| ||Jennell Trulove is an accomplished artist with works on display in 28 states and on 3 continents. She has won
numerous awards for her paintings and has been commissioned for paintings by individuals, Community
Spirit Bank, Red Bay Arts and Entertainment Center and Farm Bureau. She owns "The Oaks Art Gallery" where she promotes the work of aspiring artists and teaches beginning and intermediate art classes.|
Jennell taught school for 39 years and as part of her school work incorporated basic art work and crafts into her lessons. As she neared
retirement she developed her interest in art and started creating paintings of local buildings, bridges and landscapes. Above are two pictures from this phase of her work. The left painting is of "The Little Bear Creek Grist Mill". This mill is still in operation and it is visible from Alabama Hwy 24 about
11 miles east of Red Bay, Alabama. The picture on the right is of "The Old Red Bay Depot". This depot no longer exists and Jennell painted it from
memory and with the aid of old photographs. These two paintings are in Water Color and both original paintings are
available from TruloveStyle.
After retiring from the Alabama School system in 1989 Jennell concentrated on
painting full time and opened the Oaks Art Gallery on Highway 23, south of
Red Bay, Alabama. She begin to experiment with watercolors and found
it to be the perfect medium for her crisp floral compositions and
landscapes. Her paintings of Roses, Lilies, and Magnolia blooms widened her audience from a local following to a national one.
