The feesh, she is so coy, no?

Very sweet Ms Coops. The pond is so light, they don't seem to be quite mucking about. They look like they just recently met, and they are on best behavior, and all their world is bright, though not too sappy (sap green, that is).

In addition to the pattern on the coy fish, your water lilies are really nicely articulated. I like your attention to the details of import in this one. It says to focus on that which you want us to pay attention to. Nice one! ;):D:D:D:cool:

coops, is there a Chinese or Japanese garden near you? ...

Thanks Pete for your kind comments and yes that could be their names. Also to your question about a garden nearby noe there isnt but as you may tell by many of my paintings I love anything Oriental and have many such figurines about the house. Thanks again:)

Lovely work Katie, it evokes a very peaceful mood and I love how the Koi is breaking the surface of the pond.
Has they say in my old home town....It's a 'Cracking Job'. :D
