Retablos by Lynn Garlick

Lynn Garlick lives in Taos, New Mexico. She paints religious images in the regional style of New Mexico retablos, or a flat representation of a saint. She prints these images and she glues them onto lightweight wood in several sizes. Her retablos can be used as Christmas ornaments or be hung on a wall. More specific information about each saint is wood burned on the back of the retablo. Susan’s Christmas Shop has sold these for many years, beginning in the 1980s. Among the most popular retablos are St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of Santa Fe; Our Lady of Guadalupe; and San Pasqual, the patron saint of the cooks.
