This Week at Emily Lupita Studio: Fireworks

This week I finished a new painting in my Japanese kimono series. This one is called, “Fireworks.”

2-1 Fireworks Kimono

This painting reminds me of the excitement I felt as a little girl in Iowa watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July each year & also of the amazing fireworks I saw at the summer festivals in my adopted hometown of Miyakonojo, Japan.

6-2 Fireworks Kimono Black Circles

These paintings are part of a book I’m working on titled Long-sleeved Kimono that will feature haiku about Japanese culture along with my Japanese kimono paintings.

    I love the way the color of the fireworks reflect on the clothing!
