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.
