To paint the last five consecutive Danish Festival murals, Luverne Dickinson Adamson has started out the same way.
She starts by reading the story the Danish Festival theme is based on. This year, it is
“The Flea and the Professor,” by Hans Christian Andersen.
Then, she reads the story again. And again. And again. Eventually, she really gets to know the story and can understand it in a way that helps her capture the essence of it to put down in paint, which she can then confidently display in town.
