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.

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. Everything just came into place like it was planned ahead of time...! Sebastian's roots hail from Islesboro, Maine; a small island off the mainland of the mid-coast area. His coloring is a soft muted blue and his fluke, spout and tail are made of copper. Sebastian will be starting his long swim home to Colorado with a very happy heart. I think I heard him say: "What took you so long?" He has a wry sense of humor.......
