Local Artist of San Antonio

This is an inspiring story about a Local Artist who is ready to give back to those in need His name is Blas Hernandez Jr and he has donated many of his Artwork and provided Silent Auctions to many Organizations to donate a portion of the proceeds back to their Causes Being a Latino Artist in San Antonio has given Blas the opportunity to be involved with our communities His Artwork has been displayed throughout the City of San Antonio, from the West Side of SA, King William area to the Northside of SA

Blas Hernandez Jr, born on September 23, 1965 and raised in San Antonio, Texas is Owner of Art by Blas Hernandez and Co-Founder of Inspiration 4 Life Blas picked up his first paintbrush and put it on canvas in 5th grade and hasn’t stopped since It was then, at 10 years old, he realized that being an Artist got him a lot of recognition and respect from his school, family, and friends They saw the dedication, time

and hard work it took him to make his artwork come to life Blas does all types of Artwork, from Acrylic on Canvas, to Furniture Art and all types of Mediums Blas was inspired to take his art to many places of business and was appreciated by Rosarios Mexican Restaurant, El Buen Gusto Mexican Café, Retro Haus, Ray’s Puffy Tacos, Taco Haven, Madhatter’s Tea House and Café, Tienda Guadalupe, and Infinito Botanica Gallery to name a few Throughout his many years of experience of being an artist, he has done yearly events in his community Blas has done Art in the Hood, First Fridays at El Sol Studios, Tienda Guadalupe, Rey Willies, South Town Imporium, Blue Star and Art in the Park He has also displayed his artwork at Centro Cultural Aztlan for Dia De Los Muertos and Virgen De Guadalupe He has also been part of Casa Bohemia Gallery, Casa Margarita Gallery, Milagros, Pulquerios, Jive, and Gallista Art Gallery Through all this inspiration, Blas and his wife Rita also had their own Art Studio for 4 yearsand held Art Shows every 1st and 3rd Fridays They also showcased and Featured Artwork from Students in our Communities and held Art Classes to Educate those who were interested in learning about Art and learning how to paint

Blas has a lot of passion and love for the art He makes sure he finds time with his busy schedule for his family, work, and art With Blas having a full time job at Christus Santa Rosa for 26 years, it has kept him a very busy man I am honored to say he is my wonderful husband and the entire Hernandez Family, is involved in art as well We’ve been painting together for 15 years now Sometimes there is not enough time, so we tag team to finish a piece of art We paint together as a family to keep the art alive in our lives He also has his 4 children David Hernandez, Blas Hernandez III, Meghan Hernandez and Jon Michael Hernandez, who are also Artists as well Our daughters Amanda Cantu and Jasmine Hernandez are also Artists as well Art definitely runs in the family


You can see it in his art and the way he expresses a particular piece that he has completed One of his favorite themes in painting artwork is Dia De Los Muertos He takes more time and gets involved with this event because it shows more of his cultural side Blas is inspired by the talented Posada, and is proud to be on the same page as many other talented artists Blas is very humble and true to his friends Especially when it comes to being known as a Local Latino Artist He simply shines like a golden coin To Blas, it has been a true blessing to know that he has come this far in his life and for his community

Finally, Blas is humbled and honored to have his Artwork on the walls of some very well-known people in SA such as Former Mayor Julian Castro, Congressman Joaquin Castro, Former Congressman Charlie Gonzalez, Professional Boxer Jesse James Leija, Cha Cha’s Mexican Restaurant Owner Ricardo Ruiz, UTSA President Ricardo Romo and many more Blas also had the honor to create the West San Antonio Chamber of Commerce Fiesta Medal for 2015 Blas also had the amazing opportunity to be an “Extra” in the Movie, Gino’s Wife in 2014 He played an ATF Agent in the Movie It was a great and amazing experience for him Blas has been a part of giving back with Inspiration 4 Life through our year

A beautiful poem to give to a new dad on his first fathers day

Happy First Fathers Day Happy Father’s Day, Daddy, I have a present for you. No, it’s not in my diaper, But that needs changing, too!

I have a poem to let you know How lucky Mommy and I are, Because when it comes to daddies, You really are a star!

Thanks for taking care of me With cuddles and silly songs Thanks for settling me back to sleep, The nights they can be long

One day I’ll be big like you, And strong and smart and brave. But while I’m little I want to say, Happy First Father’s Day!

I needed to have someone on my side, Someone who was loving and true, I had to know that I mattered to someone, One of those someone ’ s is you

Because you always believed in me, I came to believe in me too, You built my strength and confidence, To see the tough times through

Thank you dad for believing in me, Thank you for taking my side, Through all the ups and downs of life, And every bumpy ride.

I’m truly very grateful dad, And I simply want to say, I hope you have a well-earned Happy Father’s Day!


Thanks For All You’ve Done

Happy Father’s Day Dad. Thank you for all you have done. If there was an award for the best fathe ever. Then I’m sure you would have wo

You’ve always encouraged me with my And took interest in the crazy things I d You’ve taught me to never give up on myself, And you ’ ve shown me that any dream can come true.

Thank you for being my personal taxi. Maybe dad stands for “dad always drive You have taken me to all the games an practices, And managed to never miss despite our crazy lives.

Thank you for all your kindness these y You’ve wiped tears and snot from my face, You’ve put up with mood swings and heartbreaks, You’re arms are my safe place.

You’ve been my support, Through good time and bad, I feel lucky indeed To have you as my dad!

Daddy’s Princess

I’m daddy’s little princess, daddy’s little girl! I make a little curtsy, and give my dress a twirl.

I smile so sweet and kiss your cheek, And I can ask for anything , Because I’m daddy’s little princess, the center of your world!
