From Where We Stand 17.5” x 22” Acrylic and gold leaf on wood panel 2010

This painting represents the many young Filipinos who came to the U.S. in the 1960s, forming the “second wave” of Filipino immigration. These were mostly young professionals such as lawyers, doctors, and nurses. By that time, women as well as men were allowed to enter the U.S.
