I started another koi pond at the secret bunker studio. This one is darker from the dark blue of the paper on which it’s drawn. In the past I have sometimes used lines from poetry as titles for pictures. I decided to use lines from Paul Squires‘s poems for the titles of the koi pictures as a remembrance of this great poet whose untimely death occurred on July 27th of this year.
The title for this picture “dancing to wild open music” comes from a line on page 33 of the first edition of The Puzzle Box.
These dance to music that only fish can hear.

He’d love your titles! Did you know that whales sing to each other over very long distances. Your painting is beautiful. The blogger Ramblings of a Medicated lady has posted a short interview she did with Paul http://medicatedlady.wordpress.com/2010/08/06/repost-in-memory-of-paul-squires/
I love the reflections and distortions in your painting, maybe coming from the photo. it has a curvature, very nice.
And the title…ah! and ahhhh!
It does have a curve. I didn’t see it until you pointed it out. Not sure where that came from, but I like it. Thanks for showing it to me!
