New updated covers and colorful inserts to display examples of Rosemaling. (3-1-18) Two books in one! Rosemaling flourished in Norway from 1700 to 1850, and the designs are still around, gracing old wooden trunks, furniture, bowls, plates, and many other wooden surfaces. This gorgeous, classic art form is still being practiced today. Penfield's latest rosemaling title combines two previous books by renowned artist/instructor Helen Elizabeth Blanck. It shows how to perform rosemaling in simple, step-by-step instructions helpful to the novice or expert alike. Topics covered include bands or borders, scrolls, getting started, materials, color harmony, accents, and quick tips. Dozens of designs allow readers to create their own works of art.

Thousands of people have learned rosemaling from Helen Elizabeth (Bowman) Blanck (1915-1988), both from her books and in her classes. Her rosemaling studies started in 1971 at the Norwegian American Museum in Decorah, Iowa. In Sweden she studied folk painting with Hans Prins in Leksand and helped bring him to the American Swedish Institute to teach. She maintained studios in her home in Blaine, Minnesota, and at her summer cabin at Knife Lake near Mora, where she taught. She also taught at Kelly's Knife River Gallery on the North Shore and in Stockholm, Wisconsin. She had numerous commissions, and her work graces many products and gift items. Many private collectors also own pieces of her work.
