Seahorses

£48.00

This is one of a new series of small paintings called Little Gems. This one is 8″ by 8″ and is a study of those beautiful sea creatures seahorses. I have used iridescent gel on the main part, which enhances the colour.
Seahorses are fish. They live in water, breath through gills and have a swim bladder. However they do not have caudal fins and have a long snake-like tail. They also have a neck and a snout that points down that helps with probing for food between the rocks.
Seahorses propel themselves by using a small fin on their back that flutters up to 35 times per second. Even smaller pectoral fins located near the back of the head are used for steering.There are about 40 known species of seahorse. Seahorses prefer to swim in pairs with their tails linked together. They swim upright and avoid predators by mimicking the colour of underwater plants. Because of their body shape, seahorses are rather inept swimmers and can easily die of exhaustion when caught in storm-roiled seas.

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.
