This tiny book is the dummy (practice book) of my “newest” project (in quotes because I started it years ago and then life intervened.) But the lapse in time has focused my thinking and I am happily back at work in my new studio in Spruce Pine, NC, near the Penland School of Crafts, where I now live. Instead of explaining all the leaps in this paragraph, we are just going to jump right into TODAY, right now, this instant!
In this 28 sec video you can see how I am inventing the background for the little girl’s room where the story takes place.
