This Os Tray was painted in 2001 using JoSonja acrylics. The wood Chippendale tray meassures 15 3/4 x 10 1/8" x 1 1/8".
This tray I took to Norway with me and painted it during the Vesterheim Rosemaling tour. We had a wonderful Os class from Torunn Rod Farsund who is a descendent of Annanias Tveit (1847-1924).
I started with a symmetrical design, but then I wanted to included more flower samples, so the design just took off with many different flowers. It was fun to try to balance the colors.
I decided to make a packet for this tray after numerous requests. It includes four pages of instruction, two photographs and the line drawing. "Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design" has a good worksheet with Os flowers that is helpful.
