Thursday Challenge: PEACEFUL


Koi are wonderful. I am not big on goldfish, but the slender Japanese Koi are graceful additions to any pond. I looked up a koi color chart for them this morning and my favorites are the Hikari (silvery white), the Gin Matsuba (metallic red), Orenji Ogon (metallic orange), Platinum Ogon (silver), and the lovely Yamabuki Ogon (golden yellow). I would love to have a pond like this one in my yard some day. There are quite a few koi and goldfish paintings that I really like. Carol Sims, Todd Misk and Kendahl Jan Jubb have some excellent work of koi. Tsekoi has a ton of great artwork to browse on koi. I also discovered an interesting modern twist on koi in my painting search: koi kites! Last but certainly not least: Who could not love Matisse's 'Goldfish'? If you can't afford a pond of your own, get yourself a serene painting of these lovely creatures to gaze upon - or better yet, paint one yourself! I bet it will decrease your stress level just looking at it every day.
