Haiku by Cor van den Heuvel (USA). Artwork by myself. The images that came to my mind when I was making this haiga were some melancholic painting by Edward Hopper,one painter my UH art teach urged me to look into, and some scenes from my a month-long tour on the mainland USA, which I did in the last summer of my college years. Backpack, greyhound bus, YMCA, Cambell soup, it was that kind of trip. I still have Kodachrome slides from the trip and look at them time to time, so the image like in this haiga came rather easily though the scene is 90% from my imagination.
