Out of my dreams

Fall Kimono

Success at last. I have had the idea for creating these wee silver kimonos for over 5 years I created a small book several years ago with kimonos on the covers and used moss and twigs and leaves from my garden to create texture plates allowing me to transfer my beloved garden into the silver and carry the feel of peacefulness my garden offers me. But I was not finished and have mulled around many different ideas in the last few years....never quite coming up to that jump for joy feeling I get in the pit of my stomach when I get a wild hair idea.   Well the wild hair hit hard a few weeks ago and  after sketching out my designs I stayed up into the wee hours working on one after an other till my eyes refused to stay open. So I relented slept for a while and continued. Here are 3 of the 4  kimonos

Spring is taking her time and is not quite ready for prime time but stay tuned she will arrive soon.

  1. Wonderful, success, can't wait to see the next piece. Esse

  2. Peg, these are wonderful! I really believe our best work sometimes comes in the middle of the night when our critics are too tired to mess with us!
