Obon Dancer



This is done in watercolor of a girl dancing at an obon festival. I don't know if young girls wear red kimonos, but I didn't think about it until after I already painted it red. I hope it is not inappropriate.

hi kimberly,

red kimonos are totally ok for any woman regardless of age - the kimonos with long sleeves (furisode) are only worn by young unmarried woman...though i wore it for a photo portrait when i was 34 years young :D
