On Golden Pond

Here’s another Jackie Rabbit piece to kick off your Wednesday morning.  What I like most about this is that it isn’t a “standard” koi piece.  Instead of the koi being front and center as the primary focus, Jackie has made it part of an elegant scene.  The ripples flowing outward across the pond are a fantastic touch, as is the large negative space on the left side.  The whole design has a flow to it that defies the asymmetrical nature of the image and her color selection is fantastic.  If you’re ever in the Roanoke, VA neighbourhood, stop in and visit Jackie at Star City Tattoo, from what she’s sent into the galleries, you won’t be disappointed.

  1. im glad you guys like it :) the fish was the second part of the piece. there are plans to do an elaborate dragon fly or water nymph in the blank spot. i dont generally like “piecing” together larger pieces but my client is still formulating her ideas and so far it seems to be working ;p
