Southwest ~ Mexican Folk Art Painting ~ RoMy Original
Title: "Saint Francis"
Size: 40"x32" ~ AWESOME SIZE CANVAS!!!
Hola! Muchos Gracias for stopping by my Terlingua Art Studio near Terlingua Ghost Town & Big Bend National Park (Texas) along the border of Old Mexico! For your consideration today I am offering this original painting:
Such a sweet aura in this Mexican ex-voto retablo of Saint Francis! San Francisco is the patron of peace & animals and is loved by all! The Spanish lettering on this unique painting reads: The animals give thanks to Saint Francis for his watch over them always.
Saint Francis is gently holding a dove in his hands and opposite him are two more dove. There is a Mexican cross in this piece ~ a colourful coyote and burro ~ a red bird and a blue bird ~ and an old mission. There is a sliver of a moon and a sprinkling of stars ~ and everywhere are tiny crosses! The colours in this piece are vibrant yet soothing! Its aura reaches out and draws you in ~ ~ ~
This is a VERY LARGE work of art ~ almost 4 feet high! And nearly 3 feet wide! It measures 40"x32" and will spendidly decorate any wall on which it is placed ~ whether it is in your casa or place of work. This fabulous folk art painting will be a focal point and a special addition to the collection of artwork in any home, restaurant, church community or recreation room, even a veterinarian office! It is a perfect size to place over a fireplace, dining table, couch, bed, desk or in a grand hallway. Also, there are so many colours in this piece (turquoise, blue, green, yellow, gold, purple, coral & red) that it will easily go with most any colour scheme!
What a great opportunity this is for the right buyer to add to his or her collection of Mexican Folk Art! And a perfect time to start a collection (if you haven't already) as Mexican Folk Art is quite popular now ~ and increasing in value with time.
Please Note: Colours may vary according to different computer monitors.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
The front of this painting is signed by the artist and the back is also signed, dated (2009) and titled. By the way the artist "Romy" - that's me! I live on the border between Texas and Old Mexico ~ near the Big Bend National Park ~ a few miles from Terlingua Ghost Town ~ and I love the history and culture of this area ~ a raw, still quite primitive land ~ a desert land where "rainbows wait for rain." The last few photos in this description show my outdoor studio which faces Santa Elena Canyon and the Rio Grande, the natural border between Old Mexico and Texas ~ and it is from this primitive setting ~ 80 miles from town ~ that I find most of my inspiration for painting. (in the photos Mexico is on the left side of the river and Texas is on the right)
