Spanish Market # 5


These Retablos are the work of Amanda Greigo from Los Lunas, New Mexico. What I just love about her work is the way she paints the eyes on her saints. I will have to get one for my home one of these days. Click on the photo for a better look.

You can see more of her work on her Facebook page

Have a happy weekend doing what you love!

Yes, these are nice. It seems as though there is just a touch of sadness behind the eyes.

I'm glad you have photos from The Spanish Market and I hope there will be from the Native American Market too!

I think these are the cutest retablos I've seen.

Tanya said...

talented lady!

Kate said...

I followed your link and was surprised at how young the artist is. I often associate retablos with male painters; I wonder if that is accurate or just a misconception of mine?

Magpie said...

These are very sad, dreamy eyes.

Jack said...

There is no time like the present, Randy. She will still have some for sale tomorrow.

Allison said...

I agree...these depictions are beautiful, Randy.

Traveling Hawk said...

I like that with Jean D'Arc!
