Lycoris radiata

Lycoris radiata.
I got an email from my mom that Lycoris radiatas (we call it Higan bana) bloomed in the backyard this morning. Then I started painting it from 9.a.m. but the image doesn't suit for the beautiful morning.

This flower itself is simply beautiful, but this flower has many unlucky another names in Japan such as Hell flower, ghost flower, fox flower, etc. I don't know such unpleasant name was given, but I guess that it is poisonous flower.....
If you eat Lycoris radiata, only place you can reach is HELL. Be careful.

It fun to use the colors that I normally don't use, moreover, I painted it roughly.

Papaver Orientale

I've never seen Papaver Orientale. I know only Poppy flower, which is my favorite one!

Original image

I don't use Black for the background normally, and then I played around with it.

Chocolate Cosmos

One more Cosmos. Do you know Chocolate Cosmos? This flower is not only color like chocolate but also smell like chocolate! I came to know about 10 years ago, because my mom grew the flower in the backyard. The name is very unique and represent the flower's characteristic very well. The size of Chocolate cosmos is smaller than cosmos and the shape of the leaves between them is different.

Surprisingly, chocolate flower came over to Japan in Taisho era, ha!


One of my favorite flowers is Cosmos. I am normally attracted to the family of compositae like daisy and aster, and this flower delivers me the coming of autumn.

I painted this on my sketch book that I bought for myself as the new start in the U.S. as an illustrator. That's why I can't scan the image cleanly.

Also, I got this book only 50 cents at Church last Sunday. I was excited to have this book and paid as the price tag said, but I am regret that I should have paid at least $1... I will do next time for sure. ;-))

Oregon Seaside

Summer has gone, but the memory at Oregon beach still exists in my mind. Though I don't do much simple landscape, I try this as an experimental.
