It was fun to dabble with Rick Daddario’s 30-day’s of Haiga prompt for today: “rice and/or seeds”. I thought I was behind, but just now realized today was the 8th – how fun to be on time. If you get a chance, I hope you check out Rick’s blog, A 19 Planets Art Blog 2010/2012 on WordPress – http://wp.me/SBwA .
In preparing this haiga I learned that the tradition of throwing rice was to throw wishes of prosperity. I also learned that it is a myth that rice thrown at weddings is detrimental to birds. So there you have it, you now know as much as I do about rice and weddings.
Have fun today.
