Today I want to talk about something that is a little bit off topic, as it’s not about Samar, but it is still relative. As many of you know, Expat2Phils.com has been reposting the “pagpipinta sa pulo” newsletter of Tara Alverson. Tara, a recent college graduate from California, spent most of this year helping International Care Ministries (ICM) to help the poor in the Philippines. During this time she created a set of artwork, that will be sold during an Art Show in January. The money from 9 of the pieces will be donated to the ICM. Below are some samples of Tara’s artwork, and photos of some of the interesting people she met. You can see more of her artwork, and read the stories of these inspirational filipinos, in her latest newsletter: “pagpapinta sa pulo: it’s not over (PDF file)“.
