What is wrong with this picture?

While looking through the original art from Sing a Song of Sixpence, the book I dedicated to Maurice…I discovered this piece of art marked REJECT!

What did I not like about this art in 1984?
(I decided to do the art over when all I had left to paint was the bulldog. The bulldog was not the problem.)

So what is different?
Look in the book below and see for yourself.

Or…better yet…go to the Mazza Museum: International Art from Picture Books and see the original in Findlay, Ohio. It is an amazing place filled with original children’s book art.

…another note…I painted this book to Mozart…another lesson learned from Maurice…thank you…tcp
