I've been there. ermmmmm, would "The Farie Isles" be a good guess?

I went there in my Mirror once but I have slept since then.

Incredible artwork - all of it, but the Conway stuff is excellent.

Love the puffers.

How did he manage to paint Warlight in 1987, did it survive longer than people realize?

Pibroch seems not to have survived. :-(

It would be an excellent guess.

I think I win this one.

It's Eilean Loain from Port Lunna.

Somewhat surprisingly it had the same 'feel' as Nisos Sparti in the S Ionian.

Thanks all for guessing, and thanks to lordmacdonald for kicking off an excellent thread.
