Onward- Rehearsals & Sets

The KID cast
Princess K.I.M. The Musical is moving along...the cast is working hard in rehearsals under the guidance of Director, of Toby Tarnow. The pace will pick up as we prepare to enter the theater for rehearsals.  

Dance rehearsal with Bruce.

Grandma, Kim & Dad!
In the meantime, I am busy painting the sets. Below are some details of the Town Scene. Being 100% Italian, I HAD to include an Italian Market! My painting style matches the illustration style of my books in which I outlined everything with a purple line. My goal is to make the audience feel as if they are walking onto my children's book. As a children's book artist I am used to working size. This is quite a change for me and I'm loving it.
Look- Imported Pasta is on sale!
