I would find out her address and send her a thank you card like your other guests. I definitely wouldnt do the custom painting thing bc it would be awkward since she no longer dates your BIL.

As the +1 guest of your BIL, she really didn’t have to give you a gift, but it was generous that she did.  

Etiquette holds that thank yous are for gifts actually received, so I would just write her a note thanking her for the gift card and for her generosity. I wouldn’t follow through to set up the appointment, but if she pursues it with you I’d tell her it is absolutely not necessary.
