A foreground cluster of bold colored orchids boasts their blooms, while a quieter cluster in the background, though not direct, creates a depth of field allowing the artist to manipulate positive and negative spaces. These orchids merge off the canvas. While strong in their appearance, they entice the onlooker into discovering that their strength lies within their delicacy. Tom continues his bold freedom in choice of color in his imperial koi paintings and purposefully balances this color with the action created in the water as a result of the koi’s movement. As one observes these koi, there is no doubt in the onlooker’s mind to where each of the koi is moving, thus completing the koi’s graceful movement.
