Mother Goose II

To Fetch a Pail of Water (inspired by the 1765 “Mother Goose” nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill) – Hand-distressed frame; hand-stained brown paper; rusted tacks; high-gloss liquid varnish; matte varnish; trio of desiccated water beetles; dried hydrangea with leaves; black paint; watercolours; cardboard; colour print of antique Victorian tintype; colour print of desolate well (image taken from the 2002 film, The Ring)

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.
