This hand painted Blue Marlin on rough cut cedar wood is part of a collection of hand painted fish that we have to offer. No two pieces are alike, and the attached photos could never tell you how great they really look.
This is a Blue Marlin that was hand painted with oil paint and then clear coated. The rough cut cedar board measures 11 1/4 x 47 inches.
We normally supply these pieces to restaurants, but now you can have one for your home or office.
Marlin fishing is considered by many anglers to be the pinnacle of offshore sport fishing, due to the size, power and elusiveness of the four marlin species. Fishing for marlin has captured the imagination of sport fishermen since the 1930s, when well-known angler/authors Zane Grey, who fished for black, striped, and blue marlin in the Pacific, and Ernest Hemingway, who fished the Florida Keys, Bahamas, and Cuba for Atlantic blue marlin and white marlin, wrote extensively about their pursuit and enthused about the sporting qualities of their quarry.
A lot of resources are committed to the construction of private and charter billfishing boats to participate in the billfishing tournament circuit. These vessels have the range, speed, and seaworthiness to reach distant offshore fishing grounds. They are often built to luxury standards and equipped with many technologies to ease the life of the deep sea recreational fisherman, including outriggers, flying bridges and fighting chairs, and state of the art fishfinders and navigation electronics.

We found Russ Orme on the Eastern Shores of Maryland. His Seahorse drawing is titled “Seahorse With Child”. This wonderful pen and ink seahorse drawing is done on oak and measures 11 X 24 inches. The seahorse drawing is signed by the artist.
This artwork is freehand style, so no two are just alike.
The technique of the pen and ink drawing is vastly different from that of any work the artists does. The work done with a pen is consequently very unique. By nature it is a much harsher and a less flexible instrument than either the pencil or the brush, even though pens have come a long way. A pen drawing has a distinct individuality, no matter what kind of a technique is used, fundamentally because of the manner of getting the various tones and shadows, which is different from that in the other mediums generally used.

This large carved snook piece was carved on rough cut cypress wood, this large Snook fish is a one of a kind work of art. It measures 32 inches long and about 14 inches tall. The thickness of this piece of carved wood is about 2 inches.
The common snook is an estuarine-dependent fish species. Within estuaries, juvenile common snook are most often found inhabiting areas such as coastal wetland ponds, island networks, and creeks. Despite being a euryhaline species of fish, common snook do show a tendency to gravitate towards lower salinity conditions in the early stages of their life. By being able to adapt and thrive in both high and low salinity conditions through osmoregulation, common snook display a high level of habitat plasticity. Common snook are opportunistic predators whose feeding habits indicate that there is a positive relationship between their size and the size of their prey, meaning that as the snook grows it feeds on larger and larger prey. Common snook have been found to occasionally engage in cannibalistic activities, though this behavior is rare. This usually occurs during the winter months when adult and juvenile common snook are in close proximity to one another within their estuarine habitats. This form of cannibalism where the juveniles are fed on by the adults is referred to as intercohort cannibalism. The adult common snook who do cannibalize juveniles most likely target them due to the fact that the juveniles may be the largest of the available prey, and are therefore more nutritionally efficient to prey upon.
