My friend Ruth sent me one of her paintings that she says was inspired by a scene in book 2. It’s gorgeous (like Ruth!). So much color!
So I had to tell her that I started on book 3 (about 5K words in, but I think I have to get beyond a certain point before I know if this will stick. All exploration right now). A tiny amount of crazy since I’m not done editing book 2.
My daughter’s 11-year-old friend, Tatiana, suggested the title for my book:
The Biggest Adventure in the Littlest World:
The White Goose
and I like it! The other option was The Dome of Tubes, which would have been a seriously hard drawing (I may still do that one, too).
She gave me this lovely sketch two weeks ago, thanks Tatiana!
I read here how this snow globe above was constructed and had no idea Walter Martin and Paloma Munoz used clay which was then fired. I used Sculpey for this and this, and had the worst time making those trees. Sculpey is hard to begin with, then it gets really soft but retains a springiness which I find difficult to work with, but that quality was really useful for the delicate parts.

I wish I could have one of these made for The Biggest Adventure in the Littlest World!
