When up came a blackbird and pecked off her nose.

amazing. I think this a first for illustrating that verse, and the shock value is fab. (btw, tiny, is it usual in your universe to be weary rubber gloves to hang out the laundry?)

I had to google the rhyme to see what was going on here. Would make more sense if you'd included a blackbird flying off with the nose. As it is, it's really just a freaky shot that is really disturbing to look at. Probably doesn't help that I'm a bit traumatized because I have seen a lady with no nose (my guess is drugs)... it was scary.

Terrific idea, well set up and I like that the processing pushes it a bit but not too much. What a homely maid! Voted earlier.

Voted earlier, coming back to comment.

O.k. I have to say that this is an accurate capture from a line in the rhyme but nonetheless the imagery of a missing nose is a rather disturbing to look at for any length of time. That wide open mouth in a bawling scream of pain is a right expression for action of that line. I only have one suggestion/critique that I can offer right now to strengthen the connection of the imagery to the nursery rhyme. I think it would strengthen the image if you had included a black bird in the top right corner flying out of the frame.

The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes;
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

Never got that far before...
