I had a large piece of gorgeously draping, cognac brown fabric, perhaps silk. The fabric called out to be imprinted with Ginkgo leaves. Each leaf was care-fully painted with varigated shades of metallic textile inks. I created two Kimonos so far, one was already sewn, this one here I sewed. It has a black heavy organza lining. The hem is airbrushed with murky dark green dye. Metallic brush strokes add depth to the composition.
