Haiga 185


Haiku by Carol Purington of USA.
Carol lives in a big farm in Massachusetts, but because of her illness she has been confined to bed for almost all her life. She looks out the window, observing the changing nature, and writes haiku. To make this haiga, I made use of Andrew Wyeth's famous painting "Christina’s World". I made quite a few haiga for her haiku. I then made print-outs and presented them to her for her enjoyment.
