MIKEY ESPINOSA – FILIPINO ANCESTRAL HOME

Painting my mothers ancestral home. The Grecia house, before it was knocked down in 2013, it was home to our family for just over 100 years. Belonging to Don Daniel Grecia and Señorita Socorro Grecia. I used Acrylic paints on canvas to capture this home of sweet memories.mikey-espinosa-ungka-old-house-painting-for-nanay2016-2mikey-espinosa-ungka-old-house-painting-for-nanay2016-3Windows were well ventilated in those days  with enough protection from the rain, most living spaces were on the top floor to make use of the cool breeze.mikey-espinosa-ungka-old-house-painting-for-nanay2016These houses are almost near extinction due to the fast developing pace of the modern world here in the Philippines and very few are being preserved. I feel privileged to have been able to be brought up in one and say bye to it.
