False Albacore, Euthynnus alletteratus
Why is it called a False Albacore? Because the Little Tunny is not part of the Thunnus genus like true tunas. Nevertheless they fight just like them and fly fishermen flock to the beaches and jetties of the New England shore in the fall to seek them out. They are a symbol of fall on Martha's Vineyard. This is the latest print made from Nick's most recent Albie painting.
Printed on high quality, artist grade stock canvas and folded around a lightweight frame to give them a gorgeous, gallery ready appearance. With acid free ink that will last without fading or chipping, features a scratch-resistant UV coating. Wipes clean easily with a damp cloth or to remove dust, vacuum gently using a soft brush attachment.
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.
