This Telemark design is painted on a 16 inch three beaded plate which comes from Hofcraft. I used values of blue for the background. Lettering which reads, "Life is full of the big things for the ones who are comfortable with the small things," circles the center design. For the border I used string of Telemark flowers.

This large corner cabinet is the one featured on the cover of my latest book, Rosemaling, Styles, Study and Design which is now out of print. It's available on DVD. There was not room for the large designs in the book, so I've placed them in a packet.
This adorable little box is a great place to store a ring or gem. It seemed natural it should have a nisse sitting under the mushroom cap. I hope you'll enjoy painting this fun piece.
This Telemark 8" plate includes a nisse that I painted in a very old design in the 1980's.

This is the first in the Rosemaling Styles Series. It covers a little history of the Telemark area and characteristics of the style.
The idea for this clock came from wood scraps from the door escutcheons. I loved the shape and painted this one with Telemark using some metallics to make it more elegant.
This 12” shallow bowl was painted using JoSonja acrylics in the Telemark style.
This is a great bowl withthe double beads to trim with correspondending colors. I used Rich Gold in the line work and mixed with Raw Sienna in some areas where I side loaded into reds and greens. You can see the root of the design comes out of the edge of the bowl next to the beads for something different.
I love this little bean pot and decided to dress it up with elegant Telemark using Rich Gold, Silver and Pearl White with my normal Telemark palette.
This Telemark design is painted on a light background with blue trim. I taught this one at the 2014 San Diego convention. It's such a fun wood piece to paint with a number of designs.
