Hallingdal Cheese Box Pattern Packet
Hallingdal Cheese Box Pattern Packet

This basic Hallingdal design using JoSonja acrylics was painted in 2006.  The cheese box measures 11” x 5” x 2”.

Hallingdal, along with Telemark produced the most numerous painters and reached great heights in artistic development.  The painting here is especially connected to the Sata-Baera School in Al, where the first known Norwegian rosemaler, Truge Gunhildgard (born 1699) decorated several interiors.  He was a pioneer and did not create the local style as we know it.  The style stems from the Sata-Baera School and those associated with it.  I incorporated some of my favorite Hallingdal flower forms in this symmetrical design.  The used a Rococo border on this one, but a string of flowers or lettering would be a great border as well.

The packet includes three pages of instruction, five enlarged photographs and the line drawing.
