Mexican Restaurant Mural

This is a life size mural painted on the wall of a Mexican restaurant in San Antonio. Recognize anyone? LOL. I got a big kick out of this one.

PS: I will be signing off for a while because I am having back surgery tomorrow. Back soon!

Sulpture Garden Pool

Nasher Sculpture Center
Situated in downtown Dallas at the base of the city’s skyline, the Nasher Sculpture Center represents Raymond D. Nasher’s vision to create an outdoor “roof-less” museum that serves as a peaceful retreat for reflection of art and nature and public home for his collection of 20th-century sculpture. The goal was to produce a structure of lasting significance that will sustain the legacy of the collection-- a kind of noble ruin reminiscent of the solidly-grounded archaeological sites of ancient civilization and their continuity through time.

Texas Hill Country Cabin

The area has been influenced by three major cultures: Native Americans, Spanish and German. Indians roamed the Hill Country first, leaving behind artifacts which tell of their nomadic life. The Spanish conquistadors followed, bringing a culture which was to endure to the present. German immigrants settled the Hill Country in the early 1800s and their descendants still call it home.
