This wood piece is one that I had on the shelf many years and decided to paint it with a black background and use Rich Gold and Pearl White as light values and in the detail. It provides an elegant look to Telemark.
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.

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.
This wonderful tine has horse head handles and lacing on the back. It is painted on "Pond", JoSonja background color, with red accents. The inside is painted with Smoked Pearl and has a faux design. The design is of Vest Agder origination using basic strokes.
This clock is painted on a Smoked Pearl background that was stippled with Pearl White and then Rich Gold. The flowers are painted in a European style that I enjoy.
