PEN & INK EXHIBIT



So, it's official. I finally made a small poster about it.
(Pinoycentric wrote about it too.)

On the 20th of this month December, I'd be putting on exhibit several of my pen and ink works on paper you see here in my blog. I count around 15 of these framed works on paper and two new paintings that will be hanging at HALO RESTAURANT which is located inside Cubao EXPO. It will be nothing fancy. Just a simple exhibition and I believe Halmen has invited a band to play. The whole affair will begin at 7:30 until... well, the wee hours.

Halo Restaurant is a tiny two-floor restaurant right smack in the bohemian enclave of Cubao X. They serve comfort organic and healthy food, nothing too hoighty-toity but definitely delectable; and they have a sugar-free menu. NONE of their furnishings match and if you're a huge person such as yours truly, well, you might as well learn how to sit on only one of your butt cheeks. Other than that, it's a marvelous place to come back to again and again.

Hope to see you there!!!

@ Ebb: i spoke with the owner of the resto yesterday and she says that there's cool jazz group who'll be playing. these are guys who do sessions with other groups. i'm kinda excited with the idea that a group will do some jazz sessions. love it!

gaheepers, it would be great if a santa'd would plop a plane fare for you to visit the old country again. :-)

thank you for the well- wishes!

Palma, thanks for the invite. Unfortunately by the time your exhibit opens I'll be in Bohol with the family. Still, good luck and congratulations!

(BTW, you still haven't told me how you know Married Man. Please email me, hehehe.)

Hi, Dan! How are you?

I dropped a comment here almost two months ago, thanking you for helping my daughter with her Humanities interview project (she got a 1.25!).

I also remember promising that we would drop by your gallery sometime early last November... but which did not push thru, because... aysus, I was hospitalized for one whole week, dahil lang sa pigsa na sobrang na-infect!

Anyhow, I wish you luck on your coming exhibit and hopefully soon, I will be able to meet you and go to your future exhibits.

Here's wishing you the best of the holiday season!!! Cheers! :)

@ SCOTT : Thanks for the visit!

palma tayona said...

@ JOEL: aaaw, shcks. too bad you can't come. but it's okay. ;-) you have a merry vacation with your family.

p.s. The Married Man, he's a long time friend of mine. I know he does what he does when you did see it. the dead giveaway for me was the bruise on the knee, that he has a son and the status he wrote beside his handle. :-)

@ rhodora : aruuy! an infected carbuncle?!? yow!

i remember my older brother when he had the same thing, the blasted carbuncle grew in the nastiest place on his body - his butt! i still giggle whenever i remember the time we - me and my younger brother - tried to make the "eye" of that pus-filled boil pop out by placing a bottle of magnolia chocolite (the wide-mouthed glass bottle) upside down on top of it. then with one big stroke, we'd pound the bottle, pushing the rim of the bottle's mouth down AROUND the perimeter of the carbuncle and out came the pus. our older brother yelped like a cow and he fainted at the pain.

what makes me giggle is the thought that our brother had his pants down and we were pounding the bottle on his butt. i could just clearly imagine the weird scene.

oh yeah, and i believe, if memory serves me right, my mom had him walking around the house butt naked with a "kuyo" (some round plaster with some linament of some kind) plastered up his ass on that dang pigsa. we used to harass him because of that. lol...
