  6. Hi everyone, I'm an Irish artist who produces original paintings of game fish for commission, mainly for customers in Ireland and the UK. If you have time, I'd appreciate any feedback or opinions you might have on my work, here's a sample: There are more samples at http://www.ianotoole.com Also, if anyone has any ideas where this type of painting might be popular, such as restaurants or hotels/lodges, please let me know. Thanks for your time, Ian O'Toole
