From deb Clarke;
WHAT KIND OF FISH IS THIS?
found it in a tank at the Seapocket Lab of the Gloucester Maritime Center
. A simple google search identified the image as a grunt, my Audubon field guide identifies it as a Porgy.
I’m gathering this information for a new body of work based on fish that I have not painted before. Some of the new paintings will be of favorite aquarium fish that I have lived with. Others will be new encounters through tidepools, my visit to the Maritime Center, the Boston Aquarium (a visit is next on my list). The artwork will exhibit up in Maine in the New Year. to see my progress subscribe to my blog:
