Santa Ana Retablo
Patroness of Grandmothers, Mother-Child Relationships and Housewives
"Santa Ana, you were favored by God to be the grandmother of Jesus. Your care and love of Mary must have been great. Guide me in my relationship with my relationship with my children and grandchildren. May the deep and profound love I feel for them overcome and heal mistakes I have made with them."
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.
