    San Antonio 2

    This is the latest in a series I started in July of 2008. My first time out using AR3.07 SP. (I know, Iīm sort of slow on the uptake.)

    Hereīs a repeat of the blurb I included with the first piece:

    Iīm a great admirer of Latin American religious folk art. I have a small collection of hand carved wooden santos (bultos) from various places and of varying ages. I like the homemade quality and the brightness of the colors--well whatīs left of them and what hasnīt fallen off after many years. This is based on one of them.

    The other two can be found here if youīre interested:

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Cool from all aspects!

    ScottF,
    I do recall your mentioned 2008 thread and it is always most
    interesting to learn about cherished icons from other countrys
    and their significance. Thanks for the informative update. Can
    recall a statue of the blessed mother I was given as a preteen
    by a Benedictine nun, one of my teachers. It was made of plaster
    and hand painted in satin soft shades of blue and white. It sat
    on a dresser in my bedroom for ages and am now wondering what
    became of it.
