Well-known broadcast journalist Julius Babao shared a beautiful story behind the realistic painting he bought in 2017.
On Instagram, Babao uploaded a photo of Baguio-based artist Emel Espiritu while working on his masterpiece.
“Baguio based artist Emel Espiritu working on a painting I bought last year,” he wrote.
When you look at the painting, you might even think that it is a photo because it is very detailed and the subject looks really alive.
But what is more beautiful than the painting itself is the fact that Espiritu has no educational background in arts.
“Emel has no educational background in the arts. He is a self taught artist. This amazing gift can only come from God,” Babao said.
The broadcaster ended his post by saying, “Keep up the good work, Emel. The world awaits your masterpieces!”
