Little bit of a lengthy title… lol
This piece came to me from the elder brother of a long time client and friend.

The Japanese coi, symbolizing masculine strenghth, represents him as a father figure, while the lotus, symbolizing purity and persistance through struggle represents his wife. The three lotus bud’s represent their children.

As an elder, successful brother with a beautiful family, this piece really resonated with me.
As a new father I love meeting people with more experience that show me what the future holds.
