Being Koi original oil painting

This is inspired by the Koi Pond at The Phoenecian resort in Scottsdale, AZ. During a visit there a couple years ago my daughters soaked up the sun while I watched and photographed the koi swimming the perimeter of the pond. Kind of like skaters in a rink...round and round.

16x20 oil on canvas

Thanks for visiting!

Beautiful painting! The colors and textures are quite interesting. I like how the color shifts from top to bottom of the piece. Your painting style is lovely.

Thank you for that book reference. I will definitely check it out!

Still here in ex-Phoenicia (Lebanon) :)

Truly wonderful - you capture the peace of the garden pool and the energy of the fish, circling and comnpeting - hoping the shaddows will feed them (pellets).
