Those paintings on Grace & Frankie were done by a real artist

Grace & Frankie stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, but there is another star of the series whose face has never been seen onscreen. That person is Nancy Rosen, the real-life artist who provides all of the paintings on the series for Tomlin’s character, who is a painter and art teacher.

The Chicago, Illinois-based Rosen has provided paintings for every season of the Netflix series, but her love of art goes back to her childhood. “I’ve been painting since I was five,” Rosen told Variety.

‘Grace And Frankie’ Is Changing The Way We Look At Older Women’s Sexual Desires

Grace and Frankie Season 3 premiered on Netflix on March 24 with legendary actors Jane Fonda (Grace) and Lily Tomlin (Frankie) together once again on-screen. The titular characters have been through a lot on the show — divorce, dating, making Yam lube — and Grace and Frankie Season 3 unapologetically portrays women’s sexuality. The new season of the comedy series shows the two women in their 70s having active sex lives, embracing masturbation, and starting a business making sex toys aimed at older women. And it’s so great to see Grace and Frankie’s sex lives take center stage as a major storyline, rather than being played for laughs.

What ‘Grace And Frankie’ Can Teach Us About Starting Over

When I was about 20 years old, my grandmother gave me one of her very best pieces of advice. She said, “When you are young, there is nothing you do that you can’t undo.” Yes, I understand there are certain things that can never be undone, but the point is that, within reason, the choices you make in your young life about who to date, what to study, where to live, or where to work can all be changed. But, Grace and Frankie’s third season shows that you don’t have to be young to reinvent yourself. The new season, which hit Netflix March 24, features Grace and Frankie living full lives in their 70s, with room to reinvent themselves — no matter their age.

An art show puts Grace And Frankie’s character-driven comedy on display

Grace And Frankie’s third season jumps into the messy dynamics brought out in the final altercation between its titular characters and their families at the end of season two. Last season, Grace and Frankie were at their most fraught, pulled apart by Grace’s drinking problem. But the death of their dear mutual friend Babe brought them back together again, only to realize that they’re still each other’s greatest allies and advocates: Their ex-husbands and children all take them for granted and underestimate them. So Grace and Frankie were thrust back together again, deciding to turn their unlikely friendship into an unlikely business partnership. The third season opens on this new chapter in their relationship. Grace and Frankie are back and making vibrators for older women.

Everything You Missed On Season 2 Of Grace & Frankie

Mark your calendars, because Grace and Frankie is coming back to Netflix on March 24.
For all of you who have yet to be converted to Netflix’s greatest gal pals, Grace and Frankie is about two septuagenarians thrust together in a pretty unexpected life change. Grace (Jane Fonda) is an uptight, martini-drinking, country clubber who founded a successful beauty company. Frankie (Lily Tomlin) is her polar opposite, a free-wheeling artist who believes in the power of moon cycles and the 1960s. The only thing these women have in common is that their husbands are law partners. And then, at the series’ start, what they have in common is that their husbands are leaving them for each other. Suddenly, these lifelong nemeses are in the same boat.
