Stabbur WIP by Melimaiel
Stabbur WIP
Well, first of all I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year.
I havn`t been very active on DA for a while now and I thought that I should do something about it. So instead of posting only finished artworks on my profile, I decided to upload WIPS and sketches as well. I don`t have a very good scanner for sketches and such, so I thought that taking pictures with my camera might be a better solution.
 
I drew those two motives as cristmas card decorations (which I never finished...hrm).
The wooden building on the left is a traditonal norwegian "stabbur" - a small  storehouse on a farm (mostly for food storage).

According to the Norwegian folklore each farmstead has a Christmas gnome living in their stabbur. The Christmas gnome brings gifts for well-behaved children. But if the gnomes are not well-looked after, they can play tricks on people. Some people put out a bowl of rice porridge sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon to keep their barn gnome happy, much like children today leave out cookies for Santa.
