After much anticipation, the day finally arrived!!!! I'm referring to Saturday the 26th of May, the beginning of almost a 3 month long exhibition of my favorite artist - Fernando Botero. Botero is a Columbian artist, perhaps one of the most loved of this part of the world. His work is truly amazing!! His works of art are full of vibrant colors and literally larger than life size. Botero's characters are robust or as he prefers to say 'full of volume'. Needless to say...this is the only day where I felt at home among all the people...that is...the people in the paintings.
So, if you want a smile that would last a while, then head over to the San Antonio Museum of Art or the Southwest School of Art and Craft for a visual feast of Botero's art. You won't regret being all smiles.
