This is a great example of hand crafted, American-made artwork. We have found a skilled artist doing one of a kind pen and ink drawings. These drawings are drawn on oak wood – the camera can never pick up the true detail of these very interesting pieces. This drawing is titled “Shortspine Boarfish”. The item measures 11 1/4 inches X 12 inches. This Shortspine Boarfish drawing is artist signed by Russ Orme.
Boarfish, (family Caproidae), are any of six species of fishes (order Zeiformes) characterized by red coloration and a laterally compressed body that is as high as it is long. All six species live in deep marine waters, occurring in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. The two genera, Antigonia and Capros, are placed in different subfamilies. A typical species, A. capros, reaches a length of about 18 cm (7 inches).
Boarfishes typically have three anal spines that are completely separated from the soft rays of the anal fin. When viewed from the side, boarfishes appear almost rhomboid, or diamond-shaped, owing to the angular profiles of their backs.
Besides this Shortspine Boarfish drawing, we have several other fine pieces of nautical and fish artwork in this category. Simply scroll up or down the page to view the photos and descriptions.
Just one piece in stock – you will be shipped the Shortspine Boarfish drawing shown in the photos.

The “Hooper’s Island Draketail” was named after the small island located in the lower half of the Chesapeake Bay on Maryland’s Eastern shore. In the early 1900’s, when the internal combustion engine first appeared, watermen were trading the sailing rigs for the engines and the local boat builders were looking for new ways to build better and more efficient workboats. One such builder noticed the torpedo boat destroyers pass by his home, and he thought that the hull design would be good for a workboat. He copied the hull design and built a boat with a V-bottom. The boat was fast, good looking and because of the narrow beam and sleek lines, it was relatively inexpensive to build.
The design caught on and the boats sprang up everywhere. The boat acquired the name “draketail” because the stern resembled the back of a duck’s tail. A few years later, a new box stern type became popular, and the draketail became old fashioned. Eventually, the full name was shortened and now most people only know them by the name “ducktail”. Today, not many of these beautiful boats exist. But through the passage of time, the boat has become a classic.
