Third haiga collaboration with Romano san.
Anyone wishing for collaboration, send at least 20 haiku (usually only two or three become haiga).
"Ma", or space and time, plays important part in Japanese art, including performing art.
In sumi-brush painting, "Ma" is usually the area of white rice paper left unpainted. A blank space, but it is the space where views can let their imagination play. "Ma" could be a painted space, like in this haiga. Painted, but has very few visual elements, like shapes and lines, thus offering a playground for our imagination.
I will be out of town for a few days starting tomorrow. Monthly visit to Tokyo. Will not be able to update this blog.
