This is absolutely beautiful. The colors in this painting are so genuine and the way she used her brush really added a perfect flow to it. They are not structured and defined, but rather smooth and elegant, enough to form a picture of a creature that is the opitomiy that is the concept of peace. The way the water flows down gives the audience a sense of peace and clarity. In my opinion, I feel like the koi fish symbolize what it is like to relieve stress and all negative aspects of life.
