Tautog, Tautoga onitis
Although a lesser known species, the Tautog (also called Blackfish) is a common inhabitant of the rocky shorelines of New England. The males have a characteristic white chin and salt and pepper coloration as the one depicted here, while the females sport a brownish calico pattern. 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.
