The Nutcracker Series--Part Two







As promised, here's the second installment of canvas models based on The Nutcracker ballet: the Waltz of the Flowers, Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy, Chocolate, Snowflakes and Fritz. I won't tell you which of the 12 is my favorite--mothers aren't supposed to have favorites among their children!--but I'd be curious to know which one is your favorite!

They are all quite special but my favorite is the 3 ballerinas in their petal type costumes. Great job!

The ballerinas are my favorites, all of them. I love the 3 and 2 ballerinas more than the single one but they are all wonderful. But a dear friend has a granddaughter who is into ballet so perhaps that made me notice them more.

It's a fun series. I also particularly like Tea, Coffee and Chocolate.

They all have their own delights. I think coffee is very alluring and tea makes me smile. All of the ballerina's are delightful but those two snowflakes particularly melt my heart.

The series has been a delight from start to finish. Thank you for taking me to the ballet.

Impossible to choose "a" favorite.. there's Clara, the Snowflake Twins, Mother Ginger, tne Nutcracker, and of course Fritz. See what I mean? Each is very special.

Thank you for sharing this great series.

I think the Snowflakes, but I also think if I came back tomorrow I would choose something else!

No fair asking us to choose a favorite...they are ALL so lovely!
Aside from "Swan Lake" (can I influence you a bit here) "The Nutcracker" is my favorite ballet.

This has been a delightful series to watch Anne! It's hard to pick a favorite, but the Mouse King stands out a little more for me - no particular reason. This series should sell well too. Good luck!

Can the set be purchased at the stores that you list? Love them all but Drosselmeyer is alluring on top of the clock!

Anne Stradal said...

I've started painting them already, Jane. Just ask your LNS to contact me.
