Claire Perry Art

 

 Welcome to Maine Fish Art.  

 

 Along the rockbound coast of Maine are many wonderful "FISH" just waiting to come to life.  From HolidayBeach, to Smuggler's Cove, to Eggamoggin Reach and beyond...your very own FISH awaits you.

Whether you perfer the natural rustic look, or the brightly colored advant guarde...each has its very own personality and character. 

Most are suitable for outside hanging.  The larger ones look stunning over a cottage doorway, porch, or "hanging out" on your barn or garage.  Outside "FISH" are treated with several coats of shellac to protect them from the elements, and weather very well...keeping their colors nicely with  an occasional re-spraying.  My personal cottage "FISH" has been hanging outside  for years and still looks as good as the day it was made.

LARGE

An ERIC HOPKINS FiSh

Over 3 feet...maybe 4 feet. A gorgeous and eye-catching FiSh. Eric Hopkins is a highly successful artist who is known for his birds-eye view of Contemporary Maine oceanscapes. I love his work and made this FiSh in his style of painting. One of my favorites...is this beauty.

COMISSION PIECES of ART

Handsome Red Whale

SEBASTIN

Sebastian is a steady, kind, and benevolent soul. He is a guardian and protector. Sebastian was a special order fellow that came together so easily it amazed me.
