Happy New Year

This was the image on my sister's Christmas card this year, but I think he makes a good New Year's Koi too, don't you? (It seems like he's swimming in confetti.)

I was impressed that my 4th grade niece had colored such a pretty carp. Then I found out that she'd actually drawn it! She said they'd had something to copy from, but it isn't traced.

I think we've got a budding artist in the family.

She did an amazing job for sure and maybe she can do some other drawings for you on this site?? Happy New Year to you and your family!

Absolutely!! Tell some rich art collector it's a "lost Monet" or Picasso, you could get serious jing! (Better still, she's an up-and-coming new artist, and they need to get in on the "ground floor" ;-)Happy New Year!

Wow! that is wonderful. She did a fantastic job! BTW, I liked your previous post too; the "critter cam".

You definitely have another artist in the family. That's a beautiful carp drawing. Quite impressive.

Hope you had a lovely New Year's Eve, karen, and hoping that the new year is a wonderful one for you.
