What Are Theorem Painting?
Theorem painting (meaning painting with the aid of stencils) is considered traditional folk art. It was popular in the 1800s. Theorem painting is most often done on white velvet fabric, which gives the painting a soft, lovely depth. Fruit and floral arrangements are the most popular subjects, but scenes were sometimes done. Each painting is mounted in a handcrafted false grained frame, or historic gold frames.

Nancy - I am extremely pleased with both theorems. They appear better in front of me than in an internet image, although your website presentation is nonetheless quite good.. The colors are exceptionally vibrant as I had hoped they would appear. I viewed quite a few images of rooster theorems by other artists and your interpretation of this classic folk subject sets a new standard that other artists will probably now strive to emulate. The Bountiful Harvest theorem is marvelous beyond words. Regards, R. Lavallee
