Pearl of the Orient Seas, 12"x9", acrylic on Bienfang 70-lb white paper

I was thinking of the land of my birth, the Philippines, when I drew this. Even if it is winter or autumn here in the U.S., I always kind of feel the tropical climate whenever I’m reminded of my country– beautiful beaches lined with graceful coconut trees, hot and humid summers interspersed with stormy rainy seasons, cheerful people blessed with even more sunny disposition…and gorgeous women! When I was a kid in school, I was taught that the Philippines is the “Pearl of the Orient Seas” because of its natural beauty and rich natural resources. It was true then and it still is now! I am glad I’ve never forgotten about it!
