Chaenomeles Superba

Today I bring you another watercolor painting.... I've been painting A LOT lately :)  Yeah!  This one really makes me happy and since it's tiny (4 x 6 inches), it didn't take very long at all to paint.

This flowered plant is called "Chaenomeles Superba".   The common name for it is  "Japanese Quince", but I think the scientific name sounds much more poetic :)

Don't you think it looks nice framed?  I don't know if I'll be able to let this one go to sell in my etsy shop... I may have to keep it for myself!


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Japan is the first thing that came to mind when I saw the first image. I love that your painting gives me the same feeling that I experienced from the surrounding beauty when I lived in Japan.

  2. That's beautiful Elise! Lovely painting - I'd be keeping that one for sure!!

  3. Beautiful! Would love to see it on a piece of fabric, for a dress, or all sorts of things. But it looks lovely framed, too.
