Awesome! I love rosepainting (Im norwegian) and am thinking of desingning a sleeve for myself. Good job, missing a bit more tone to the swirls, but thats just a matter of personal tastes tho.

Being norweigan myself, you can rest assured that those are exactly the types of floral designs that are used. they are also often painted on chests and carved into wood furniture. It's a very prominent style in Norwegian history.

actually, I think what you meant is the Norwegian thing called "rosemaling" or "rosepainting" directly translated and it's usually used on furniture, not coffins, though I guess some use it there too :3

very nicely done^^
