Thank you for the compliment, the painter of the picture is a swedish artist named Gerhard Wihlborg. A version of higher resolution can be found here: http://www.tomelillakonstsamling.se/5Wihlborg15.jpg.
All the best
Love your avatar. I can't get a closeup of it though. Can you point me in the direction of a bigger picture of it?
