Cicada on Willow by Ohara Koson, 1930 (published by Watanabe Shozaburo) Ohara Koson (小原 古邨, Kanazawa 1877 – Tokyo - Cicadas are elusive creatures. I love that in Provence hearing their melody means summer is here.
The owl has a lot of great texture. It is made with simple geometric shapes. The owl is still powerful in black and white. It's an interesting crop of the owl. I wish I could see more of the owl like his wings.
