Merluccius Bilinearis aka St Peter's Thumbprint
2009 private commission

Merluccius Bilinearis is the Latin identification for "Hake". it is a spiney fish of the cod family, fished for out of gloucester. The green version is in the permanent collection of The Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester MA. it is the most commented upon painting of the 7 fish paintings i created for the museum's Making Waves exhibition, curated by Sharon Whorley. This year I did another 24x36" verre eglomise glass drawing for a private collector. The 2009 work incorporates a silver mirrored surface.
