These cute little fish are painted on small deep edge canvases. They are 4" x 5" x 1-1/2", and can stand upright on a shelf or table. They make a nice accessory, or can be hung on the wall in a grouping. No frame required!
I've always been fascinated by the amazing colors and patterns of tropical fish, but confess that I don't know very much about them. So I had to do some research to find out what I was painting, so that I could name them correctly. I was surprised to learn that there are several different kinds of each species.

The tang fish that I've painted is called a Powder Blue Tang, and he has several cousins with different colorations. I love his bright yellow fin contrasting with the blue, and the wide white stripe behind his almost black head.
While I was painting the butterfly fish, I thought he was an angel fish because of his bold stripes, until I went on a search for identifying photos. Surprise! He also has many butterfly cousins of varying colors, and not all with stripes.
I hope all the tropical fish collectors and aquarium aficianados will forgive me for my ignorance. Being an artist and driven to paint the beauty of nature is a learning process in more ways than one!
