No talking, please.

I'm painting today, so I am not talking to you. Actually, I am, because I am waiting for my background to dry.

Here is a painting I did yesterday and just listed in my Etsy Shop. We are all fascinated by watching koi; their colors, their constant movement. I tried to capture those aspects.

Koi Pond, 15" x 22", original watercolor painting

I think you did a great job painting "movement" in this. Do you sell any paintings? I enjoyed painting very much for fun. I used oils though which for my was much easier than watercolor. (You just gave me a post idea--thanks!) I ran out of places to hang them though so quit.

Yes, I have sales on Etsy and Ebay. Ebay is drying up though because of listing costs and search problems for buyers. There is A TON of competition selling art on line but it is still worthwhile, I think.

Whoa! I think you did capture the colors and movement of these fine koi. Captivating!

Hi Linda - Thanks for dropping by. This painting is gorgeous! I love the fluidity of the colors. I really have to say that you do this with all of your paintings.

Hope you're doing well. Take care
