I will confess to spending more than 60 mins on these last few pages - the background painting alone taking more than 60 minutes - but it's what I felt like doing. I have to give a big shout out to the AMAZING Pinterest boards of Jan Burgwinkle (which could provide me with enough inspiration to fill the rest of my days) & to the book (recommended years ago by Mati Rose when I first took a painting class offered by Mati & Lisa Congdon called - Get Your Paint On ! - the book is The Flowering of American Folk Art (available used in lots of places).
