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.

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…
Hellos and Goodbyes

Painting and Poem: You’re Out There
I feel you’re out there,
Like a country I’ve long dreamed of visiting;
Of which, I’ve collected a thousand beautiful pictures;
Of which, I daydreamed of spending late afternoons, chasing sunsets,
And evenings, watching stars.
I feel you’re out there, somehow, somewhere,
Waiting, just waiting,
To be found.
