Twists and Turns

So, every once in a while you get a kick in the pants as an artist. My kick came when a few days ago I discovered the artwork of painter Terry Gilecki.

This amazing artist shares my affinity for Koi and the Koi Pond. I have created quite a few mini illustrations of my favorite subject, but when I looked at Terry's work I realized how much further I could push myself.


2.5 x 3.5 inches.

This is the first piece I have created after seeing Terry's koi paintings. I really think I have pushed myself on this compared to my previous work. More depth, more light, and I just love how it turned out. I cant wait to get to work on the next one.
