Blue Uchiake Kimono
by Stephanie Rew
Oil 120cm x 100cm

Entered in: 6th Annual Competition Month #3 - February 2012

Judge's Comments: The composition drew me into this painting .To take a subject , In this case a girl in a Kimono , that has been done many times and make it unique is an accomplishment . The red interior of the sleeves mimics a shape of wings which ties narratively and visually into the design embroidered on the kimono depicting birds in flight . I love paintings that are well executed and simultaneously give a hint of a narrative. - Michelle Dunaway
