About La Contessa de San Antonio

Skip About La Contessa de San Antonio
La Contessa de San Antonio painting
When local artist, Kathy Sosa, was commissioned to create the mythical La Contessa de San Antonio, she had an immediate vision of a regal woman who was graceful, a renowned hostess, hospitable, welcoming and well-traveled.La Contessa de San Antonio is shown here in a full length portrait, where the style of her dress is befitting of 18th century European royalty. However, that is where the comparison of a traditionally dressed Contessa ends. The fabrics shown on the dress of La Contessa de San Antonio are less expected, brighter and more Mexican in feel, with a bright floral for the skirt and complementary waist coat, blended together like the colorful culture of San Antonio. Welcome to San Antonio and Hotel Contessa!

About the Artist
Kathy Sosa reinvented herself when she stepped off the fast track of the advertising world and moved to a small town south of San Antonio, Texas.She and her husband turned an existing workshop on the property into a painting studio for her husband, where artistic friends would regularly join them for creative and social gatherings. Tired of merely watching the group paint, Kathy picked up a paintbrush for the first time at age 45. Since 2006, Kathy Sosa has been commissioned to paint numerous pieces of artwork and has been showcased in museums and galleries throughout the U.S.
