Many years ago when we lived in Ashland, KY, we build a goldfish pond which gave us many hours of pleasure and provided inspiration for some of my work. Now that we've moved to Lexington, KY, we no longed have a goldfish pond. It's s definite on my "to do" list for this spring and summer!

 Water lilies started blooming in June each year.

 My goldfish had new babies each year. The babies are black when they are young and very hard to see. It's fun to watch them developing color. I used pictures of my goldfish to create silk fusion pictures. "Water Dance" 24" x 24". Silk fusion on hand dyed cotton.

This picture isn't great. Photograph error! "Convergence" 33" x 40". Silk fusion on hand dyed cotton.
