Arturo Thomae, Santa Cruz Mural Artist

“As he climbed down from his scaffolding, white, curly hair poked out from underneath his sun hat, which shaded his brown face, white mustache and warm smile. Paints of every color speckled his hands as he used them to talk about his love of art and life. “    -Jon Chown  Register-Pajaronian
