  I returned from the Fiesta art show in San Antonio at the SW School of Art.  This is one of my very favorite art shows.  It is so compatible with my art style.  The booth I had was located in an old stone cathedral surrounded by stained glass windows, iron chandeliers, a pretty polished wood floor and tapestries.  The crowd is ebullient and celebratory.  Fiesta is San Antonio's version of Marti Gras and they really get into it.  The locals don their most colorful outfits-there's fun wacky hats,  intricate embroidery and displays of metals that they collect each year.   I gorged myself on authentic Mexican food and people watched for 2 days. 
  Below are a some photos.

One of many colorful, fun tops to be seen.

Very Fiesta Texas kickers!

I guess I wasn't the only one taking photos.

Looks like imagery from my paintings.
