Jansen Panettiere spray-painted in final photo before death

The final photo Jansen Panettiere shared of himself before his unexpected passing showed him beaming in the woods with a pal.

The “Ice Age: The Meltdown” voice actor snapped a selfie with his friend while they took some time to spray-paint a stone facade in the woods of Nyack, New York.

“Graffiti is illegal,” he captioned the photo, which was shared to Instagram on Feb. 6.

Going by “Rane” when it came to sharing his art, the brother of star Hayden Panettiere shared two photos of some new pieces just days ago.

“I like this one. #rane,” he captioned the photo of one colorful painting.

In another, he shared a photo of his girlfriend, Catherine Michie, posing in front of one of his pieces that appears to include the Caduceus, which is the symbol for medicine.

A source close to the Panettiere family told TMZ that Jansen died over the weekend in New York. He was 28.

No cause of death has been given, and the “Nashville” alum has yet to make a statement about the tragic news.

Jansen, whose artist name was Rane, was found dead at his apartment in New York.

The two appeared to be close siblings, as Jansen shared a photo of Hayden attempting to chop his locks last month.

“Not the first haircut she’s tried to give me,” he captioned the sweet snap.

Jansen initially followed in his older sister’s footsteps and entered Hollywood before transitioning into art full-time. He had roles in “Even Stevens,” “Blue’s Clues,” “Robots” and “The Last Day of Summer.”

Hayden, 33, and Jansen appeared in three films together: “Tiger Cruise” in 2004, “Racing Stripes” in 2005 and “The Forger” in 2011.
