Coral Reef


An original, contemporary interpretation of an important theme, with vivid colours and lots of detail. Reefs are often called “rainforests of the sea”. Shallow coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world’s ocean surface, yet they provide a home for at least 25% of all marine species. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine water that contain few nutrients. They are fragile ecosystems, partly because they are very sensitive to water temperature. They are under threat from climate change, oceanic acidification, blast fishing, cyanide fishing for aquarium fish, sunscreen use, overuse of reef resources, and harmful land-use practices causing water pollution, which can harm reefs by encouraging excess algal growth.
This painting would make an instant focal point in any room in the home or office. The sides are painted white, so further framing is unnecessary. It will be carefully packed for delivery in bubble wrap and a professionally designed box. It will be sent by next day tracked delivery.

Jean Tatton Jones

Welcome to my gallery.  " The happy highways where I went and cannot come again" (A.E.Houseman.) I hope you enjoy browsing and perhaps find a painting to your taste as well. I have sold over 3000 paintings internationally to individuals and to corporate groups, including medical and dental centres, restaurants and offices and my work has been exhibited at many galleries. I graduated from a British university and have also won awards for poetry which has been published in North America, Europe, India and Britain. I use a variety of art media including watercolour, acrylic and oil and my themes include landscapes, sea views, flowers and abstract design. Some of my recent work has a dream like quality and is born from our rich cultural heritage of myths, legends and poetry which evoke feelings of mystery and enchantment. The paintings come initialled on the front, signed and dated on the back and with a Certificate of Authenticity. They are on a frame with painted gallery edges, so are ready to hang. Thank you for looking.
