When Mother Goose was a Young Girl


A rare glimpse into the childhood of a cultural icon....
Who knew she would be famous one day!
I found this little girl's picture in a midwest antique shop and recognized her immediately.
She now resides up north and has become part of the Shared Visions exchange.
The background is from an old garden illustration and the geese are actually 3 different versions of the same goose (from a vintage children's book), slightly altered in height and orientation. All elements played well together in photoshop.

Who is this Ann? She looks so familiar. Love the piece. T.

She does look familiar! But I may have misled readers when I said I recognized her. I meant that in my imagination I recognized who she would become in my collage. Her real identity remains a mystery.
