Artist's Description

Painted with Corel Painter 11
“Haiga are abbreviated paintings inspired by haiku (poems composed in three lines of 5-7-5 syllables). The term haiga literally means “haiku painting”: “hai” comes from haiku and “ga” is the word for painting. Haiku poetry was firmly established in the 17th century when its first great master, Matsuo Basho, made it his goal to elevate the form to a highly artistic, inventive genre. Haiku and haiga emphasize directness of expression and unpretentious observations of everyday things.” http://www.uam.ucsb.edu/Pages/Haiga_exhibition....
Painting of a fisherman in the sunset in vivid oranges and reds with a Haiku and Chinese calligraphy (don’t tknow what it says though :)
