Chrysanthemum & Weeping Forsythia 菊と連翹

2216

Chrysanthemum. One of my favorite flowers. They have been loved by Japanese people since ancient times as you can see on many of Japanese old paintings and crafts. Everytime I see them, I feel some modesty of Japanese women in the old days. This time, I used Sunrise-mum that is a bit larger than fist and chose some Weeping Forsythia as the matching material. the branches have small yellow flowers which set off the bright pink and yellow color of two sunrise-mums. Hope you can feel some spring which is almost there:)

*Material: Sunrise-mum(Pink and Yellow Chrysanthemum), Weeping Forsythia(yellow)

*Container:Antique Hibachi(a small japanese charcoal heating appliance)

菊。大好きなお花の一つです。今では沢山の種類がありますが、昔から日本人に好まれていたようで色々な絵師によって描かれています。菊を見ると、昔の日本女性の慎ましさを感じます。今回使用したのは握りこぶしを少し大きくした位のサイズのサンライズマム(マム=菊科の略称)とその明るいピンクと黄色を引き立てるために黄色の小さな花をつけたレンギョウ。春はもうすぐそこです。

花:サンライズマム(ピンク、黄色)、レンギョウ(黄色)

器:骨董品の火鉢

This is one of my old work I drew Chrysanthemums.

昔描いた菊です。
