Blossoms Falling Gently to the Ground


Blossoms Falling Gently to the Ground

This is the tenth in my ongoing kimono series (see blog).  I thought it was to be the last but the series continues to grow beyond this one.  The procedure on this one got a bit complicated and involved melted wax, ink, watercolor and embellishments of gold and red papers.  As it started to come to completion a line from a haiku came to mind and became the title.  In some of the final days of working on it there was yet another mass shooting somewhere in the country and I really wasn’t sure if the red papers were representative of the gentle blossoms or were drops of blood.  This kimono has a rather somber tone.
