I would have loved to have had a real Koi Pond..but with the weather conditions here it would not be advisable. BINGO!! I said to my self... why I painted one. Here is my completed inspired painted project. My company love to sit around the pond, while they visit. It is a great conversation piece. The fish are about 8-10 inches long.

    I have mine on the covered patio, away from the sun. Taking a chance in a sunny place, might fade my pond. I have had it outside for 3 years now.. Best part is, they will not freeze, I don,t have to feed them, they won't die, or be fish napped!
