I have yet to meet somebody who is not pleased with a piece of art. Human beings naturally prefer beautiful things.
On September 30, 2016, my sons and I went to our usual favorite hang out at Gudsilog only to be confronted with the sad news that it was their last day of operation.
Well, there is really nothing special about this place unless you are a human being who likes eating Filipino breakfast all day long. The meal prices are reasonable- ranging from Php70-99 pesos.In dollars, a meal costs about a dollar and a half. Not bad, right? But for me and my boys not only do we enjoy the food for hours, we pass time by enjoying the artwork which hangs on its walls. See these:
Notice the artwork in our background. A closer look :
Well, it’s nothing compared to Mona Lisa or Spoliarium but I must admit the artist put in a lot of hard work considering the details.
This particular Gudsilog branch where my boys and I usually go already closed down because of its inability to compete with the very famous and likewise reasonable restaurant beside it. So what’s the point? Well, there are plenty of places to go to admire art. One such place is the Art Island Cubao in Quezon City. In Art Island, you can actually be a part of the artwork. To do this, you must be armed with a camera or your mobile phone with camera. Here are our chosen artworks:
However, in my case when I barely have the money to go to museums, I amuse myself by making my own art with whatever materials available.
