Koi Water Lily Pond Oil Painting

Inspired by a trip to the Arboretum in Wilmington, North Carolina, I painted the Koi fish that came right up to you.  They were swirling and swishing around the lovely water lilies in the pond .  The brightly colored Koi sparkled like gems as they danced around the water lily pads. 

I continue to be inspired by the glorious Water Lily paintings by Monet.    The pond scenes are so peaceful and serene, and this lovely Koi oil painting would surely bring a little zen to any home.
