Jenny's Sleeping Beauty

Jenny picked the colors for Sleeping Beauty and the fairies that follow her.   Jenny says that Aurora is in purple because when the pink fairy and blue fairy keep changing the color of her dress, it ends up purple!

"Jenny, as her favorite princess, Aurora, dances on the streets of Wilmington as she leads off the Azalea Parade with the cast of characters from Sleeping Beauty."

Jenny's Cinderella

I was excited to see how the pumpkin coach came to life using the new bright orange paint Jenny picked out to give me for Christmas.  This latest painting is also for my Ballet Series fundraiser for the Wilmington Ballet Company.

"Dressed in her Carolina Blue ball gown that she wore for her sister's wedding, Jenny twirls her way to the awaiting pumpkin coach.  As Cinderella, she leaves her slipper behind on the steps of Bellamy Mansion while her handsome prince runs after her."

Jenny's Romeo & Juliet

Our family has seen many plays in Thalian Hall over the years and several with our daughter, Lana, performing in various school musicals.  The balcony offers the perfect scene for the latest painting in my Ballet Series for the Wilmington Ballet Company.

"Jenny, as Juliet, longs to be with her Romeo as she sees him below her balcony on the stage at Thalian Hall.  Her family will watch from the front row as this historic community theater brings the classic tale to life."
