I've had Dala Horses on the brain for a while now, and I'm happy to report that I just finished up the last design that I'm hoping to make into a post card set, and perhaps also do as prints. What do you think?
I love the simple shape of the horses and how many ways you can paint them. Dala horses are a quintessential symbol of Sweden-- inspired by the simple toys carved for children in homes in during the long and frigid winters of years long passed, Dala Horses are at once simple, folky, and deeply meaningful to the people of Sweden.
The last image shown here says "Tack så mycket", which translates to 'thanks so much.' I'm thinking of doing other little greetings perhaps for a print. It would make a sweet wedding gift too, I think!
I'm finishing one last painting for another post card set (the Jane Austen one!) and then I plan on putting in a big order of post cards! If I did a preorder for these like I did with the Christmas cards, would you all be interested in that? Let me know!
Back to work!~
