Umeko by Margaret

Umeko

Acrylic on heavy paper.

She wears her pink kimono
decorated with green
in honour of her love
never blossomed to red
Pink is her colour
mild, the safer side of wild.
Pink is romantic and disarming
of all colours compiled.....

Tried to be looser with the brush..well made the background:) Just had to add a touch of bling :))
