Special Note From David 
In 1998 my very good friend, mentor, and teacher Gary Albrecht VGM created a set of mixed colors for us shortly before he passed away.  He used the colors below in many of the classes I attended during my 17 years of study and friendship with him.  I present these special colors below, in his memory.  I have studied the colors of historical Norwegian Rosemaling in depth since my introduction to this style in 1977.  If you are interested in a more in-depth study of the colors, styles, and historical lessons for this beautiful style of painting, please see our Special Norwegian Online Course featuring both historical and contemporary Rosemaling styles.
