Kimono, Japanese, "Dried Abalone", Print of my original kimono painting, original kimono was hand painted, in Numura collection.

by loeyart

This kimono is very special. Used kimonos are often taken apart and used for alter clothes, wall hangings, or to repair another kimono etc. A Japanes fabric dealer, Nomura found the main part of the kimono. This man also located over 100 different pieces; however one tiny place in back is still missing. Rockerfeller tried to buy it ,but Mr.Nomura, saved it for his National Collection of 150 kimonos and/or parts. The theme is dried abaloni, which was often given as a gift in times past. When I did the painting, I did not try to copy exactly, just enough hints that you would recognize the original. This is a true kimono in that it has long sleeves. Interesting in that one could carry groceries or belongings in the sleeves, however, due to the length it had to belong to someone that did not work.

The print is on archival paper that is about 7 x 9 inches and sells for $10.00. It comes with a little statement about kimonos. I like to frame in a mat 12 x 16 or 11 x 14. The set includes all 8 images.

Folded blank gift cards 2 x 2 7/8 also come in a set with envelopes. They are too small to mail.. These could also be used for crafting or mount in a multi photo mat.

My painting style is watercolor; however I use Golden acrylics as if watercolor.
