    Saltwater Permit Fish Drawing by Russ Orme

    Free Shipping to main land US

    Click on the photo to see additional views of this Saltwater Permit Fish Drawing by Russ Orme.

    Russ Orme’s work is a great example of American-made artwork. We have found this skilled artist doing one of a kind “Pen And Ink On Oak” drawings in the Easton Maryland area. This drawing Saltwater Permit Fish Drawing by Russ Orme measures 11 1/4 X 24 inches. The camera will never pick up the true detail of these very interesting pieces. Be sure to click on the photo to see some additional close up images. This Saltwater Permit Fish Drawing by Russ Orme is artist signed.

    Permit are usually found in shallow, tropical waters such as mudflats, channels, and muddy bottoms. They are usually seen as individuals or in small schools; if approached when alone, they attempt to escape human interaction, but if approached when in a school formation, they become aggressive and can deliver dangerous bites. Although permit are found close to shore and even in some brackish areas, they spawn offshore. Young are found usually in the surf zone where plenty of small invertebrates are available for them to eat.

    Permit are found in the western Atlantic Ocean from Massachusetts to Brazil, including most of the Caribbean islands

    Pen And Ink Shortspine Boarfish Drawing On Wood

    Price: $90.00

    Click on the photo to see additional views of this Shortspine Boarfish drawing.

    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.

    Draketail Workboat Drawing

    Draketrail Workboat Drawing by Russ Orme, click on the photo to see additional views.

    Free shipping in the continental US

    This Draketrail workboat drawing by Russ Ormeis a great example of American-made artwork. We have found Russ Orme doing one of a kind “Pen And Ink On Oak” drawings in the Eastern Shores of Maryland. This Draketrail Workboat Drawing by Russ Orme measures 11 1/4 X 24 inches. The camera will never pick up the true detail of these very interesting pieces. Be sure to click on the photo to see some additional close up images. This piece is artist signed by Russ Orme.

    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.

    This small carved Snook on rough cut cypress wood measures 24 inches long and about 12 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.

    Pen and Ink Seahorse Drawing by Russ Orme

    Price: $85.00

    Click on the photo to see additional views of the Seahorse drawing by American Artist Russ Orme.

    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.

    We offer free shipping to the main land US. Ready to place an order, just give us a call at 574-870-1571 and we can get your order packed and shipped.

    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.

    Reclaimed Barn Wood Framed Black Crappie

    Click on the photo to see additional views of this reclaimed barn wood framed Black Crappie.

    This reclaimed barn wood framed Black Crappie is very colorful and shows great detail by the artist. This reclaimed barn wood framed Black Crappie measures 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. The back is covered with black kraft paper and has a saw tooth hanger.

    The black crappie’s range is uncertain, since it has been widely transplanted, but it is presumed to be similar to the white crappie’s. Its native range is suspected to be in the eastern United States and Canada, and as of 2005, populations existed in the entire continental United States.

    Crappies feed early in the morning and from about midnight until approximately 2am. Individuals smaller than about 16 cm in length eat plankton and minuscule crustaceans, while larger individuals feed on small fish, as well as minnows. Adult black crappie feed on fewer fish than white crappie do; instead they consume a larger volume of insects and crustaceans.

    Crappies are a very popular sport fish, as they are easy to catch during their feeding times. There are minimal number and size restriction limits for fishing the crappie species.

The teeth occur in two rows along the mouth and are called cardiform, because they resemble a tool used for wool carding.

    Otherwise known as Mahi-mahi, the original name causes many to mistake them for the porpoise or dolphin – think “Flipper”.  This is not so as Mahi-mahi is a fish, not a mammal as is the porpoise.  Mexican and Latin American dolphin are called “Dorado”.  Mahi-mahi often gather in large schools attracted to floating objects such as logs and buoys where they find smaller fish to feed on. They are surface feeders and are found throughout the Pacific and tropical waters world wide. Hawaiian Mahi-mahi is regarded as some of the highest quality in the world with fish over 15 pounds in size being preferred. Their flesh is white, firm, sweeter than Ono, and delicious when sautéed, baked, broiled, or fried.

    Price: $110.00 $95.00

    Click on the photo to see additional views of this barn wood framed Brook Trout.

    This is a very nice reclaimed barn wood framed Brook Trout piece of fish art.  The image is a fine giclee print on canvas from an original oil painting.  The piece measures 21 1/4 inches x 11 3/8 inches.  The back is covered with black kraft paper and has a saw tooth hanger.

    Native to the Eastern United States, the brook trout is also known as a speckled trout, a spotted trout, a brookie, or a squaretail. Considered an indicator species, they help show the health of the water. Large groups of trout indicate that the environment in which they inhabit is healthy. A decline in the population is usually a sign of a deteriorating habitat and unsanitary water.

    The size of a brook trout is significantly smaller than other trout species. Their size greatly depends on the condition of their habitat, such as the water temperature and food sources. On average, brook trout grow to about 10 inches and weigh about one pound, but those found in lakes usually grow larger, and sea trout grow even bigger. However overall, their short lifespan and slow growth rates contribute to their commonly small size.

    We have several more examples of beautiful fish art in this category – just scroll up or down to view the photos and descriptions.

    Speckled Trout, also known as “speck”, is a very important game fish in the Gulf of Mexico as well as the Atlantic Ocean. Speckled Trout are easy to identify. They have elongated bodies with spots. The spots are more prominent when young and are more numerous on the back. Specks have two very easy to recognize identification features. They have two large canine teeth and the inside of their mouths are yellow. Specks grow to a maximum size of about 16 pounds although the average is about 1 pound.

    Specks are a coastal saltwater species of the Louisiana coast where they range from brackish water out to the close in rigs. The young speckled trout start their lives out in the marshes and small lakes of coastal Louisiana. As they grow in size and becomes less vulnerable to larger predators, they move further on out. Also speckled trout are a schooling species so once you find one there are usually more!

    Price: $110.00 $95.00

    Click on the photo to see additional views of this barn wood framed Brown Trout artwork.

    This barn wood framed Brown Trout artwork would make a fine gift. This brown trout is created with oil paint on on canvas. This framed brown trout measures 21 1/4 x 11 3/8 inches.  The back is covered with black kraft paper and has a saw tooth hanger.

    The brown trout is a European species of salmonid fish that has been widely introduced into suitable environments globally. It includes both purely freshwater populations and some saltwater forms known as the sea trout. 

    The fish is not considered to be endangered, although, in some cases, individual stocks are under various degrees of stress mainly through habitat degradation, overfishing, and artificial propagation leading to introgression. Increased frequency of excessively warm water temperatures in high summer causes a reduction in dissolved oxygen levels which can cause “summer kills” of local populations if temperatures remain high for sufficient duration and deeper/cooler or fast, turbulent more oxygenated water is not accessible to the fish. This phenomenon can be further exacerbated by eutrophication of rivers due to pollution—often from the use of agricultural fertilizers within the drainage basin.

    Most popular fishing areas are along shell bars and rocky or grassy shorelines and on shallow flats, where they are usually fished by sight. Reds also forage in the surf of outside beaches nearly everywhere on the Gulf Coast and along the upper half of the East Coast, especially in the fall. Adults move offshore to spawn and are sometimes encountered in open water in large schools. They roam into coastal rivers and creeks at any time of year, and in winter swarm into them, seeking warmer water.
