Escape with Koi

During lockdown, I was having a hard time finding an escape from the mundane routine so one day I came up with the idea that to relax I would paint myself a pond of koi fish. Koi fish remind me of the more relaxing things in life and they represent perseverance for Buddhists. The picture shows me in my bedroom with koi fish representing my escape while staying in my room.
