The above photos are from a collector in Sun Valley, Idaho, who first found my work through Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC and purchased the chicken painting (top left) there. Then she joined my newsletter and browsed my website and contacted me about purchasing the horse painting (top right). I talked to the gallery, and they organized things so that the collector could purchase the painting through them, and I shipped the painting directly to the collector.
Thanks so much for sharing!

Julie is a great collector! And I was so excited that the paintings (above) were behind her when she was on TV many times – and when she talked to Congress! Thank you so much Julie for the photo, for being a great collector, and for sharing my artwork with the world!
Portraits of a great East Coast family, collected over many years.
This wonderful collector was one of my first collectors to purchase a mom and baby portrait! Those are very small portraits of moms bonding with their babies, painted in oil on canvas. I loved how her painting came out, so I was excited when she contacted me to paint a dad and baby portrait! Over the course of a decade, I’ve had the opportunity to paint 4 small portraits of this lovely family.
Thanks so much for that opportunity, and for sharing the photo of the paintings in your home!

I’ve been a huge fan of Jessie’s work for many years! It’s been a joy to watch her work grow and evolve, and every time I think I’ve found my all-time favorite piece, she creates something else to love! Her greatest asset is that she is in …
I took a drawing class from Jessie through an art group I belong to. She was professional, friendly, and alert to questions from the group. I most appreciated the explanation of value studies as that has been something I have struggled with …
Absolutely love Jessie and her work! She ships immediately, and packages everything beautifully! So excited to give the pelicans I bought from her, to my Mom as a gift! Highly recommend and you should watch what she comes out with!
I commissioned Jessie to surprise my wife with a 45 year anniversary painting of a pair of horses pulling together. Jessie took the concept and captured everything I hoped for in the painting and more. My wife loved it and the painting hangs above our fireplace. …
Beautiful work, lovely portraits as well as landscapes. I am a satisfied collector and treasure the painting of hers I own.
An incredible artist! If you have the chance, commission her for some work. Brilliant artist.

“Just received the painting. It is wonderful!”

“I have collected several works of art by Jessie Rasche and love her work! She has painted 3 custom commissions for me that are beautiful and I have a large painting that was featured in South Dakota magazine that I was able to purchase from a gallery and gift to my husband for Christmas. My most recent purchase was a painting featured in her art exhibit and it arrived yesterday. My husband and I love it and all works that she has shipped have been so carefully packaged. I’m very impressed with the beauty and quality of my collection.”
“I am amazed at how organized you are, and admire your ability to break things down into baby steps that are easy understand—you are an awesome teacher!”
”Thank you for packaging it so carefully as well. I want everyone to know that when you buy a painting from Jessie, you get the royal treatment! Thank you again, I am so in love with your work.”
– Ann Thompson
“Jessie, I just got the painting and it is beautiful…. I love it. The best Christmas Eve in a very long time. Thank you and Merry Christmas!”
Oh my gosh!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE with tears in my eyes… I am in love with this painting. You are so talented you blow me away. I love the way you captured his eyes and his expression. This painting is full of emotion.
I just received this painting today and am so so in love with it, it’s even more perfect in person. Thank you, Jessie.
“We got the painting! And we LOVE IT! It’s wonderful. Thank you so much.”
Just a quick note to say the painting arrived safely – definitely the best packing job I have ever seen. The painting is fabulous, even better than expected. Thanks so much for sending it off so quickly and safely. Cheers!
The painting came in perfect condition! Thank you so much, it is beautiful! My 20month old is fascinated with it and keeps pointing herself out 🙂
“I really love the classes. You’re a great teacher and you make it fun!”
“I received the painting and the calendar today. I love both! I was pleasantly surprised to find the calendar is larger this time. That’s a plus for me. And it’s loaded with chickens! There is something about chickens that draws me to them and, for some reason, makes me smile and even sometimes laugh.
Jessie, the painting is wonderful. I opened it slowly and made sure it was upside down before I looked at it. To increase the anticipation! When I flipped it over it just filled me with joy and put a big happy smile on my face. The “Red Barn, White Cows” evokes so many memories and emotions. Living in a mostly rural area all my life I have this thing about barns. They put me in awe. After all these years I’ve taken to trying to really understand what those feelings are all about. Your art captures all that in this one small painting. I love it!”
– Terry Lyle
“A home run. She really likes it.”

I am blown away by this painting and we will treasure it forever. Thank you so very much for this.
– Teah (Wisconsin)
“I can’t tell you how excited I am to find you and finally make a decision to paint again. I have been in my oil paint four days in a row. Saturday was so fun. I loved painting with a limited palette. That was an eye opener. […] I do believe with some guidance I can achieve what my mind envisions. Sincerely,”
– Anne Marie

Thank you sincerely,”
