Otherworld is based on the koi ponds of the Dallas Arboretum, where the fish are guarded like gold by the staff and protected from hungry marauders by land or air. I really felt like breaking away from the norm with this painting, and wanted to do something much looser and more free - a nod back to the old watercolor days, in more ways than one. Otherworld, as pictured here, is a vertical detail of the original painting, which you can see in its entirety on my Web site.
