Specifically the King of Norway. I've been asked to paint a panel to by hung at Norway Hall in downtown Duluth. They are sprucing up for the King's visit. So I have been painting this for the King Of Norway. He is expected to visit Duluth on October 17th.
So here is my panel. It is one of 4 being done in different styles by 4 rosemalers in our local rosemaling society, The Twin Ports Rosemaling Society.
I think the colors are truer in this one, but the glare is worse. I wish I knew how to get rid of the glare when photographing rosemaling.
And here are a couple early photos that I took before it was finished.
My rosemaling teacher was originally chosen to do this panel in the Telemark style, but she is facing cataract surgery and called me a few weeks ago and asked me to do it. I was honored. Mine is certainly not as nice as what she would have done, but I hope it will brighten up the Norway hall.
