painting of “8 koi”


8 Koi,  16×20 inches,  oil on panel

There’s a lot of surface experimentation going on in this image.   When I recently posted it on google plus,  many of my colleagues from art school weighed in with positive feedback.   That fuels my soul.


If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’  then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.  – Vincent Van Gogh
