Jef’s collectors, Ma’am Rose and Sir Tony Paner who came all the way from Muntinlupa City, went up to Baguio for the weekend to celebrate their Silver wedding anniversary. Last Saturday, we met at the Baguio Country Club and after a short snack we accompanied them to Bencab Museum along Asin Road in Tuba, Benguet, a 20-minute drive from the city center.
Last year, they acquired two of Jef’s paintings, "Taraw" (Star) and "Solemn" and were very happy with their collection that they expressed their desire to acquire more of Jef’s pieces to fill the remaining blank spaces on their house walls.
