NaHaiWriMo – Feb 11th

Today’s prompt is “the woods.” Inspiration comes from the recent massive snows and Hiroshige’s depiction of a rare heavy snow in the rural town of Kamabara (53 Stations of the Tokaido).

    • Thank you! I love the art of ukiyo-e, when Japanese artists turned away from the traditional subject of royalty to paint ordinary people and nature, and used the craft of woodblock printing to make their artwork affordable.
