100TH POST AND AN ANGEL

Angel Flowers
9.5" x 12.5"
ink and acrylic on paper


Sometime middle of last year, a good friend of mine named Donnie left for Malaysia. Before he did, he sent me a text message saying "Open your email. I have a gift for you." When I did, I was surprised that he made this blog for me as his parting gift.

Prior to this, I would email enmasse to everyone in my directory whatever image I get to finish. I was surprised that he kept all my emails and images. I thank him for that. And I thank him for this blog. At least now, I don't clog other people's inboxes.

As a sort of gratitude to those few individuals who actually read and surf through here, I am "celebrating" my 100th post with a sort of "pa-contest" Thank You.

That Angel above, I am giving it out to the Tenth Person who would send me a note in the comment section of this blog saying "I WANT IT." That simple.

If you're a local who gets this Angel, I will simply leave the artwork at 1/Of Gallery in Serendra for you to pick up anytime. If you're not a local, do give me some time for me to FedEx this.

I will announce who gets it TEN DAYS from now - March 25th.

Thanks a million to you. :-)

hi there.... thank you for your interest. to be fair to those who sent a "I WANT IT" post, i mentioned the TENTH PERSON to send me a note in the comment section would get the work.

i apologize if i cannot include the anonymous ones. unless you mention your name in your note, i have no way to track the sender.

so far, counting the people...

1. chrissie
2. marga
3. ezra
4. coldman
5. jograd
6. bert

... have sent their intent.

(sorry equus, it has to be a note in the comment section and not in my email - to be fair)

thank you guys. :-)

still waiting for the tenth person.

I WANT IT!

Being tenth is just an ordinal number anyways.... but i will give 10 reasons my i want it

1. it is a work on paper, which i think compared with oil, is more personal :)

2. It is just the right size. Not so big. i can pick it up, when i want to take a closer look at it....

3. The colors and lines are very basic but effectively tells a story... which comes to ....

4. Depending on my mood, it can be a parlorista, or a highschool student..., or sige na nga ....

5. it is an angel, pero angel na beliveable kasi....

6. parang naghihintay siya....definitely lahat tayo may iniintay....

7. kahit nagiintay, mukhang optimistic naman....

8. at matiaga siya kasi kahit malapit na malanta flowers nia, fight pa rin!

9. pero relax pa rin siyang naghihintay.

10. i want to win so i can have a reason to visit again 1/of and see the sexy gallery manager. malayo kasi sa amin eh.

Kiks Phulumulu said...

10. NORMAN - TADAH!!!

Congratulations NORMAN. You only need to send me a note confirming it is you and an email. i will give you details when and where to pick up.

To all those who sent their intent, thank you so much.

thank you chrissie, marga, ezra, bert, jograd, nance, dapit-hapon, inkversified, mandaya moore (your blog rocks), coldman (your blog has so many rocks), jay, kiks phulumulu, Agent Boytoy, the Penarandas - the dolor, henry and hilario; kenneth flores, sherwin, equus and the several anonymous people.

i didn't expect there'd be a lot of responses when i opened my blog after a couple of days and already there's a winner. i guess it'd be best to close this "pa-contest" way before the 25th of march.

again, CONGRATULATIONS NORMAN!! you won with your "i want it" note dated march 16, at 10:40 am.

amicus said...

ako din, gusto ko

congratulations nga pala. :)

Big Bad Red said...

i was hoping there would be a bunutan where a sheet of paper would have a STAR written on it, and i'd get to pick it up again--because it's the last remaining paper and i didn't have any choice anymore as to which to pick.

then again, TEN isn't my lucky number. pero pag may kinalaman kaya sa kalbo, lucky ako? bwehehehehehe.

i seriously need to hang that sketch you made--WHICH I WON FAIR AND SQUARE and not given to me by you (bwhahahahaha)--up my newly-purchased condo (namaaaaaaaaaan! yehey!)

let's do cookout again soon, daniel. dying to cook again. new recipes...and new oven, too!
