Mike Does Illustration Friday: "Poem"

From a collection of classic Japanese haiku, by Basho:

An old lake
When the frog jumps in
The sound of water

Interesting contrasts here: the bright and the dark, the complementary green and red, the dynamic, active frog and the quiet, static pool and land.

Love the vivid colors and the composition. I can almost feel the coolness of the water with all that blue and green.

The more I look at this picture...the more I love it! The frog is great. I can see him jumping...feel the movement...I'm waiting for the SPLASH !!!!!

Many thanks for the thoughtful and kind comments from focusret, ursula, chickengirl and susanlynn. I sort of felt this was a good way to face a new challenge or the dark unknown; jump in with some confidence.
