"Koi I," from the Cherished series of paintings, 16" x 20", acrylic on museum quality panel, depicting some pretty muscular goldfish. This painting is headed to ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan in September, and will be available for purchase there. Please email me if you are interested in it and I will be happy to make the necessary arrangements.
So, the whole time I'm painting Koi (and it was a conscious decision to break away from my regular subject matter), I'm thinking we choose the sort of water we swim in.
We cannot choose what we swim with (or against), but we can control where inside that school of fish (or sharks!) we choose to be and whether to tread water or move forward or turn around and return to where we started.
So it was these sort of circuitious thoughts that filled my head while I worked away.
And I'd love to paint more koi and goldfish! Let me know if you have a pond or bowl I can come photograph, or you can send your own (non-flash) pics to me.
In process pics of Koi I are on the studio Facebook page.
Thanks for supporting my art!!
