Algódon de Azúcar

Story behind the Artwork:

Ang painting na ito ay nag papaalala at nagkwekwento ng ating kamusmusan, umiiyak pa nga tayu pag hindi tayu napagbigyan ng ating mga magulang, dahil sa masarap at matamis nitong lasa na sanhi ng pagkasira ng ating munting mga ngipin. Madalas natin sila makita sa lugar na maraming mga bata sa eskwelahan, simbahan, plaza, palengke, bangketa at saan-saang lugar. Mga pagkain na simple lamang hatid naman nito ay tuwa at saya. Sana sa pag lipas ng panahon o susunod pang henerasyon ay maranasan din nila ang ating nakawilihang kainin, ang matamis at masarap na bulak, ang algodon de azucar o koton kendi.
