This acrylic painting of the retro car Volksvagen Beetle is inspired by the artist’s childhood memories in his home town in the Philippines. Whenever he and his friends see this vehicle they would furiously tap the forehead of their friends and laugh and say “Pas Pagong”, because the shape of this vehicle is similar to a turtle or tortoise ( “pagong” in Philipino language means turtle or tortoise”- author’s note). The artist uses red color because it symbolizes Happy moments of his childhood and his friends. When it comes to life affiliation it tells us that life may lead us into different directions but brings us to one destination- to God’s Love. Whatever type of vehicles we drive on along the way, at the end of the day this God’s presence is our destination, if we give ourselves to Him. This painting reminds us of innocent life during childhood and memories that are worth remembering. How about You do you have a story to tell about this “Red Beetle”? Does it bring any special memories or thoughts?
