Who is watching over your kitchen?

Saint of Kitchens San Pascual 007


1I was so thrilled when a special client contacted me about working on a custom commissioned wood and pyrography piece....She wanted the Patron Saint of Kitchens to watch over her and her kitchen....so I was thrilled to research this Saint....

His name is San Pascual ......San Pascual - is the patron Saint of  of cooks, especially New Mexican cooking, the kitchen and domestic animals ( and finding lost animals).

He was a Franciscan who happily worked in the kitchen.


Here is my rough sketch that turned into the final wood canvas....I think I need one in my kitchen too.....

I always love when people contact me to create something unique for them....

HOW COOL!! What a great surface to work on - I can see how beautifully this will look in a kitchen! What a special commission!!
Thank you for your sweet comments - the supplies: The glass and metal frames are from Inkessentials (cheap and easy) and the glue is E600. You can get the crystals at most craft stores, but if you want them in bulk, I use www.crystals2love.com. . . (let me know if that's wrong and I can email the link). I will probably doing more of these without the hanging earring at the bottom, as they are hard to come by.
Thank you for all of your support Diana, xoxoxo
