One artist whose work blew me away was folk artist Peter Ortega who carves angels and saints, both large and small, out of wood.
Pete can make an Angel Gabriel from a dead tree branch.
(Edited 8/2 evening) Pete says this is Archangel Rafael, the healer. He adds, "San Pasqual also has fish but with bread and wine (for the cook):))"
I liked the little birds on this tree.
But my favorite was a St. Francis carving as tall as I.
If our house were bigger, I'd buy St. Francis, for sure.
Looking at the ginormous volume of art at Spanish Market was like trying to drink from a fire hose. I couldn't take it all in properly, so you can bet I will be there next year.
