JEANNE ILLENYE king charles spaniels in french shop

Tucker and Jilly
"Sitting Pretty in a French Shop"
Two beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniels sit contentedly in my client's gorgeous French shop in Colonial Williamsburg.  Her shop is chock full of blue and white porcelain, oil paintings, and sumptuous furnishings including the beautiful velvet tufted ottoman and silk striped French chairs painted a soft, warm white with gilded fleur-de-lis open backs.  I just love the deep cranberry pink walls to set off the pine fireplace mantle.  Although I'm an 18th century American colonial style gal, I have always loved French style furnishings and interior design in general, so for me this painting was as much an interior scape as it was a pet portrait.  Aren't Tucker and Jilly precious just sitting pretty?  Be sure to scroll down a few posts to see their sister, Molly.
