Mabuhay is a Philippine blessing. Its meaning encompasses a blessing of long life, full life, abundant life and joyous life. It was my first painting of 2023 and is about a yearning for lost connection to my culture.
The painting includes the roots, branches and leaves of the tree, together with a multitude of people, intermingled, intertwined, interconnected.
