I just can’t resist posting this lovely painting of Anita Magsaysay Ho, (Seated Women Sewing) a gifted and talented artist who is known for “her paintings that depict figurative abstracts of women at everyday tasks.” Four years ago, Bank of the Philippine Islands, where I used to work, started publishing pictures of paintings that they own via a lovely journal and my daughter who works there now gifted me with a copy. She has given me copies of these journal/diary/calendar that I collect since then. This year, it’s called A Legacy of Art (a treasury of paintings by Artists of National Prominence from the BPI Art Collection). I am almost afraid to write on its pristine pages because I like the paintings that they publish there. Here’s one more entitled Old Farmer With Hat by our National Artist Fernando Amorsolo done in 1929, oil on canvas.
