    what do you guys think of this?

    I wanted to do something special for Frank's 50th Birthday, It is very hard to buy him anything, usually if he see's it and wants it he just buys it. So I had a friend of mine paint franks 4 favorite koi in our pond, I also gave my friend a picture of a waterfall, does anyone know where this waterfall is located? I gave Frank the painting last night, even though his BD is today, but he had to work so we took him to dinner and had cake with our daughter and grandson last night.
    Frank really loves the painting. thank god!!

    Hey, Nancy . . .

    that painting's a knockout (and so are the koi). A VERY impressive gift. Job well done!

    Happy 50th to Frank Don

    Nancy, it is very very beautiful painting - specially with the kohaku, it looks like a live fish to me. Happy BD to Frank.

    I married the same guy.

    What a wonderful gift! The painted koi look exactly like your real ones - which are stunning, by the way. Beautiful koi look as if an artist painted them in real life already. A painting is very romantic versus maybe some koi "glamour shot" photos......
