Haiga 188

Haiku by Kakio Tomizawa of Japan.
Spring can be found at an unusual place.
For the shadow area, which is the key element in this haiga, I added a hint of pale color on the egg, and warm grey on the plate. I also kept the contrast in shadow area low. All this handlings contribute to the expression of Spring shadow, I hope.

Get an egg from the frige, get a small plate, go to the window, place the plate on the sill, put the egg on it, and enjoy the spring shadow yourself.
