Etsy Artist of the Week

This week, I'm featuring a baby Etsy Artist of the Week. This store is only a few days old, but don't you love it? Click on the picture to see the entire store. Read below. These have an interesting history.

A message from the owner:

In Mexican iconography, a retablo carries special prayers and wishes to God. A familiar retablo painting (on wood or tin) would have someone who is ill lying in bed beseeching the Virgin Mary for intercession to regain their health. I love these wooden prayers... I love painting on wood... I love sending these prayers into the universe and hope that they land beside you...

This piece is from my Peaceful Neighborhood collection and begins with the foundation of most houses - sheetrock; then it is layered as most homes should be - peace, love, and hope.This retablo measures 6" x 12" and comes with a matching easel for display.
