Painting, Traditional Art

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

  1. 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 !


    1. 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?? 🙂


      1. 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 !


    1. 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.
