Rhyme for Roses by Polly Jones
It's title is in reference to the page from a Golden Book Encyclopedia underneath the paint about Mother Goose Rhymes. I absolutely loved painting this one. It only came together when I put the top band of invented colorful wall paper. The roses and jar were painted directly from life as is my usual process. I like to combine observation with invention.
