    Constance writes:
    "(As a child) Ole's job was the shrinking of woolen cloth used for the sturdy coats and trousers his father tailored. The cloth had to be submerged in water of varying temperatures, again and again, until the fibers were so tight that neither rain nor snow could penetrate. To the touch, the cloth seemed hard as leather"

    Later, he was carving roses in wooden keepsake boxes. Sounds like maybe the Sundsmos were more talented than your average Norwegians

    Ole Sundsmo grew up to be quite a talented and successful artist. He had a lifetime career of newspaper and book illustrating
