A Painting Journey


November 13, 2012

Just back from four days of painting at the California Rosemaling Association's 25th Anniversary convention. Vesterheim Gold Medal rosemalers Lois Mueller and Trudy Peach led classes in Rogaland and the Vest Agder style of Norwegian painting. Great projects and a joy to watch them paint.  Many lessons learned and techniques to put into practice... And a great chance to get together with painting friends from all over the country. It's exciting to see so many painters studying the Scandinavian art forms.
