I came across this pair of watercolour paintings at my local thrift store recently. From the information on the back of the paintings, it appears both were painted by women named Joan (different maiden names and addresses) from a town on the south coast of NSW. No dates given, but they did name their works...


"Pink Posy"

These forgotten treasures are now being admired once again, taking pride and place on my living room mantle.

  1. So pretty. Makes you wonder who she was. Maybe the same woman, one painted under her maiden name and one later under her married name, as the styles look very similar...intriguing!

  2. It's lovely saving old treasures. I think because you do craft you understand the work and love that goes in to any piece. Pink posy makes me smile, its delightful.
