“Florence and Anne" are my grandmother and great aunt. I have vague memories of both women in the late 1960's when I was a small child. I remember watching them making hats and sewing their own clothes like they are wearing in the painting. I also remember them gently holding my hand and taking me for walks around Castlemaine and looking at the statues and gardens.
During the painting process, I was moved by the way they are holding each other's arm; a symbol of love between sisters.
