Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Work of Art

Norwegian Rosemaling

I am a Rosemaler? This is my Rosemaling, through a Photo editing Camera app. I am planning on adding a border with an appropriate proverb.

Rosemaling is the traditional art of Norway, and today is Norway’s bi centenary: 200 years an independent nation today.

Gratulerer med dagen, Norway.

How about that? Australia is older than Norway! Australia had its bi-centenary in 1988.

Something to Ponder About.

Hurra for Norge... Syttende Mai in the antipodes...17th May parade and feast

About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    I don’t understand, Amanda: you’re saying you made this beautiful thing using a camera app??? That doesn’t seem to make sense; it appears to be chalk, and on the ground … I’d be really happy if you’d explain a bit for me; for it’s really appealing !


    • This is rosemaling, the traditional form of peasant painting from Norway that I practise and paint. I painted this on a wooden platter and then photographed it. Then put the photo through a camera app which produced this picture here, making it look like chalk on a pavement. Easy. Clear as mud?? 🙂

      Ah, now it is ! You’re talking about what I call post-production. Got it. 🙂
      It is VERY handsome: were I you, I would be awfully proud !

    Lovely – you are skilled! And, that Australia is older…never guessed?


    • I never really thought about that until now, Ann Christine. It is funny to think in these terms. And thank you for your lovely compliment. I still have much to learn, which is the one of the reason for my trips to Norway.

    This is beautiful, your original painting and then the changing on the photo. Very clever.
