Most of the Koi paintings are based on the ancient teachings of Feng Shui. The number 8 is thought to be a very lucky number while the smooth circular movements of fish attracts good energy into your home or office. Often 8 colorful Koi can be found in the painting as well as leaves or groups of fish forming figure 8 patterns. Some believe the number 9 is lucky too and so an extra black Koi is often included in the piece. Having a black Koi is thought to be very lucky as they absorb any bad luck that's left!

Original acrylic on canvas paintings are made with the best artist grade, light fast pigments available and can be hung in brightly lit areas. The painting extends over to finish the edges so framing is optional. My 30 x 40" originals weigh a mere 2 1/2lb (less than a cup of coffee) so hanging is simple and easy using conventional picture hooks. Because part of the image is on the edge, the face dimensions are reduced. 30x40” = 28x38” and 18x22” = 16x20”
Acrylic giclée prints on canvas look very similar to original paintings and are the best type of reproductions available today. I finish each print with artist-grade acrylic and a special mirrored edge treatment that simulates the painted edge of the original. They are ready to hang as is.
