His Favorite Mounds

The recent typhoons that sent students home in floody waters and made them stay home from Wednesday to Friday is not all that bad - at least to me. Well, for one thing, staying in bed for more hours than usual is most welcome. And being able to watch tv at anytime I wanted - perfect! But even then, I knew I had to be productive. So, what could I do better than pick up my brush and my oils and paint. I have been meaning to this painting for a long time although time wouldn't allow me. So I did! I finished this last Saturday and all it needs now is my signature. I will have to wait for the paint to dry. This is entitled "His Favorite Mounds". Hope you like it.

The one who now owns this painting is so lucky. One of my favorites so far. I'm so lucky to own one of your works Tito Rolly. (Ay, two pala--and a few small pieces--and one you started and I finished).

Ang ganda naman po ng painting na ginawa niyo.
Lagi ko pong sinusubaybayan ang blog niyo. Andito po ako at ang pamilya ko sa Melbourne, so para mabawasan ang lungkot, basa na lang ako ng mga blog ng mga pinoy.
Galing niyo naman!

tingaling Oo nga. You are one of my collectors and I am happy that my works have a permanent home.

Meg Salamat naman. Ikaw, ba;t hindi ka rin mag blog at maganda rin siyang libangan.

haha, i'd already read the title, and while i was waiting for the image to load, i was imagining hills and valleys. couldn't help laughing when the painting finally finished loading. anyway, ang ganda sir. pero i wasn't really expecting any less. *clap, clap*

Tito Rolly, ang galing! I remember that the first time I saw one of your paintings in your blog (I was a new reader then) I fell in love with it right away because it also had varying shades of green. (If I'm not mistaken, that went to lucky Ting.)

Now that I am working again, I may soon be one of your collectors ... sandaling-sandali na lang. Yehey!

pag uwi ko, magpapacommission ako sa iyo ng similar na painting para kung sakaling magkabahay kami rito eh ilalagay ko sa dingding ng living room.

miki Buti na lang adult ka na ngayon no? hahaha

bugsy Madali naman akong kausapin eh. Just tell me what your specs are. I'd love to do one for you :-)

batjay Meron ka nang ilang gawa ko ah. Sige, basta sabihin mo lang ahead of time to allow for drying time at nang maiuwi mo jan agad.

Doc Emer I guess you do. Yes, no amount of rain could make me unproductive that time.

Just hoppin' in again. I've been meaning to buy a painting for the house that we just bought. Love that painting. sir, would you mind if i ask how much? i'm from cebu though.

I'm intrigued by the title: "His Favorite MOunds" Whose? :-)

8:05 PM  
Blogger rolly said...

siu I'd gladly send the price to you by email, if you'd like. Just send me an email address or you can email me at rollydelossantos@gmail.com . This one's taken, though :-)

The title's a private joke between me and the owner. But it could be any man, me included, who looks at those gorgeous milk, life providing entities with awe and respect.

Well then, I share your admiration for these mounds. Who wouldn't? :-)

Can I possibly see your other works. My email add: atty_afsiu@yahoo.com

Btw, thanks for dropping by my site. :-)

About
MGA TURO NI TITO:
Twenty years of teaching must sure amount to something. A new friend in cyberspace suggested I ought to have a journal by now. I agree.

Jack of all trade, master of none. First a disclaimer. My students have discovered this blog and they might think that what I write is gospel truth. Worse is they might find an argument that they think they can use, for some reason or another, against their teachers. So, to set the record straight, it is NOT. As a matter of fact, I write and open it to feedback to get another view in the hope that somebody would tell me if I am wrong and reenforce my thinking if it is right. Not that I will accept anything thrown my way, though. Just so I can think about it some more and decide whether my original stance is right or definitely off tangent. So there. I hope that clarifies everything. Now, on to blogging.
