These are paintings I worked on while writing the novel Thunderbird and the Ball of Twine, which begins with a woman seeing an unidentified flying object. We made a point, on a couple of cross-country trips, to stop at the Roswell UFO Museum, for the experience of it, and because my young son was at the age to be captivated by blow-up alien dolls and the exhibits. But the idea was the quest. The Little America painting, however, has to do with my novel Unending Wonders of a Subatomic World (or) In Search of the Great Penguin, though the quest of that particular book instead leads to Little America in Wyoming rather than the southwest. In fact, Thunderbird and the Ball of Twine has no action in west. The paintings were not intended to represent anything in the novel, but to complement it, just as "Girl with Little America Penguins" represents nothing in the Unending Wonders novel.
