Spain haiga series coninues, but let's have a little break.
Last night, I made some comments and wrote haiku for the posting made by Alexis Rotellla. She posted one of Edward Hopper's painting called "Automat"(one on the left side). I wrote two haiku inspired by the painting. Then a thought came this morning that other Hopper's paintings could be used to make a haiga which kind of tells a story. This is a new possibility for haiga. It could be called "haiga story board".
The other day, I chanced to see a Hopper show, a pretty large one at that. From the exhibition, I found for the first time that he had been an illustrator before being regarded as a painter of fine art. I then realized why he had painted so many scenes that connote some human story. So, poem, prose, haiku, all these can naturally be extracted from his works.
