November - Chrysanthemum on Citrine


Chrysanthemum painted on Citrine, the birth flower and birth stone for November.

This beauty is known as the stone of happiness, joy, abundance, and personal will. As winter begins to set in, this gemstone's soft golden hue feels like the light at the end of a long autumn tunnel, offering hope, renewal, and regeneration. The meaning of the November birthstone Citrine derives from the Latin word "citrus", a reference to its cheerful yellow hue.

All 11 other months have a second birth flower to represent it. November is the odd one out, having only one.  No one seems to know why but this makes the chrysanthemum even more special and lovely. These flowers are one of the most popular cut flowers in the world and carry meaning of friendship, honesty and loyalty. It’s also believed that having a bouquet of chrysanthemums will bring joy and good luck into your home. 

November babies are said to be honest, ambitious, trustworthy and loyal.  

This painting is A5, created using a mixture of acrylic, watercolour and pencil. Each painting in the set is finished in a beautiful double mounted, bespoke frame in navy blue by Anchovy and Oyster.
