Love this little church. So peaceful and perfect. And a picnic! Who doesn’t love a picnic? Everything’s going great until the skunk shows up. Yep. A skunk. This is another illustration from my picture book about Melbourne. I suppose if skunks aren’t welcome, they should put up a sign. So, I’m presently constructing one.
My husband is a pastor and looks nothing like this. But when writing my picture book about the church picnic disaster, this was the image that came to me to draw. The congregation takes notice as the pastor steps forward with a simple solution to the problem. It’s not the suit or the hair that gives them confidence. Those (I hope) evoke a giggle. It’s most definitely his calmness in chaos that brings them to reason and follow his lead to a remedy. …Then again, it could be the bowtie.
