295U: Ring-Around-A-Rosie (Solved)

I am looking for a book I read in the mid-1960’s, probably young adult.  Tells the story of a girl who moves to Cape Cod? (some seashore region) to train with a famous tole (painting on tin ware, etc.) painter.  At first she just copies his designs, but he insists she should find her own muse.  One day she sees a group of kids playing ring-around-a-rosie and does a design based on that.

  1. Paintbox Summer by Betty Cavanna. No doubt about it. Kate Vale goes to Provincetown to paint peasant furniture in Peter Hunt’s shop.

  2. That’s it! That’s it! Is it ridiculous to feel such elation? It’s as though I’ve found a long lost friend. Thank you so much, Julie and Deborah. Hope I can return the favor one day.
