Norwegian Folk Art – Rosemaling May 14, 2017

Filed under: Art,Art works,Artists,Bhutan,Calligraphy,Design,Folk Art,Norway — Janet @ 12:25 am

I have just participated in a 2 day workshop on Rosemaling Painting – a Norwegian folk art tradition.  I kept thinking of our years in Bhutan where we were absolutely surrounded by a rich tradition of traditional painting.  And I kept thinking of the art of calligraphy and the art traditions of China and Japan.  I’m prompted to explore the connections between these various traditions and influences and interconnections.
