1.A Mother and Child Painting by the window sill. A lovely Filipina Mother on native baro at saya with her young daughter. If you would look closely, you will see the fine lines and the texture of the banana stalks which indeed could add more challenge in the process. However, blended with the color combinations and fine details of the portrait from the subject to the design of the dress and the background, all in all it is a splendid Philippine Painting by Alvaro Jimenez.
