Koi Shadows

mixed polage art media, AP, 30"

For years we had a koi pond in our entry way. The fish grew from just a few inches to over 18 inches in length.  The eventually outgrew our small pond and we found them a larger home.  I miss them. I loved watching them win in and out of the complex shadows cast on the surface by the surrounding vegetation.
