Rosemaling-Telemark Lesson

Another lesson completed. This was painted on an 18" plate and I rather like the way it turned out. I am not into strokework and have a hard time with it. Especially the long scrolls. I like the colors! I am working on the next lesson, which is another lesson involving strokework. After I get that one done, the next lesson is a landscape with a fox! I am looking forward to that one after all of this strokework. Painting is my therapy and these days, I need lots of therapy!!! I have just about finished a series of altered art pics from Sharons' class and will post them when the details have been added to them. I am having fun painting my little faces. Much more fun that strokework, for sure!!!!

This is wonderful!! Strokework for this type of painting is probably like practicing letterforms for Italic Calligraphy...necessary but agonizing sometimes. I hope you are doing ok. Painting girls with happy faces will help a little bit. I am thinking of you!
