La Villita. La Villita is an art community here in San Antonio, Texas. There are several fine art galleries, gift shops and restaurants in the community. The district is on the National Register of Historic Places. The structures range in architecture with Mission, Spanish and Revival and I'm thinking some French - built in the 1840's this is a true gem in San Antonio. Downtown San Antonio, South Alamo at Nueva or Riverwalk at the Ameson Theatre. Between the Hilton Palacio dil Rio and the Fairmont Hotel. Open Daily 10 am - 6 pm.

I have two plein air oil painting easels. Beautiful little wooden cases that hold everything. One I purchased and used once another was given to me by a friend. I dragged them both out to see which I would use in my upcoming oil class. One of them is about 15 lbs heavier because of the wood used with an Italian label. The easel drawer has adjustable compartments and the wood is beautiful. The other one is like a light pine much lighter and the easel drawer does not have compartments nor does it have a label. Hmmmmmmmm

Today I ordered this sweet device called The Square. This will enable me to accept credit card. How this little thing works - I plug it in to my smart phone and swipe the card. The funds are directly deposited into my business acct. Pretty sweet don't you think?
