Pocket Saint - San Gertrudis - Teachers, Educators, Students & Travelers

San Gertrudis Retablo

Patroness of Teachers, Educators, Students, Travelers 

"St. Gertrude you are a woman of great example both for your intellect and your heart. With joy and compassion may I meet my students' needs so that their minds and hearts are inspired and enriched."

Retablos are a devotional folk art form from Mexico and the Southwest US. They are small paintings on wood of Catholic saints and angels. To create these affordable heart-felt paintings of saints, angels and blessings, Lynn Garlick hand carves and paints her original designs on the traditionally used ponderosa pine planks. Then she decoupages high quality prints of her originals onto pine boards, in an old school technique used for the Italian altar screens of medieval Europe.
