My Disney Dreams Collection celebrates great moments from Walt Disney films. I call these paintings“narrative panoramas” because each painting tells the entire story of the film in one image.
For my painting Pinocchio Wishes Upon a Star we see Pinocchio upon a hillside overlooking the setting of
his adventures. In the foreground we see Honest John, the symbol of temptation, and in the mid-distance we
see Geppetto’s workshop where Pinocchio was formed.We see Stromboli’s puppet stage with the maestro
himself holding court, and the seaport village in the distant where Pinocchio first learned of Pleasure Island.
To the right we see Pleasure Island, aglow with the festivities of another day’s merriment and Monstro the
whale preparing to engulf Geppetto’s sailing vessel. Butterflies and sparkles lend magical accents as the
Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket look on.
My prayer is that my Disney Dreams will make dreams come true for all who see these enchanted paintings.
