    I found this yesterday at a local thrift store & even though I couldn't make out the name I thought it was too nice to be by a amateur, so I bought it & am hoping someone here could tell who the artist was?
    Much thanks for any thoughts!

    To my eye, it reads Iraizós. Not a surname I know but... The internet says it's "most prevalent" in Bolivia.

    Thank you as always Debora, you are the best!
    PS - do you like it or is it a weekend artist piece?

    Not exactly sure what you have. Is it an original watercolor? If so, think it might be a souvenir piece. By a local artist.

    I'd have to take it apart to see (with a magnifying glass it looks like a watercolor) but if it's not by a known artist I'll just sell it as a decorative piece.
    Thanks again, Debora

    I couldn't find any information about a contemporary artist by that name. Interesting church. Looks like it might be part of a convent. One wouldn't expect stained glass in a small pueblo. I'd sell it as a Bolivian scene.

    I'd have figured it for a nice tourist souvenir.

    Great heads up! Actually two watercolors. Subjects mis-identified as "Spanish mission." Signatures match.
