Sometimes, I like to try and conjure up memories
of things that I'd like to paint.
Odense Zoo used to have a marvellous koi pond that I'd gaze at
in a mesmerized state for ages at a time.
Here's a souvenir study of a koi, the idea of which I'd like to incorporate
as a decorative element in a portrait that I'm currently working on.
