You may want to check Kenny's art gallery in Galway, they had some nice paintings and sculpture in recent years. Original work though, with the price that comes with it.

Not so many at the moment though

Last time I was in they had a few bronzes by the same artist that were pretty much modelled on the piper in the painting. Nice stuff.

The artist who painted the one above is Brian Valley,founder of the Armagh pipers club
I wonder if he painted this one of Felix Doran which is on the home page of the Armagh pipers club website?

Painter is Brian 'JB' Vallely and if you check your trad albums you will see he has painted many of the covers, such as Robbie Hannan's first solo and Paul Bradley's album.

When Paddy Keenan had his last album out there was an awesome painting at the WK piping concert with him in it painted by Vallely.

I love his big-fingered piper paintings. They cost quite a lot but you could try asking a starving art student to make a copy of one for you for a few quid, or give it a go yourself.

If you are determined to get an original from Vallely you could ask the artist himself if you can get a phone number-galleries will charge +50% commission on paintings so its always good to try and get in touch with the main man.
