Koi in the Rain

oil on canvas, 2014, 36"w x 24"h

The koi in my pond become very active when rain hits the surface of the water, so the concentric circles that the rain produces are enhanced by the movement of the fish. In this oil painting I have tried to capture this high level of energy and the dramatic light and dark patterns. The vibrantly colored koi add a nice contrast to the painting. Even on a cloudy day, the effect of light on the water is always changing and intriguing to me. Painting from a photograph allows me to portray a particular moment in time.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
