"Painted prior to 1930. Painted in back room of old studio. Geranium, one Mrs. Mazanec gave me in 1928, and still owned by me and blooming in 1941. Exhibited in various places."
"Pale red, green, gray and cream India print. A cherry red single geranium in a tin painted hunter-green. The whole very perfect in textures. .....$450. Would be extremely decorative against your gray-green walls."
Painting still hangs above the fireplace in the home of the artist. It was one of the artist's favorite still life paintings.
This painting was exhibited recently at the Buckland Public Hall and a great granddaughter remembered the story of her great grandmother giving RSW the geranium in this painting. It grew and bloomed for at least 13 years.
