I’ve (more or less-there are always a few tweaks in the end) finished the koi fish painting.
Title: A Mother’s Journey
Available for purchase
This painting has been a tough one emotionally. The ones that hit closest home, always are difficult to create. It took me a bit to realize that this is about me. I keep feeling compelled to make these koi fish in my work, specifically in the orange colors. After a little research I learned they represent mothers in the family. Each member of the family has a color representation. I won’t get into all of that though. If you’re interested you can “consult the mighty google”.
Just For Fun:
I made this! I still need to clear coat the base. I learned to solder. I need lots more practice to become skilled. :/ I am also collaborating on an idea for a second one. It is the same person who taught me to solder and answers all my dumb basic engineering questions and talked me through this piece. I won’t out you, but, you know who you are (James) 😉
