This Valdres catchall was painted on a Smoked Pearl background using JoSonja acrylics in 2005. It measures 10 5/8” x 18” x 5”.
These flowers are painted in the style of Peder Aadnes (1739-1792). He was from Sondre Land and traveled and painted throughout southeastern Norway, therefore influencing other painters in a large area. He studied in Europe and with Edward Munch. I love the flowers he painted in the Bagn church, and that is the style represented here.
The packet includes four pages of instruction, four enlarged photographs and the line drawing.
