Day #21 of What’s in My Drawers.

Fluid and peaceful, my koi pond continues to be a place of refuge. This was one of 3 or 4 large paintings on paper that I did when we first moved into our home several years ago. Finding a house with a koi pond and gardens closed the deal, and made the transition with two sons, a rabbit, a cat, a mother in law and a tractor trailer full of stuff that much easier to do.

My koi paintings are as much about what is happening below the surface as they are about the beauty, grace and resilience of the fish.
