Hi all.. Just finished another painting that created its self. I started out with a simple reef at the bottom of a shallow bay and then thought it would be nice to add some fish in. I wanted a statement fish and thought the blue Surgeon fish would be a good one. There are many species of Surgeon fish , mostly found in Hawaii, especially found while snorkeling in Hanauama Bay. Surgeon fish are called that because of their spine at the base of their tail that when startled can extend out shaped like a knife. They are mostly vegetarians and some of the species can get up to 25" long. I hope you like this one, being a larger painting 40" wide, it makes a nice statement piece. See more information , go to my site and see description of the painting and pricing.
