This painting was done by combining two images that jlloren posted at WetCanvas. This is what Joel said about the Church… “The
Philippines was a Spanish colony for over 300 years until the end of
the 19th century when the Americans took over. Their biggest influence
is Catholicism. You will find old churches like this all over the
country. This one is Paete Church in Laguna.” The dog was napping in the warm sand in it’s photo. This way, the dog doesn’t have to have a bath when he gets home.
