Poem: Falling

#Charcoal
You’re right, love scares me. 

How can it not? 

You open up your soul to a newfound stranger, 

without knowing what tomorrow will bring. 
Yes, that’s what scares me most of all. 

The vulnerability it brings.

Setting your soul free, 

letting your heart fall, 

letting yourself go, 

little by little. 
I’ve never quite found a feeling as scary as that. 

My Artwork: Grief

5 May

 
 I finally found time to draw/paint this morning. As I was thinking of faces I could quickly sketch, one face stood. On May 3, I saw a picture on FB taken by my HS schoolmate of a man grief-stricken due to the earthquake that happened in Nepal. In one picture, I could see all the pain and loss and it broke my heart.

And on that day, I promised that I’d paint him one day. 

On April 25, the most powerful disaster that struck Nepal since the 1934 earthquake, took away 7000 lives and injured more than twice as many.

Let’s not forget to keep them in our thoughts and do all that we can do to #HelpNepal. 


What we do to help, no matter how small of an act we think it is, matters.

I’m giving this artwork of mine the name that my HS schoolmate Christopher Luke Hipona named his picture, Grief.

Then & Always

22 Apr

I dreamt about you again.

I called out your name,

begging you to stay.

I felt defeated, my screams unheard.

You left, you had to, and I on the floor

Tears falling, heart empty, had to face

Your absence yet again.

 

It’s always the same story.

I’m in trouble,

I see you,

I scream for you.

You seem so near,

But I can never have you back

Like I used to,

I could never hug you,

I could never talk to you…

 

You are gone.

 

You come in my dreams now,

Like you did when you were around.

You’d walk into my room

And smile from ear to ear

Hello my dear Jamie,

Hello my dear child.

 

You were the kindest soul in my life,

The hero I have come to know.

 

The day you left us,

My world, our world, fell apart

 

It’s never been the same.

 

You were the kindest soul in my life,

The hero I have come to know.

 

You had the biggest heart.


I still think about you…

 

I love you, Lolo.

Then and always.

 

  

 

Travel Finds JCAF Bags: Thank You!

19 Apr

I’ve been getting messages about how my friends have stumbled upon our JCAF ladies in #Intramuros. 

Can’t say it enough, years ago I would never have imagined that I would be able to share my art, my passion, in this way.

Jayme (@travelfindsshop) and I had one goal: to share our love for both traveling and art with all of you. 

2 years, 4 collections.

Thank you for the continuous support and love you show for this passion project of ours. Let’s continue to support our local workforce (yes, these bags are handsewn in Cainta) and more importantly, let’s continue to spread the love for the art. 

A big thank you once again to all those who have been posting their adventures with our #TravelFindsJcafbags. I am eternally moved!

Maybe I’m a little tired

Tired of the hellos and goodbyes

And the in betweens…
