SPC: Self portrait as Koi

So I have decided that all of my SPC's this month will be of things and experiences that inspire me for that particular week! I think that this is a fun way to get to share the non-art related adventures we get up to! I mean, that could be me . . . if I was The Incredible Mr. Limpet!

This weekend my husband and I went on a Pond Walk around our area. He is itching to build a pond in our backyard and we saw some amazing water features, as well as incredible homes!

This particular house had an amazing pond and so many fish! Some were HUGE! Just amazing! We were allowed to feed them lettuce and they all clamored over each other to get a nibble. It was totally surreal!

Hi Anonymous-Only bummer thing about the Pond Walk was that it was the same day as Felt Club, so I did miss this months. I was there in June. Check out Creative Swoon for some pics of that months event!
