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.

  1. Vern , this picture is beautiful but can I suggest you put the title outside the box under or on the side because it takes away from the picture and is hard to read.
    Great job on the tag post. I guess your right it's the first one that tags that gets it.
