This dynamic small piece is alive with turquoise, sienna, gold and lemon yellow. Collaged canvas strips, embroidery, and deeply textured paper make it a piece you can return to many times to explore its textures, colors and reflectivities.

The design is influenced by the koi pond, where schools of orange and gold fish flash underwater while the water above throws light in quickly-changing patterns. Crossing this lively school is the ordering influence of the bridge, similar to a Japanese garden bridge.

Acrylic, canvas strips, embroidery and textured paper on 5” x 5” x 1.5” canvas.
