Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is a watercolor painting made in blue and black colours. The style of this watercolor is close to the Japanese one, but does not copy it. Fine details drawing and the transparency of watercolors give this work the elegance and sophistication.

Once I admired koi that were swimming in a quiet pond. The reflection of clouds on the water surface of the pond created the feeling that the fish were swimming in the sky, diving into the clouds. I gave life to this image in the artwork.

In the Japanese language, the word "koi" is a homophone for another word that means "affection" or "love"; therefore the fish itself has come to represent these concepts. It is regarded as the "divine fish", associated with heavenly matters and spreading happiness and prosperity wherever it swims.

I hope that this watercolor will bring love and harmony into your house.

The size of the painting is 27" x 19" (70 cm x 50 cm) in on acid free, 140 lb, cold press watercolor paper.

I sign and date this original artwork.
