Painted this one from my last Ireland trip, she was at the B&B where we stayed right on the    Ring of Kerry, she had the most beautiful view!  they was about 35 other ones , she was not alone! and lots of sheep as well. I love the butter that comes from that area ,"the Kerry Butter" it is available everywhere now ,that is all I use .
