Pentagon officials however are in shock after a transcript of their conversation was released on May 23, 2017. Pentagon officials are very careful about discussing the movement of their submarines as is it their military's belief that their stealth is the key to their mission.

Fernando Amorsolo

Fernando Cueto Amorsolo (May 30, 1892 – April 24, 1972) is one of the most important artists in the history of painting in the Philippines.[1] Amorsolo was a portraitist and painter of rural Philippine landscapes. He is popularly known for his craftsmanship and mastery in the use of light. Born in Paco, Manila, he earned a degree from the Liceo de Manila Art School in 1909.

I have heard of Fernando Amorsolo before but I have never seen any of his paintings. I may have seen one but did not realize it was his work until I saw this set of photos from Pearl of the Orient: Discover Old Philippines FB Page.

Here are some of Fernando Amorsolo's work. Photos are owned by their respective owners and full description of the paintings are available at the Pearl of the Orient: Discover Old Philippines FB Page.
