Inspiration from the pond...

The word "koi" comes from the Japanese, simply meaning "carp." It includes both the dull grey fish and the brightly colored varieties. A homophone of koi means "love, affection" and koi are often used as symbols of love and friendship in Japan.

Koi have many different colors. Some of the major colors are white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream and it was this magnificent play of colours in the pond outside Peter's studio that have inspired these two magnificent artworks.
