Garibaldi, Hypsypops rubicundus
The Garibaldi is a symbol of Catalina Island, California where they are protected from both commercial and recreational fishing. Because of the conservation efforts, these fluorescent fish can be seen swimming in the water everywhere along the Catalina shoreline. Believe it or not these electric blue and red juveniles morph into their solid orange adult coloration as they grow older! These large 5" x 7" high quality art cards are printed on card stock, come pre-folded, packed in a clear sleeve per 10 cards, and include one white envelope for each card. Cards are blank inside for a personalized message. Printed on recycled paper.
My mission as an artist is to inspire an appreciation for and curiosity about nature and its creatures by communicating the aesthetic beauty of this planet’s amazing creatures as they really are.
It is my hope that this appreciation will result in acts of empathy & stewardship towards these incredible creatures portrayed in my paintings.
