Spanish Market - My Purchases



My favorite thing to purchase at Spanish Market can be found in the Children's Artist area. They are both Retablo's and painted with natural pigments. The first piece, St.Francis, was created by a 15 year old artist and the smaller Virgin De Guadalupe was created by a 10 year old artist. I actually spied the St. Francis at the preview event on Friday evening and made it a point to search it out first thing yesterday morning.

Very nice as they are, but being created by children makes them all the more so.

You picked some nice ones, Randy. These young artists are very talented.

Kate said...

Were you able to buy it or had someone else nabbed it before you got there? Wonderful shots, Randy. I find it so very difficult to get good photos at these markets because of the crowd and lighting.

Kate said...
