Binalot ng matinding pangungulila ang celebrity photographer na si Mark Nicdao sa pagpanaw ng Filipino artist na si Bree Jonson.

Si Bree, 30, ay natagpuang walang buhay sa loob ng bathroom ng isang resort sa La Union.

Kasama niya roon ang angel investor at art patron na si Julian Roberto Ongpin, anak ng bilyonaryong negosyante na si Roberto Ongpin.

Lumalabas na malapit na magkaibigan sina Mark at Bree, base sa sunud-sunod na Instagram posts ni Mark nitong September 19 at 20.


Dito ay makikita ang masasayang alaala ni Mark kasama si Bree.

Ipinakita ni Mark kung gaano ka-chill ang mga bakasyon nila ni Bree sa beach.

May kuha siya kay Bree na palutang-lutang sa dagat habang tanaw ang magandang paglubog ng araw.

Pati slow-mo ng paglubog ni Bree sa dagat at pagsalubong niya sa malaking alon ay may videos din si Mark.

Ani Mark, “She’s unfazed by the big waves!!!”

Mahilig din silang mag-sound trip ng mga kanta ni Barbie Almabis. Sa isang video ay makikitang kumakanta si Mark ng “Firewoman.”

Pinakinggan din nila ang “Tabing Ilog” ni Barbie.

Dito ay makikitang self-confessed fan si Bree ni Barbie. Aniya, “I had her CDs. She didn’t know how much I loved her, but I was, yeah, always there.”

Nagbigay-pugay rin si Mark sa galing at talento ni Bree na tinawag niyang “my master at mindblowing genius.”

Lumalabas na si Bree ang nagbigay kay Mark ng lakas na loob sa aspetong ito.

Sa isang video, magkasamang kinuwento nina Mark at Bree ang tungkol sa pagdiskubre ng photographer ng pagkahilig niya sa pagpipinta.

Sabi ni Bree, “You were just a natural. I brought you to the store. I picked out the first colors for you, like, the basic ones.

“But then you started buying your own. Hahaha! I was really, like, happy about it.”

Noong una ay tila hindi pa raw kumbisido si Mark kung kaya niyang magpinta.

“I have a problem with colors… Because it’s something I never tried. It’s something I never had interest to try.

“At first, I was frustrated. The usual. I had to force myself. I really wanted to paint but I closed my doors to it…”

Kinontra ni Bree si Mark.

Sinabi ni Bree na sa karanasan ni Mark sa photography at sa galing nito sa lighting ay imposibleng hindi ito marunong sa pagbalanse ng kulay.

Dagdag ni Bree, “You already know. But you only had to put your application and slowly find your way from there.”

Dito na sinabi ni Mark na si Bree ang nagbigay-inspirasyon sa kanyang magpinta.

“Exactly. That’s what happened. When I saw your works. The way you did your color scheme is just magical for me. It’s something that actually catch my eye.

“When I saw your work, ‘Holy sh*t, I’m gonna message Bree.’

“I went to you and everything. The once, or twice, or thrice that I went to you, I felt, like, wow! I was inspired.”

Sa caption at comments section ng post ni Mark, inulit niyang si Bree ang nagbigay sa kanya ng “confidence” para magpinta.

Sa isa pa niyang Instagram post, ibinahagi ni Mark na lubos ang kanyang galak nang magustuhan ni Bree ang gawa niyang art piece.

Sa dami ng litrato na pino-post ni Mark, humingi siya ng pasensiya sa kanyang Instagram followers sa pagpa-flood ng mga alaala niya kay Bree.

Malaya raw ang iba na i-unfollow siya sa Instagram kung naiinis na sa kanya.
