The painting of the Koi Fish in my blog header is one where I borrowed heavily from a painting done by a brilliant artist named Gabor Nagy. It is 6' x 3' as is his, but my done in acrylics does not quite have the same magical movement or brilliance of colour of the original which was done in oils. I added lily pads in an effort to distance mine from his. I learned a lot from doing this piece, and as the saying goes, imitation is the highest form of flattery.This painting will never be sold or leave my family's possession.
