SOLD! Lovely Swedish Folk Painting (02-19-11)

On one of my recent buying forays into the world of auctions, I discovered this very beautiful folk painting on burlap.
I knew it was special and wanted to know more about it. So I went to the an event organized by the Scandinavian Heritage Foundation, met some very nice people, and was was pleased to learn that it was a relatively recent (Ahem! Over 50 years) example of Swedish Kurbits painting from the Dalarna region of Sweden.

Most exciting, I found a buyer! We agreed on a fair price and were both pleased, he because he told me that his father was from Dalarna, and I because this beautiful painting went to someone who clearly appreciated it.
