Painting these little elves was a wonderful trip down memory lane for Jo Sonja. The very first face that she was taught to paint by her first teacher was an elf’s face for the Scandinavian Nisse. They didn’t have wood pieces back then, so they painted them on short lengths of narrow flooring. Here this delightful pair are done on mitten boards.
