Four views of Sky's the Limit (working title), my newest Original Finger Painting in my Koi Series.
The colors are a bit washed out for this sneak peek (that's why it's a preview!) due to the flash and iridescence in the paint, but come daytime I'll have a better shot when I prepare the painting for listing.
This particular koi painting was inspired by a commission I did earlier in my career, From Koi to Eternity, which was a beautiful triptych. I've gone with the "hang this anyway you like" feature of the inspiration piece, hence the four views to show how it would look in different orientations.
I had a lot of fun working on this painting (which actually is a revision of another painting that became the background), spurred on by the recent sale of two koi paintings, Unwritten Wishes and Change Is Inevitable (both are available as Little Beauties Art Cards) which left the Koi Series section in my shop rich in limited edition prints and cards, but with no more Original Finger Paintings! Can't have that.
It's nice carving out the time to paint again as I get a handle on my studies in counseling psychology. I've discovered a new rhythm--start and finish paintings early in the week when I still think I have enough time to finish my homework!
We've just passed the midterm and the session is coming to a close. Whew. I could use a break and more time at the easel!
Thanks for checking out my work.
