Experience the essence of tradition here in the southwest with this a modern-day interpretation of San Isidro, elegantly accentuated with metallic gold ink. This artwork pays homage to an iconic figure in New Mexican folk art and embraces a cherished family tradition that carries the blessings of the soil and the harvest. Each year, my family takes an icon of San Isidro out into the garden to watch over the seedlings. San Isidro is a revered symbol of protection for gardeners and farmers and stands as a guardian and a beacon of hope in the fields.

The metallic gold ink adds a touch of sophistication, symbolizing the golden potential that lies within every seed, the promise of abundance, and the hope for a bountiful harvest.
