Annette Makino captured the playfulness of the wind in the cherry tree in this beautiful haiga painting.

A haiga is a brush and ink painting done to accompany a handwritten haiku.  Start by writing your own haiku, or get inspired by reading the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational 2012 winners, then illustrate it.
