I just finished the companion panel to the top one completed earlier this year.
One of my clients commissioned me to make a second one. He just loved the first one. The two panels were chosen to be given as a surprise wedding anniversary gift intended for his in-laws who live in California, and vacation twice a year in Kauai, Hawaii ( shhhhh – they don’t know it yet, it’s a year away 🙂 )
I tried to have as much fun making the second one as I did with the first, keeping that freshness, and allowing each painting to work off one another as a pair. I like the view from above, looking down on the active koi.
He was thrilled with the outcome – his comments were: ” they look GREAT together. You did a beautiful job of putting the two of them together. ”
