Red geraniums seemed to be in my mothers garden where ever we lived. i painted these geraniums from my own garden years ago, found it in my reject pile of watercolours & gave it a new purpose...... .....these sisters both loved their gardens...... the map in the background is of the Cooma-Monaro district where they both lived for quite a few years after they were married (they married brothers from this area).
The next layer is a piece of floral linen, not sure how old it is , but it had that look, to represent their love of sewing.
They were very particular about their appearance, i remember lots of hair curling, making new outfits , straightening the seams in stockings & shoe cleaning was a big thing ......& beads. (raylee).
