Haiga 544 Mizuhara Shuoshi haiku 3
Haiku by Mizuhara, Shuoshi. Artwork by myself.
After reading the haiku, you might think "So what?". Well, I thought the same, too, at first. After a while, however, I returned to the haiku again and again, and came to like it. I guess you do not really need to dig into its meaning, but rather let yourself relax, like looking at the sky with blank face and just feel the scene.
As for this haiga, I drew with crayons like a kid, not contemplating anything philosophical, simply enjoyed the act of drawing and coloring. Later I did some digital manipulations to make the haiga look like a fresco painting.
I will be out of town for a few days, starting tomorrow--my monthly visit to Tokyo. The next posting on this blog will be after my leave so stay tuned, folks.
