Pen this Painting


UHTS collected works

For this lovely sumi-e by UHTS resident artist, Elizabeth McFarland from Germany, an interesting haiku by Anthony Q Rabang from the Philippines. It coincides nicely with the columbine blossoms turned down, just as the student's head must be while studying his lessons. Ever so subtly composed so as not to overwhelm the artwork, just enhance it, which is what a good collaboration of poetry and art should accomplish for a fine haiga such as this. Congratulations Anthony!, and thank you Beth!
