Painting retablo.

St. Toribio Romo Gonzalez, Terry Nelson
5" x 4" acrylic on panel.
To be inserted into decorative frame.
Retablo ornament, Allegory of Penance.
Terry Nelson
Acrylic on copper, approx 3"x 2"
silver bells and hanger.

I'm working on a more complicated, larger canvas right now, but I'm taking time off to paint a few retablo style pieces.  I visited a local gift shop specializing in Mexican imports and became inspired to create some crafty items in the Mexican style.  I can't see very well these days, so the painting is not as precise as I would like, nor is the workmanship very good... and the scanner has some cat hair issues.

It's okay, my scanner has cat hair issues too.

Love them. Tell me more about the little bells on the penance piece--is it something to be worn by beggars, for alms?
