Spotted Drumfish - Juvenile 1

The juvenile Spotted Drumfish has to be one of the most enchanting fish I have come across on the Caribbean reefs (next to the seahorse, of course).

This is a painting of a very young juvenile with the extremely long dorsal and tail fins which flutter like twin black and white striped streamers as the fish moves along the reef.

This is the first of two acrylic paintings that I am submitting to the Miniaturia Show at the Kawartha Artists' Gallery and Studio.

This is a 4" x 4" original, acrylic sold unframed for $125.00.
