Happy Koi

"Koufuku" means happiness in Japanese. I'm a very big fan of aquatic life, and frequently find inspiration to paint from it.

This painting features a soft-textured background of aquatic blue colors, with two beautiful koi playing blissfully in the water. Colorful plant-life highlights the bottom right corner, and the japanese symbol for "happiness" is painted on a plaque which adorns the top left corner of the piece.

This painting is 6"x12" acrylic on canvas. The paint is carried around the edge of the canvas so that it may be hung directly on a wall.
