Rustic Art

After wrapping up our visa and car legalization renewals yesterday, we stopped downtown for a quick lunch and to walk a few of the tourist shops for trinkets for this summer’s trip.  We always like to have some little Mexico-themed gifts for folks we meet and who bless us through hosting us.

We were glad to see that the shop of a local artist was open since we rarely visit downtown Querétaro and we hadn’t seen this shop open for over a year’s worth of those few visits.

We did pick up some wooden and metal spoons with small Mexican scenes painted on them.  As we were walking out we spied a group of corn husk paintings.  I don’t know much of anything about paint or art in general, but I would guess this is an acrylic.  Come visit and check it out and you can correct me on that as needed.  We were surprised to see them framed and mounted for only $150 pesos (about $13).

Here is the one we picked out.  It looks nice over our doorway to the kitchen.  Afterward, I was wishing we had bought a few more as gifts.  It’s lovely AND cheap!  That’s pretty much my definition of art worth buying.


I found a photo of a similar type of cactus flower for comparison:
