No, I didn't paint this.  But I wish I had.  "Winter Light Achill" is by a talented painter I've been in touch with, Douglas Hutton. He's from County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland, also known as "the Maguire County." 
    Apparently he spends his life tramping all over the west of Ireland which is something I can only accomplish every year and a half or so. 
   On his website is a self-portrait depicting him rowing in the ocean.  That separates us right there.  The closest thing I've done to that is dunking--and killing--my camera in Echo Lake when my canoe tipped over in 8" of water. (A year later I did it again!)
