Koi

It always interests me just what an artist will find fascinating and want to paint, sculpt or draw.  For me, at this time, it is images of koi fish.  I am creating fabric collages of abstractions of koil fish, trying to capture their movement and color.  The biggest challenge to doing fabric collage is figuring out how to present them.  I do not want them hung as wall hanging, yet putting them in a frame under glass seems to dimish the tactile effect.  I think I have figured out a good way to present them but need to find a woodworker/carpenter who is willing to learn a technique of japanese joinery.
