I've never, ever been to a friendlier town than San Antonio. At the San Antonio Museum of Art, the guards made me feel like a rock star---they were so interested in my sketches and so complimentary. But all the San Antonians we met were like that---warm, lively, outgoing. Even the birds are gregarious and full of song.
The museum has a large collection of Latin American art, both that brought from the old world and other work created in the new.
So, adios, San Antonio. Hope I see you again.
On the home front, I found these furly ranunculus at the first farmers' market of the season.
