I like the painting very much. Also the haiku verse. Aptly paired.

Brevity allows equal attention time to both pieces. I like that a lot. And while I look at the painting, the haiku verse is tumbling inside my mind. I note this only because I have a great dislike for giant verses accompanied by paintings. I find balance lacking in that case. It was a pleasant surprise to the Jim Nightshade typeface, as I was trying a similar one with italic nibs a few days back.

And your experiments with typefaces yield yet another good work. It’s perfect.
