two years old!

happy koi

This past week my blog turned two years old! I was in the midst of doing character studies for the new project but here is a little celebratory doodle. One of my most visited posts ever is strangely enough “the meaning of koi” which expounds on said topic – lucky, lucky fish! So I thought they were a suitable doodle topic along with a water lily… just ’cause. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!

UPDATE: Celebratory poem from Tom – thanks!!!

Beneath the water-lily’s flower
Lurk the koi in cooling bower
Where the breadth of sun-bathed pads
Shades the fish from all that’s sad

O happy koi in water clear
Bringing luck to all come near
Such subtle spirit-healing power
Gold beneath the purple flower

  1. Beneath the water-lily’s flower
    Lurk the koi in cooling bower
    Where the breadth of sun-bathed pads
    Shades the fish from all that’s sad

    O happy koi in water clear
    Bringing luck to all come near
    Such subtle spirit-healing power
    Gold beneath the purple flower
