Christmas is just 23 days away, and I know most of us are cramming to check off all the items in our gift list. A few months ago, I was at SM City Cebu to check out a wedding fair when I spotted this watercolor and papercut painting. I am partial to anything pinkish, and I actually thought the text said “Soul Away,” not “Sail Away.” Anyway, I learned that the painter was an undergraduate student of UP-Cebu’s Fine Arts program, which is another reason that compelled me to buy the artwork.
Artwork makes for a great gift as they can be displayed until the end of time. When buying art in a budget, consider buying from still unknown artists (or, in my case, art students.).
