This portrait is from the hand of New York State artist Phyllis Tarlow, and I'd like to share her bio with you:
Phyllis Tarlow is an artist with a broad focus, which ranges from creating portraits of people, animals, and homes to painting the wonder and beauty of the landscape. Her love for the domestic animals that so greatly enhance the lives of so many families has made painting and drawing them a special pleasure. As she sees it, each dog and cat has a unique personality and character that Phyllis seeks to capture and share with her audience. The animals that she portrays are not generic representations or caricatures but living, breathing individuals.
