This beautiful stave church is located in the southern end of the Valdres valley in about 1327. It has been added to over the years and the inside pulpit and alter was painted in 1766 by Hovel Gaardner. The flowers appear to have influence from the great painter Peder Aadnes who traveled and painted throughout south eastern Norway. I used these ideas in painting the border around the winter scene.
The packet includes photographs, instructions and the line drawing for this 12 inch plate.
