Lynn Garlick Retablos Lynn started carving, painting, and producing her retablos in 1993. Her workshop is located in the high desert town of Taos, New Mexico. The retablo, or “board behind the altar”, was originally created in New Mexico in the 1800’s in response to the lack of Bibles and Icons being sent from the church in Rome. Lynn paints her originals retablos on traditional pine boards carving and then painting them with watercolor or occasionally oil and finishes them with a polyurethane. The orginals are then reproduced and mounted on1/8 inch baltic birch. The backs are laser engraved with a prayer or information relating to each saint.
