Norwegian Folk Art – Rosemaling May 14, 2017
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.

Lineman, painting by Norman Rockwell
I am not familiar with this particular painting by Norman Rockwell, but I certainly like it. A classic American image.
