Oil on Wood.
48" x 36" x 0.75"
This painting was done in a glazing technique with over 50+ layers built to achieve the depth of this image. The koi evoke a curiosity to the viewer and are swimming up coming to the surface to be fed. In some cultures, koi are auspicious for bringing luck and prosperity. Hence the name, "Prosperity Koi." Some of these fish are still alive and well at my uncle's ranch.
