Circles and Animals: Koi

Not all animals seem to lend themselves to this series but koi certainly do. This is the fifth piece in the on-going Circles and Animals series, and I’ve yet to decide upon the next animal to include.

(Previous Circles and Animals: Fox, snail, owl, crow)

Circles and Animals- Koi

Circles and Animals- Koi-3

Unlike the other ones in the series I’ve included two creatures instead of one in the same piece. It made more sense to me in terms of composition. The Koi is 12″ x 12″ and is made with two pieces of archival drawing paper within a wood cradle panel.

Circles and Animals- Koi-2

I will have time to return to making more pieces in this series later this week. Let me know if you have a suggestion for the next animal.
