Hi, and welcome to my website! Please come in and stay for a while. I'm, Jane McCauley, professional artist & illustrator. My site is 100% dedicated to serving you, which is exactly what you deserve. I wish that we could meet, have some coffee, or tea with homemade cookies, and chat in person around the kitchen table. But, since this is the "Web", that just isn't possible. But, who knows? We may meet in person one day. I hope so. In the meantime, I hope you will look through my site, get to know me, and see what I have to offer you with my artwork.
If you are looking for one, or more, unique gifts, that will be treasured for generations, or for someone special, like maybe a husband or wife, son, daughter, grandchild, relative, teacher, pastor, (even yourself), for birthdays, Christmas, Easter, wedding, retirement, "going away" present, or almost any special occasion, this is the place to come! My subjects range from highly-detailed, realistic oils on either canvas or slate. I also offer reproduction (prints), of quite a few of my oils on canvas. The subjects I paint include: Rural scenes like: barns, mountains, forests and streams; Seascapes including: lighthouses, wild ponies, shore & seabirds, fish; Animals such as: horses, mules,(even unicorns), dogs, cats; Birds including: owls, eagles, waterfowl, songbirds, hummingbirds, poultry, parrots; Still life such as: violins & bows, Bibles, candles, flowers; Wildlife including: bears, deer, elk, wolves, butterflies; and many more! Plus, I do commissions to order: Of your pets, farm animals, farm, home place, etc. (But, no "people" portraits! I don't like doing em, so I don't! Sorry.)
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND...ALL MY PAINTINGS ARE HAND-PAINTED TOTALLY BY ME....IN AMERICA!
PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR THE PRICE OF ANY ARTWORK YOU ARE INTERESTED IN.
My favorite medium is oil painting. Not only do I paint on canvas...

...but, also on antique roof slates, which used to be shingles! The slates are mostly from old buildings like, houses, churches, smokehouses, and barns that are usually 150 to 200 years old when I get them! The slates are unusual shapes and sizes, with imperfections, even moss, that I try to incorporate into the scenes.

My husband, Rev. G. O. "Sonny" Pendergraft, and I are both born-again Christians, and we witness for the Lord Jesus through my art. I have always added a Bible Scripture from the Old & New Testaments (King James or N.I.V.) title next to my signature on my oils on canvas. If you look it up, it will describe the scene. However, on my oils on slate, the Lord told me to put the whole Scripture, tastefully printed very finely in oils, on the scene! I always try to do what what the Lord says, as He is our boss! (He's a wonderful boss, the best we ever had. He never hollers at us, or fires us when we mess up. Plus, He has the best retirement plan in the entire universe!) The scenes on canvas are mostly of real places, but, I usually add something, "living", instead of painting just a, "still life", to give movement and life to the scene. See an example below with the flower painting. I added a butterfly! The Lord puts, "pictures in my head", of subjects to paint on the slates.
