Pool School

Yes I'm still alive, just not communicating...not intentionally, but business travels, summer and a deep painting/blog/facebook rut are the reasons. Hopefully I'm back with this latest offering which I started a couple of months ago. I'm happy that I left it for awhile, in that some improvements were made such as punching up some dead areas with floating leaves adding a little colour and interest. This canvas is going up in our home with the koi piece on my blog header going to live at my daughter Melissa's house. I'm only about a year and a half late on delivering her birthday present. She has always loved that painting so what else was I to do? I'm still tinkering with this piece, but I don't suspect any major changes to it. I just wanted to post something...anything!

  1. Une huile magnifique... Une oeuvre qui ne manque pas de puissance... vraiment remarquable!
    Votre fille pourra être fière d'accrocher votre oeuvre.
    gros bisous et à bientôt.

  2. Your fishes are beautiful ! I can understand your daughter wanting this. Glad you posted them.

  3. Beautiful painting Vern, the colors are amazing...lucky daughter to finally get this masterpiece. Glad to see blogging again!

  4. You've returned with a bang! Really beautiful work, Vern. I particularly like the floating leaves, and the gorgeous, fluid, abstract movement throughout. Exceptional!

  5. Just stunning... I love Koi and you do them perfectly ..

  6. Your daughter will love her late B day present of the header koi, Vern!
    I really like the one that's going up on your wall! Great flowing movement in the composition. Wonderful colors against the black BG.
    It's great to have you back, Vern...missed ya! :)
