Mrs. Trowbridge spent considerable time writing witty verses for her children and, later, her grandchildren. You'll note she abandoned her painterly style and used a simpler line and wash method for illustrating her verses.
She wrote in her journal that verses would descend upon her at the most unusual times; in the theater, while having tea with friends, or while preparing dinner. She would even be awakened in the middle of the night with a verse that would come to her in a dream.
