Mother Goose Paintings

My sister is due to have her third daughter in early February. She has decided to do a Mother Goose theme in the nursery this time around and asked if I would create some painting for the wall. Of course, I would! Anything for my niece (and sister Winking smile). She gave me this swatch of fabric that she made some bedding stuff out of so I could copy the style and colors.

She also found some drawings she liked online of each story that she wanted me to copy. So I had the colors from the fabric and the settings from the online pictures to go by. I painted them on 12x12 wrapped canvases with acrylic paint. Of course, I don’t think the pictures do them justice but in some cases you actually can’t see some of the flaws in the pics lol.
I really hope that she likes them! They are supposed to be “cartoony” (is that a word??) and not painted perfectly within the lines, as you can see from the fabric. Here’s the stories she chose:
Mary, Mary Quite Contrary
Little Miss Muffet
Hickory Dickory Dock
Hey Diddle Diddle
Humpty Dumpty
Jack and Jill Went Up the Hill
Mary Had A Little Lamb
There Once Was A Lady Who Lived In A Shoe
