There’s really nothing special about the kimono…or so “they” say — except for the art that is displayed. It speaks to a magic of reference, structure, location, and time — without which the article is unknown, unseen, uncommitted, and unending. So you might ask, “What’s wrong with that… it sounds pretty free to me?” But that is not the purpose or promise of the Kimono’s magical presence.
Perfection is it’s mystery, for if it is not—Why the Geisha?

STORIES are for the images above.
- Kimono #5 “Above the Sun” We learn to not look up into the sun because it will hurt our eyes. We learn that being out in the sun is good for our health. Within the rays is an energy transference that fills our soul keeps us aware we are who we are. Rise above… the sun.
- Kimono #6 “Mountains” The journey begins, a story to tell… mountain lined landscapes form an otherness of places to explore, the next adventure … Kimono

- “Golden Fountain” We are supported with strength, gold is strong in its wealth yet soft in its pure form… needed but not perfect… fill your life with it… Kimono
- “Hold on… loosely!” I’ve tried to keep the angst of life at bay at times but in the end it shows up in my art no matter how whimsical it looks there’s a depth of discovery and exploration to be seen… seemingly unconnected imagery placed for drama …. kimono… the search
