JEANNE ILLENYE CAT PORTRAIT OF TILLY IN THE GARDEN

Tilly
7x5 inches / oil on panel
Tilly is strikingly beautiful with her vibrant green eyes, exquisite silhouette and soft, mottled fur. This portrait, like so many that are painted in memoriam of a beloved furred family member, is particularly special as my client commissioned this the day after losing her precious little Tilly. It was as if my painting contributed to the healing process from such an unexpected heartbreak. You’ll see a tiny little bee in the painting which was a special request; presumably Tilly enjoyed chasing them in the garden!
