The Land of Snowflakes

It truly is a Land of Snowflakes here on Cape Cod this morning--not just outside my window, but on my computer monitor as well!

The next canvas I'll be working on from the series inspired by The Nutcracker ballet is from Act I: the Nutcracker has been transformed into a handsome prince and offers to take Clara to the Land of Sweets. But first they must travel through the Land of Snowflakes, where they are welcomed by the King and Queen.

These two little snowflakes may look a bit plain right now, but I'm hoping to add some twinkle both to the background and their costumes before I'm finished--so do join me as I watch the snow fall!

I can already see them dancing! Having studied ballet when I was young (a very long time ago) I know these positions and what their legs are doing - you've done a lovely job, as always.

Delightful - and very evocative of the ballet itself!

I love the design of this one, too.. eager to watch you bring it to life.
