The Grand Marshal unveiled at Tres Rebeccas

Visit Tres Rebeccas shop in San Antonio, across from El Mirador, on S. St. Mary's. A day of the dead exhibit of selected paper cuts by Kathleen, is on view now, with an opening on First Friday, Nov. 6th. Here is a preview, with my latest victim, Mike Casey, on bicycle, as the Grand Marshal for the King William Fair Parade. He is riding past the Pioneer Flower Mill, waving to his admirers, wearing his usual straw hat. One of his many chickens accompanies him. The paper cut is 4/5'. Viva Mike!

Mayor Hardberger portrait

Cut from Japanese rice paper, this portrait remembers the opening of LUMINARIA, in 2008, in downtown San Antonio, where the Mayor kicked off his version of an annual celebration of local arts in downtown San Antonio. I was there in the audience, making photos and sketches for this portrait. The celebration continues as a very successful annual event. The Mayor just celebrated the expansion of the San Antonio Riverwalk, on the day he left office, due to term limits. We congratulate him and hope he continues to be a force for green and aesthetic progress in San Antonio.

Tribute to Bongo Joe

This is a 3/5' cut paper wall hanging, created for the recent "LUMINARIA" event in San Antonio. It depicts the famous street musician, Bongo Joe (John Coleman) in downtown San Antonio. For years, he performed there with his signature drumming, singing and whistling. The Hemisfair tower and fire works can be seen behind him. His music can be still be accessed on Amazon.
