Poverty did not stop this homeless old woman for doing what she loves. And now, a photo of her making artworks in the street is making the rounds online, inspiring thousands of netizens with her amazing talent despite her situation in life.
In a post shared by Facebook user Judy Ann Samorin on June 15, 2015, the photo shows the homeless artist along Gil Puyat Avenue creating another masterpiece while some of her works are laying on the ground. According to Samorin, the homeless woman is selling her artworks for P15 for her survival.
June 15, 2015 around 5pm nakita ko tong isang pulubi along sen. Gil Puyat avenue. I was with my best friend that time when i saw this woman (not sure) nagdadrawing ng iba’t-ibang subject. We are so amazed that time, she’s selling her works worth 15 pesos. Nakakamangha lang na ang ganging gift ang binigay sa kanya ng Diyos 😊 sana lang may maka-notice na isang art school, org or even asso. para marecognize yung ganitong pambihirang talent
More than 20,000 netizens liked the Facebook post and it has reached more than 10,000 shares as of this writing. Most people who made their comment on the photo lauded her talent and praised her for using her love for art to survive instead of just asking for money. They were also asking for her exact location so they can buy her artworks or give her some art materials.
On June 24, another Facebook user William Fann posted a comment on the post saying he saw the old woman near Cityland Makati and Cash and Carry.
