"Anak": Oil on Canvas

A child in a womb away from her mother

The first part of the work was painted in 2009, months after my whole family - my parents, and sister- migrated to the United States  

I was in Manila, studying medicine in those years.  

Though I know that I can stand on my own. I felt that I am still a child longing for the love of my family. 

Days after my graduation from med school, I finished my piece.  


That in all things, May God be glorified
