I have no idea what this is.  Opened the notebook, flipped through the pages, and there it was.  However, what it was has not survived translation.  Nonetheless, I find that I like it.  And so I share it with you.

When you draw a lot, sometimes it doesn’t matter what the subject is.  All the things that attract your attention all filter through your brain and some element of the attraction is diffuse.  You sometimes end up remaking all the various subjects through the longings of your own personality, and to an extent all the motifs are really just one motif.   So it does not surprise me that this “what’s-it” looks a little like the vase of flowers, but also looks somewhat like the koi.

The details of flower still lifes have some of that vertical presence.

And some koi drawings feature bits of blobby yellow, red and orange patches floating among streaks of blue.

So perhaps the drawing at the top is a Vase of Koi Flowers — or it is Daffodils Swimming in a Pond?
