Rosemaling and Trolls have been an important part of Norwegian culture and literature for centuries. In this book Rosemaling is taught with a new trend setting method showing how you can recreate these traditions in painting. These teaching techniques are developed by the author's more than 30 years of teaching Rosemaling and other mediums, both in Norway, theFarEastand the USA. This includes 9 years at the Norwegian Folk University and 8 years in her own studio in Norway. Joan Dahl is the only known American artist that for 17 years taught the Norwegian their own folk art..! Trolls are the names of the supernatural large creatures that live in the Norwegian woods and mountains. They are closely related to joetnene which are described in the old Norwegian folklore. The stories about Trolls are strongly flavored by fantasy. They are also in modern times part of the Norwegian folk poetry and fairy tales, but hardly believed in as anything else than fantasy beings. Joan has taken theliberty of making her Trolls a lot less scary than usually portrayed. Many people even claim that her Trolls are kind of cute!

Rosemaling, an art form that is over 1000 years old, was copied by the roving Vikings in the 9th century from the Greek and Roman acanthus leaf. They used to carve this leaf on their ships as decoration and protectionfrom evil happenings. This is the earliest"Rosemaling" form known. Today's Rosemaling continues with the characteristically complex curving and interfacing of the organic decorations of the Viking Age. The three most prominent Rosemaling styles are Hallingdal, Rogaland and Telemark.

With the loss of the original Master Rosemalers of the past, there is a lack of good sources of instructions in the homeland of this beautiful art. There are no major teaching institutions available anymore. Several decades ago there used to be a Rosemaling School in a place called Sand in the southern part of Norway. But there are no major educational institutions available anymore or proper places to display the art work, except for limited space in a few museums. The Norwegian authorities are! not supporting Rosemaling as they do with other art forms.

The US has become the adopted homeland of Rosemaling. This started with the mass immigration from Norway in the second quarter of the nineteenth century when also many Rosemalers moved to the New World. Much credit for this growing popularity must also be given to the great Vesterheim Norwegian-American museum in Decorah, Iowa. This is the US cultural center for priceless Norwegian art and heirlooms from the days of the first emigrants and up to modern times. Joan Dahl's art work is on permanent display there along with the other treasures.

One of the favorite objects of Rosemaling in Norway, was the storage trunk. This piece of furniture became the standard luggage of the immigrants. As a consequence, examples of Rosemaling came to America in even greater numbers than the painters who produced this art. In the past, the connection between Rosemaling and America was largely due to historical circumstances. Today, a much more significant relationship is being established. The revival began with the immigrant groups, but soon attracted the attention of the broader American public. Rosemaling is now found in adult education programs and arts and crafts businesses all over the country. There are now many more Rosemalers in the US than in Norway!
