Beara Fishermen

24x8

This is a re-working of an oil I did a few years ago which you can see lower down the page. I have made a greeting card of it but the image for the card is reversed as I do not want the bend of the card to interfere with the house. The above image of the oil is how I painted it. For the greeting card I have renamed the painting 'Waiting out the Storm'
