Karma in Las Vegas.
It is an honor and a dream come true, to be invited to present my Koi paintings to such an inspirational and unique group as Karma International.

Koi is about family – as is Karma.
Both symbolize friendships and love, good fortune, luck, and courage. As legend points out, koi are symbolic of advancement, materially and spiritually. One of the primary reasons the fish is symbolic is because it is known for swimming upstream no matter what the conditions are. These fish are even said to swim up waterfalls. This is viewed as an entire show of power because they will continue to swim upstream as if on a mission. Koi are associated with perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose.

Karma’s creates a unique venue for a family of individuals, leaders, entrepreneurs, professionals and adventurers who individually possess these strengths. They are about sharing and expanding our sphere of influence as we create new and wider awareness in advancement of higher ideals.
Karma is an exclusive, private membership organization dedicated to connecting exceptional & inspirational individuals both socially & professionally. Karma gives unparalleled access to some of the most experiential events in the world.
In art terms, experientially relates to blurring the lines between, reality and fantasy. I like to think of it as a “blending” the lines between reality and fantasy. Remember when coloring inside the lines was what we were praised for? I believe it is when we choose to color outside the lines when we start opening up our experiential excellence of possibilities!
Karma is all about the sensations of an exquisite experience; it is when exceptional people gather with enriching ideas when all lives are enhanced. Friendships and ideas bond and what better way to live forward and give back as we go through life living in the moment and walking with those of like minds.
We’d like to take a moment to thank Bob Golden and his son, Robert Golden, VP of Membership for Karma International, for inviting myself and artist Beti Kristof to share our art with Karma members. We’re already looking forward to their next social.
