Mother Goosed

Southport Press is publishing a book of artist interpretations of Mother Goose rhymes. It comes out in mid-November and only 1,000 copies will be printed. AND... Florence Parry-Heide is writing the forward.

So, Mr. Chet Griffith of Artworks and black moustache fame asked me to paint a little sumpin' sumpin' so I picked a rhyme and did a quick oil illustration.

It goes like this:

There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead;
When she was good, she was very, very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid.

Mother Goose didn't know any girls who had knots from not brushing, so this was the rhyme that most fit me.
