Nurse Shark, Lionfish, Cowfish and Friends 56"x50" oil on canvas 2008

The ocean is filled with many fish. The cowfish,green with a red eye, has a solid bony body. Its mouth is perpetually open as it is an extension of its bony body plate and it cannot close it. This fish can only swim slowly by using its tiny fins.

The cowfish is an ancient fish that has existed for many thousands of years before man appeared and it has horns on its head.

The lionfish is very fearsome with its spiny poisonous barbs. It eats everything in its way.The nurse shark sleeps peacefully. It is one of the few sharks that can breath without moving constantly. The other sharks must have a constant flow of water though their gills to maintain the level of oxygen they need.
