Only 500 “Rambutan Night” illuminations each of four sizes (three featured here), independent of the words used, will be made from the original 6.5”x9.75” colored pencil and gold illumination of the same name. ~ I lived in Japan for a while & had the pleasure of seeing some traditional kimonos. It stuck me how layers of cloth with seemingly very different colors & patterns worked so harmoniously together. Such memories inspired this color pallet which first had mulberry & finally gold around the star. © Bridgette K
