Mixed Media painting - Ceremonial dress 1

mixed media painting "Ceremonial dress 1" (100cm x 70cm, acrylics, paper on canvas)


It is not always clear to me where my inspirations come from. In this case the idea of kimono patterns were certainly involved, and also a fascination with ceremonies in general (I was brought up as a catholic), the special state of mind involved with ceremonies and a wonderful a-capella concert with candlelight in our medieval church last weekend.

Inspiration is a strange thing. Hangs out everywhere waiting for us to grab it! Lovely piece.
