A golden water dragon explores a koi pond and discovers some new friends. This is personally one of my favorite works and I’m so glad to finally be able to offer prints so you can enjoy them as well!
When I started out to create this painting, I was just getting back into my craft after period of mourning following a tragic death in the family. I was seeking some peace to the turmoil I had been experiencing nonstop and inspiration for this painting came to me as I began to lay down the first layers of color. The idea comes from the Chinese myth of a determined koi fish who after much perseverance and adversity managed to swim up the impossible currents of a mighty waterfall and reach the realm of the gods, who rewarded the fish by turning it into a powerful golden dragon.
This story resonated with me as I too had faced and survived much adversity recently, and this painting was the first of many I am creating to bring healing to my soul. I have received compliments from those who have purchased this print on how much this art piece helps them unwind after a stressful day, and one fan even told me that my art “heals her soul”. To this day it is the best compliment I have ever received and I hold onto those words when I sit down to paint, for motivation and inspiration.
This painting was originally done on 8×10 mounted canvas using acrylics, however you can have the option of owning a much larger version!
