My Koi Pond

Well, I have not posted in a life time it seems. Sorry. I am still working on my Master of Fine Art Online at the Academy of Art University. So far it has been a 6 year adventure. I have 3 more classes to go, which means I will finish up my degree May of 2013.

Last summer I was painting my Koi pond which accidentally became a water lily pond with no Koi to be seen. Well, 3 weeks ago I began cleaning out the pond and realized that the stems of the water lilies were as large as my bicepes and not easy to remove as they were 5 feet deep and completely filled the pond. No wonder I could not see the Koi!!!!! Last night I finally got to the bottom of the pond!!!!!  Today I will patch a couple of small holes and refill the pond. My fish need to be back in the pond ASAP as this weekend is supposed to be hot. No paintings in the past 3 weeks....just pond, next week I will be back to painting and my "Still Life Class". I am excited!
