Don't Be Koi

My greatest work of art standing next to my painting.

On Sunday, I got to finally paint the koi fish pond that I have always wanted to hang in our living room. It took almost a full day to complete but it was totally worth it. The fish are symbolic of our family. The biggest fish being David, than myself on the opposite side, Ava being the bigger of the two small fish and Desmond as the baby fish. When Ava woke the next morning and saw my painting her exact words were, "That's cool mommy!" It was the best compliment I have ever received because A.) she is my daughter and I love her to pieces and B.) she is so brutally honest. She will always tell me the truth and she has many times about my cooking....believe me.

This is David and my favorite hobby to do together. He is an amazing abstract artist. Together our art hangs on our walls and it's a nice little reminder of our time spent together. When I look at a particular painting I can remember the fun times we had while creating it. It's like looking at a photograph of us and seeing memory that no one can see but us. It's something so special that I will treasure forever.
