Pista sa Nayon by Botong Francisco
Known more as Botong Francisco, he was the second Filipino artist to receive the title National Artist in Painting after Fernando Amorsolo. He is well-known in the art of mural painting.
Last year, April 2009, we had a chance to visit Angono again and passed by Dona Aurora St. on our way to the town’s parish church. The whole stretch of the street is literally teeming with Botong Francisco’s artworks. The sun was too hot on our backs so Nissa and I had to take some quick shots of the place. I even saw maestro Lucio San Pedro’s lyrics and notes of his composition, Sa Ugoy ng Duyan but I was not able to record it in my camera.
