It is a special joy to do critter paintings of dolphins, koi, giraffes, sea turtles, birds and butterflies.
Sometimes I paint with oils and other times i do watercolor paintings.
When I grew up my parents had a tropical fish
business with numerous outdoor ponds.
The fish would swarm around
when we fed them. My mother had been to a Gary Jenkins painting class.
She told me his idea to paint the koi in a circle. It was a great idea because that is the way they feed.
Koi fish come in a large variety of colors, so “Koi Feeding” made a colorful painting.
My husband said, "They just ate Jiminy the Cricket. And the one with the white head is the ring leader."
