dc 165: coat

Reflecting on the theme of this weeks drawing challenge,
"the coat", the kimono passed my mind.

I've used one of the images of  dc 159  as starting point for a
kimono design.

And found on the web this painters coat here

And also this: "coat" poem by Yeats.

A Coat
William Butler Yeats, 1916

I made my song a coat
covered in embroideries
out of old mythologies
from heel to throat;
but the fools caught it,
wore it in the world’s eyes
as though they’d wrought it.
Song, let them take it,
for there’s more enterprise
in walking naked.

Oh, that's lovely Eric. It reminds me of a kimono. Love the geometry and the red tones. Also love the painter's coat. I want one!!! I often put my hair up with my paintbrushes...because I can never find a ponytail holder when I need one, and then forget about it and walk out in public with a hairbrush sticking out of my twisted hair. With a painter's coat at least I would look more authentic! :D

imagine these kimono designs carried out in silk, i would love to wear them, on lazy summernights sipping a glass of champagne...
reading Yeats would fit in too :)
fine post Eric, xx

Eric, viewing the first coat I thought of African fabric and second the kimono. With the third image my question was "Does anyone really hang up their painting coat as neatly as this after a painting session?"

your work, I am always so taken by it. your kimonos look like skin; soft, strong and tender. I like that a lot. and for the painter's coat, you should see the apron I am wearing in the studio. putting it on, all covered in paint, it makes me feel like a real painter ;-)

Your coat make me think of relic, dear Eric. Yeats poem like a chant.

I think your coats come from a bygone era. I love that.
