Christian haiga

Cold crisp morning carbon and water praise the Father - haiga

I wonder whether it is possible to create haiga (that is, suiboku painting and accompanying haiku) which is truly Japanese in flavour but also distinctively Christian. This is my first attempt.

Can anyone help me with this question: is it bad form to combine two or more of the ‘four gentlemen’ within one ink painting? And what of scale – should the orchid be much smaller than I have painted it here?
