This week's theme: Koi

"Koi or more specifically nishikigoi, are a group of fish that are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens." - Wikipediea

Enchanting, mesmerizing and captivating are a few of the words we reach for when we describe koi. For almost 200 years koi have been bred for colour and kept for their beauty. Their popularity keeps increasing as our fascination with these fish continues to grow.

Art: SwirlyFish by Artist Elizabeth Fiedel
Based on a reference photo taken by Trevor Clark. The color and motion in the photo was the inspiration for this painting. Thanks to Trevor for allowing the use of his photo.
