Jane Seymour is best known for her portrayal as Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman on the long-running TV series (1993-98), but she is also a very accomplished artist. She showed off many of her paintings at the Wentworth Gallery on Las Olas Blvd. in Ft. Lauderdale on July 19.

While some of the paintings are either floral or symbolic, such as two hearts as shown in the photo above, others are deeply personal to Seymour. Two such paintings are of her with Christopher Reeve. She wrotes that she felt an instant connection with him on the set of Somewhere in Time (1980). "I met Chris for the first time when I auditioned for the part of Elise, and I was his first choice. It was a lovely romantic role. "

The Kiss by Jane SeymourThe Kiss by Jane SeymourShe describes her relationship with him as "incredible, a great love that continued to the day he died, a love that withstood the countless changes in our lives." Her painting of The Kiss was done a year before his tragic death, and a limited edition of the image was on display at the Wentworth Gallery. "The image depicts the first kiss we shared in the movie, and it was a pivotal moment. When I learnt that Chris had passed away, I decided to give a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this work of art, for an entire year, to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation."

Seymour also painted herself as the heroine of her TV series. "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman was a great gift, allowing me to work outdoors in a beautiful park not far from my home in Malibu. In Dr. Mike, the title of the painting, I feel that I have captured myself as I truly am, and as I was in the role of Michaela Quinn. All artists enjoy self-portraits, perhaps because they know themselves so well."
