This retablo by Catherine Robles Shaw depicts San Pascual, the patron saint of cooks. It measures 11 1/4" by 5 1/2". Catherine makes her retablos in the traditional way -- she first seals her wood with rabbit glue gesso, then uses only plant and mineral based paints for the images. When the painting is complete, the work is sealed with pinon sap and waxed. Her workmanship is exquisite and she is often a winner at the Santa Fe Spanish Market. The perfect gift for a great cook...or someone who needs a little help in the kitchen!
