The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Thanks Val...told my wife to post it on her facebook so her Filipina friends can see it and tell them I'll sell it. Finger's crossed. (what's a good price? 16 x 20   $150 0k?)

Hi Pat, I LOVE halo-halo!!!  Nice job on the glass and spoon, esp.  What is the name of the purple ice cream (I forgot).  Go to Chow King with your wife and split one ‘cuz they make ‘em real big, real cheap in P.I.   And remember to do a photo with the scoops of ice cream over the shaved ice and all the goodies!  Maybe all the Filipinos in Daytona will buy your halo-halo paintings!  :yippee: ~Liz

Thanks Liz, i had a hard time doing the ice cream on this. Ok Chow King...will remember that. Would be nice if someone was interested in the painting, but no one has messaged me so far.

Mabuhay, Pat!  I remember now- it’s called ube ice cream.  There is also ube bread.  I think it’s sweet potato of some sort but not positive.  Did your wife prepare that one?  You can get the fruit mix in most markets, but not sure about the ube ice cream.  My suggestion is next halo-halo painting be a close up of Chow King’s version!  It will wow over the viewers! I think I will try more close ups when there is a central object that is the focus because developing background is often challenging for me.  You have the right idea of keeping it simple so the viewer can see what is the important element in the painting.

PURPLE YAM!  I like that!  I made my family’s favorite candied orange yam for Thanksgiving.  Real easy with melted butter and topped with marshmallows.  I prefer just a bit of brown sugar, but the kids like the sweet, sticky marshmallows. 


We work with Chinese and Filipino congregations and love Filipino food, especially.  I like all the exotic vegetables they use in pinakbet and banana lumpia.  When you go to the malls in the city you can get halo-halo pretty cheap, maybe $1.00? I was last in P.I. In 2012. And it cost $5.00 at Filipino diners in U.S.
