"If you enter this world knowing you are loved and you leave this world knowing the same, then everything that happens in between can be dealt with."- Michael Jackson

All these thoughts surrounded me during sleepless nights so I woke up one day and I knew it. This is it. I have to paint it. I need to paint it. I came across an old photo. It's a 27-year-old photo of my sister Jones with mama, papa's cousin, and papa behind the camera in the paradise of Lido Beach Cavite Philippines (But now lost its beauty because of man-made pollution). It was a beautiful picture. I fell in love with it. I knew I will paint it someday.

What truly defines the Art of happiness? An innocent bliss of a child in a beautiful yet dangerous world. What can protect us from the greed, anger, hatred, lust, and darkness of human nature? I believe the priceless cure is an ocean of love. It defines the very core of the sacrifice of Jesus. An unconditional love of parents to their children. It's simple yet complicated. Once we lose our innocence we can never go back to find it again. It's irreversible. Most of the crimes today involved underaged, from shooting incident to rapes, robbery and drugs.

We are the children of God. Have we all lost our innocence? Can we go back? Can we find that Art of Happiness? I hope and I pray that one day you will.


What can I do? I'm just a simple speck in this big galaxy. What can I contribute? Something...can give a person a beautiful morning when he/she looks at it. A painting of innocent bliss giving you a thousand beautiful words. The Art of Happiness can be found in simple things. A care of loving mother and father, a priceless embrace of sisters and a brother, a shoulder of a friend, and a smile from a stranger.

I hope this painting can give you something that gave me. A hope for Happiness.
