Haiga 485 Peter Newton haiku 4

Haiku by Peter Newton. Artwork by myself.
I wanted to give the old key another chance to open something, and I thought making it into a haiga will open up the possibility.
For the drawing like this, I use sumi brush. Draw the lines slowly, letting all the small hand quiverings show. I feel that lines like these have warm and antique qualities.

It was pleasure working on Peter's haiku.

I am open to other collaborations so if anybody interested, send a batch of your haiku to me.

This made me smile...every house has a bunch of keys...nobody knows what it opens :)

Beautiful presentation, Kuni-san :)

Les clés, même quand ils sont inutilisés, demeurent essentielles.

Thax, Devika san.
Obrigado, Henrique san.
Indeed, the key is essential.

Good to see a haiga from one of Peter Newton's haiku.
