This has been a pretty long day for me. In fact, I was also very busy yesterday because I spent half of my day at the National Library because I was doing my research for my thesis. Then I went to the mall to buy some stuff and fixed some papers. I was not able to return the books I borrowed from my school's library so I have the overdue books with me. :( It rained hard yesterday so it was difficult to go home, especially because there was flood.

So anyway, I spent my afternoon today practicing my dance for tomorrow. I will elaborate and share my performance for tomorrow really soon. I just can't reveal the details yet. And for this evening, I am working on my thesis paper.

So as to what my photo for this blog post is, let me introduce to you Isabel, a watercolor painting I did which is now hanging above my bed in a pink frame. I made this available as an 8.5" x 11" fine art print (minus the green stain in the original). You can purchase it here.

Also, you can use the coupon code BALLERINA10 for a 10% off discount on all fine art print orders above Php500 or $11.24 :) Hope you'll buy my art~


Rae Abigael J. Caacbay is a ballerina, visual artist, and a BS Interior Design graduate based in the Philippines. She went through a quarter life crisis by the end of 2016 and though she's lost in the middle of fulfilling her dreams, she still keeps on moving forward anyway. Most of her work focuses on interior design, writing/marketing, and painting.


  1. I didn't know you were an artist in addition to being an amazing ballerina, all around dancer, writer and poet. Your painting is lovely and I can see you love beauty too. The pink hair, blue lipstick and eye-makeup are wonderful. I wondered whether you love that look too but stay with more traditional looks for your ballet? It's a very pretty painting.

  2. Wow, I'm so envious of your artwork! I didn't even know you sold your works!! They are so creative! :") I'm so envious that you can dance too- I learned ballet when I was young but I don't remember much from it. Have a great weekend!! xx
