This plate was a convention project concentrating on these special cabbage roses. They are a little more difficult to paint as I used the chisel edge of a filbert to achieve the shape of many petals.
This tine measurers about 6 x 6 x 9 high at the handles. I painted it with a black background. The rosemaling is painted with JoSonja Silver and Pearl White. I softly glaze parts with blue and red. It was fun to experiment.
This is a really nice tray made from poplar. It's a great shape and easy to pick up the way the handles are made.
This is a wonderful 13 x17 inch towel holder designed and made by Paul Brooks from alder with maple bars. it's very sturdy and good for hanging other things besides towels. My daughter uses hers in her laundy to dry her delicate things on. it has two keyholes for hanging to make it good and strong.
I painted the freehand asymmetrical Telemark design on a natural background with red, yellow and green.
Valdres style is painted on this lovely box in the style of Peder Aadnes. He was one of the early painters that traveled throughout southeastern Norway. He studied in Europe and his painting in the Bagn Church in Valdres is gorgeous.
This 9" x16" catchall is made from alder and poplar. We designed this from an old one found in an antique store. It's a handy object to hold odds and ends. This piece I painted for the Decorative Painter Magazine in the Vest Agder style on a neutral background with stippled shading around the edges. The palette used is red, yellow and green used to paint typical flowers from the area. It has a keyhole on the back for hanging.
