Artist's Description

Another entry in my Coral Reef series…

This reminds me of a stunning outlandishly colored coral reef fish, the Parrot Fish.

Here’s what a real parrot fish looks like…

Found on a rusting WWII vintage Higgins boat.

Oxidized paint on the boat plus some lubricating oil from long ago seeped down the sides of the decrepit vessel, creating some wonderful rainbow effects.

Sand Island, Midway Atoll, Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, Territory of The United States of America
