Green Wood Fish
Green Wood Fish
Dimensions: 18" tall x 8" wide x 2" thick. Weighs 2 pounds.
This painted wood fish is the perfect Mississippi folk art to bring color and whimsy to your walls. I, Christine Schultz, handpainted it with green and gold professional acrylics. My husband, Marc Deloach, made it from cypress wood he salvaged from the Mississippi Delta. Great gift for guys or girls, for a housewarming or baby shower, or a happy present for yourself.
Special Features: This iridescent green fish is a foot and a half tall. He has a gold eye, gill, lips, and stripes. His tail is dark green with iridescent green stripes. He's made from reclaimed barnwood with slight texture that shows the wood's history. I painted the sides to create a multi-dimensional effect. A real catch. Ready to ship.
Hang this fish anywhere--in the office, dining room, kitchen, kids’ rooms, over doorways and stairways, in bathrooms and bedrooms, covered porches, lakehouses, or wherever you’d like a pop of color and whimsy. One is great. Groupings are even better.
On the back: Marc nailed a notched metal hanger over an inletted drilled circle, so the fish will hang flush to the wall from a single nail or screw head. You can see the salvaged wood on back. My signature, Christine Schultz, is there, as well.
Care and handling: While these fish are fun and durable, they’re not meant as playthings for kids or to hold up outside directly in the weather, (although a covered porch is fine). We're happy to custom make fish. Just ask.
