" My current work, “The Koi Paintings”, are a series of work where I have focused my attention on the peace and tranquility of Koi ponds, I am striving to captured the essence of these lovely creatures in their habitat. By observing their color and energy and following the graceful flow of their swirling movement, I am creating dynamic and compelling compositions in this series. The resulting works of art are original and elegant." ~ Eiiott Ciampi
