Before a crowd of invited guests and art enthusiasts, Mr. Tayag delivered this message for aspiring Filipino-American artists, “Follow your heart and the art will come. Though this is perhaps the most difficult medium to master, it is its timeless spontaneity, vigor and vividness that has kept my long standing love affair with watercolor.” (Philippine Consulate General Photo by Nikka Arenal)
