Princesses in Golden Dreams

Ruth Sanderson paints really nice fairies and princesses. She’s also really nice herself; we worked together on an SCBWI bookstore event this fall.

There’s an exhibition of Ruth’s work at the Norman Rockwell Museum right now through February: “Dancing Princesses: The Fairy Tale Art of Ruth Sanderson.” That museum now owns the original paintings for her version of The Twelve Dancing Princesses. The opening reception for this exhibit takes place on Saturday, 7 December, from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M.

In addition, Ruth is participating in the Cottage Street Open Studios in Easthampton, Massachusetts, on Friday (10:00 to 4:00), Sunday (noon to 4:00), and Saturday, 14 December (10:00 to 4:00).

And for folks who can’t make those events, she’s published a 224-page hardcover book titled Golden Dreams: The Art of Ruth Sanderson. Below, courtesy of Fairy Tale News, is an image showing how Ruth assembled the painting above with sketches and photo references.
