The Chunkle Stories


HEDWIG MARIA.....

During my year in China (1998) I had little to do other than draw. It was good for me. The art stores in SinZhin had an enormous selection of books on western art, and it was there that I discovered James Christensen. He taught for years in Salt Lake City but is now retired. (now that I need him!) He paints fanciful, surreal places with people wearing the most outlandish High Renaissance, over-the-top clothing. I was so impressed that I had to try one of my own. Not too bad for a first shot, but scarcely holds a candle to the Master.

During this time and during this drawing, I began to formulate what the Bavarian Von der Chunkle family would be like. They are being captured on paper as you read this. My premier lady, Flora, is in Bavaria matching wits with this ancient, reclusive family in Book Four: "Nine If By Night".
