West Coast Halibut by Bruce Muir
16″x20″ Oil on canvas
c/o the artist
This is the very first painting, that I can recall seeing, depicting a halibut.
Halibut themselves are a remarkable species of fish, as a juvenile fish one eye migrates to join the other on the upward camouflaged side of the fish. They grow to impressive sizes; in some cases upwards of 400lbs. Anyone from around here will tell you, they’re one of the tastiest fish in the Pacific.
