full width huichol painting copyA few weeks ago, Mike and I wandered into a local resale/antique mini-mall type store to peruse a friend’s booth of records, cds, etc. Right next to his booth, I spied a multi-colored intriguing large wood panel with what looked to be yarn comprising the imagery. Like my Huichol yarn painting.

A large panel, it measures 49″ wide by 24″ tall. If you’ve read my blog before, you know I have a thing for Huichol art so you already know that I snapped that painting right up.

I love the imagery, it’s as if the small figures from the yarn painting that I already have have been enlarged onto this painting. I haven’t hung it in the house yet, right now it just sits on an easel in my studio for inspiration.

    I read your blog and I found myself in a similiar situation. I was out thrift shopping when I cam across a large picture sitting on the floor, I loved the colors and brought it home and started doin research on the yarn painting. I know nothing about this and on the back was writting from the artis and he told the story of the picture. It is writtn in Spanish so I really cant read it. I believe it was make in Noyarit Mixico and on the front has the writting of S.M.C do you know how I can get any info on the artist? or maybe you might know of him. I believe the first name might start with an M..I would really appreciate an info you could spare. ThankYou so much..Majbrit Clarke

    Thanks for stopping by to look at my students’ yarn paintings. Huichol yarn paintings are a lot of work, but absolutely fascinating!
