dawn (a haiga.....click to enlarge)




Thanks again to Geoff Sanderson for giving me this hand carved chop for my haiga, via his son in Japan who tracked down a master carver to make it, and thanks, also, to Laryalee Fraser who translated a scanned copy into different colors in Photoshop so that I could vary them when using. She just made this green one for the current haiga.(the actual wax impression is orange-red. Both of you are the greatest!

This is just beautiful: the haiga, the photo, the penmanship on the text. Wonderful!

Thank you! I was just thinking of you. I've been a lazy sloth with this cold all afternoon. Meant to send a note with a piece of music. It may be before I shut down for the night or tomorrow.

Not having the patience to fiddle about with little scraps of words, I don't do haiku and such, but your picture is beautiful Pris, and made me think of this ...

Hi Rae
I love your words. As for haiku, I think it's one of those forms you love or it totally has no interest for you.

The green is as calming as the ku and image. Super.
