Koi Pond 9 x 12 oil

The August theme for Girls Just Wanna Paint was "water".  Hmmm.  I love the water, salt and sea.  I decided to explore a different take by painting my friend's koi pond.  What an interesting puzzle.  The challenge of showing what's above, what's below, what's reflected, and what's next to.   
See the rest of our challenge paintings here.

As always, thanks for looking.  You know I love your comments.


  1. I think I'd have been just as mesmerized by the movement of the plants beneath the water as the fish! Nice work, Jody!

  2. I love the free style and movement of this painting. Wonderful job.

    1. Thanks, Shelley. Glad you found my blog... and it was fascinating to paint this moving target, much like painting waves as they crash along the shore.
