between outage bursts, i spent a lot of the morning researching rosemaling, the beautiful scandinavian art of flower painting. reminds me of the berggren enamelware coffee pot my mom used to serve grape juice in every morning growing up. or the water tower for the nearby lindström. (i hear they have one in stanton, iowa too!)
i found equally beautiful images of kurbits, another form of scandinavian folk painting. i could spend hours in the basement of the american swedish institute in minneapolis just admiring the kurbits paintings they have there.
