Spanish Collection of Oils by Vonnie Kohn, at Beto's Restaurant
Anna, Beto, & Vonnie Kohn
In Texas, we have a wonderful cuisine known as Tex-Mex. Near us is a place known as Beto's Restaurant. The owner, Beto Garza, is also the chef, while his wife is hostess. We came to know Beto when he was employed at another local restaurant in our town. His excellent cooking left its mark on our community. When he became a proprietor of his own place, we found ourselves as faithful customers once again.
His blank walls became a "canvas" for my paintings to hang. Here is one of them, a 24 x 48" gallery wrapped canvas whose subject is one of five main Spanish Missions located on the "Mission Trail" in San Antonio, Tx.

I later added 2 smaller paintings to his collection. There is another works-in-progress, entitled, "La Golondrina" which is soon coming.
If you find yourself in the area (about 25 mi. west of Ft. Worth, Tx.), they are located at 1272 Hwy 199 E., Ste. 101 in a small shopping center on the top of the hill. It is one of those quaint little places in Texas that you encounter on a day trip...stop bye, I think you will be pleasantly surprised! Their phone # is: 817-677-4127 if you need further directions.
I'm on a journey ...one which involves keen observation, traveling, listening to the inner muse, painting the beauty of God's creation!
The smell of oils, the challenge of new ideas, delicately balancing all I have learned in the process--spells adventure and another moment of learning.
Come with me; share the journey...
