Koi Painting

Koi (acrylic on canvas) approx 16” x 32”
Original concept
Another concept – same canvas
Totally different concept- same canvas – dark & abstract
Taped areas and metallic silver spray paint.

I went with this one, when I took the tape off it showed this blue underneath – but wanted more of a focus on the fish.
Gessoed everything except the fish for a do-over.
Getting there…
This is probably my favorite – I kind of wish I left it here.

Just like my career this painting has gone through many phases and is a work-in-progress. It was made for the career area at the North front entrance. According to feng shui this area is guided by the element of water and the colors black and blue. Gold magnifies and koi fish are considered auspicious. Its done for now though I may edit further. The good thing is that I made the fish abstract enough to be able to hang “upside down “ or “right side up.”
