Many of Jeanette's oil paintings are of animals.  There has never been a day when she
did not share her life with those other "special people".  At present she lives with a

This painting was more of a social statement—not

Los Tres Perros

28 x 22

These dogs reside in the mountains of Colorado. I
told them to pose, and they ceratinly did. Border

Portrait of Cat with Pears

16 x 16

Can you tell they have very different
personalities?
Duel

Oil on Canvas

My husband and I went on a camping weekend with
some very good friends of ours.  They had a much
beloved camper from the 1970’s that was affectionately
named “Green Algae”.  Brazos Bend was in full water
lily bloom and the alligators wanted to pose for us.  
This big fellow seemed to be playing with the lily pad.

Oil on Canvas

Being from Louisiana I love the old plantation homes.
The ancestral ghosts that inhabit them inspired this
painting. The animals are now their caretakers.

Poodle fur, poodle fur, poodle fur. Almost heaven! Who
could resist painting this sweet puppy.
“Proud Parents"

Acrylic and Paper on Canvass

I thought it would be fun to show these
proud parents waiting for their golden
child to arrive. Parental pride is universal.
