Stephanie Calahan842FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 2 of 4My goal was to crowdsource a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude, I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1311 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+ #womenongplus #womenonline #womenongoogleplus #women #activeusers #activedirectory #activeengagers #fabfems #googleplusengagers #femalesongoogleplus #female 2013-05-09 17:30:57362381135CC G+
Joshua Berg4,973PageRank in Google+ Sharers & Engagers. THANK YOU! ♥This is my special thanks to my favorite circle! All the people who shared (publicly) &, or, wrote about my popular PageRank Series 1-6. These guys get it!- They understand what interaction & networking in Google+ are all about, they either have good PR rankings, or are well on their way towards it, because they understand quality content & the reciprocal nature of engagement in G+.If you're looking for higher engagement in G+, I suggest you add this circle to yours & share it on. From time to time, I'll be promoting this circle of my favorite sharers & engagers.For anyone I missed that shared this series, or recently wrote about it, you can let me know below. In some cases users will not appear in the public shares, or ripples, because they mistakenly didn't select Public when sharing content & so aren't tracked. Shares to private communities, or your bookmarked circle are also not tracked.BTW, there's more of the PageRank in Google+ series coming. I have some interesting observations you're going to want to hear about soon, so watch for it.For anyone that didn't get to see this revealing series about SEO & PageRank in Google+, you can read it here...▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔▔Pt 1: Is Google+ Page Rank the culprit behind the current ... http://goo.gl/R4TZMPt 2: How PageRank in Google+ is Earned.

Steve Mills10,302My Artists circle has been pretty carefully sifted and assembled, so I am comfortable sharing it with you. Hopefully you will agree, and share further.2013-01-05 00:57:52246115CC G+
G+ with Brushes1,928As I am returning to my regular second-half-of-week shift on +G+ with Brushes , I once again re-share our artists' circle, now 93 people strong. This is the circle where we look for paintings and drawings to share.Please, if you are an artist working in traditional (non-digital) media, and you are not in this circle, and you do want your work to be occasionally re-shared on our page, do the following:1. Add the page to your circles, if you haven't already (it's not because we want to pump up our followers' numbers, but just because we cannot add to a circle anyone who hasn't added us first).2. Tell us that you are an artist and want to be in this circle, so that we don't miss you.3. That's it, basically, but if you feel like it, you might also spread the word about our page to your followers... :)Yours truly,+Lena Levin 2012-10-18 18:00:1293646CC G+

Maude McDonald15,490I am trying to do some "circle management" today.  If you are a painter, work with a pigment, and if you have added me but I have left you out of this circle, please let me know.I also have an "Artist" circle for non pigment artists (charcoal, pen/ink, sculpture or 3D art, etc).  I will share that soon.  Again, if you have circled me and I have not added you, please let me know on that posting.2012-09-30 21:23:31430336CC G+

No one has asked for inclusion and the choice of inclusion was solely my own decision. • Photographers that are inactive were not chosen• Photographers with animated gifs were not chosen• Only photographers sharing a nice selection of their own images were included• Lots of external links = not included• I had to like what I saw; my circle = my choice.• I'm in the circle. My circle, I get to be in it.For anyone sharing this circle, I recommend that you add a few fresh images to your stream to keep your content balanced.◊◊◊2012-08-24 09:00:48265133138170CC G+
G+ with Brushes1,642I am re-sharing our current version of "Artists" circle.Please, if you work in traditional media, have our page circled and would like your work to be shared here occasionally, mention this in the comments, so we might include you in the circle.It would make the work of searching for paintings and drawings to share so much easier for us! Thanks in advance,+Lena Levin 2012-08-21 23:40:52731235CC G+
Samantha Villenave225,079Got Art? - Part 6: Artists - J (by first name)Part 1: Artists - A: http://bit.ly/NDM6ifPart 2: Artists - B: http://bit.ly/PlfKbXPart 3: Artists - C: http://bit.ly/NoWtDTPart 4: Artists - D - E: http://bit.ly/N2xXNlPart 5: Artists - F - I: http://bit.ly/Ss6FMWThe text below is copied from the original circle share part 1, because, no, people aren't going to click to read it, and haters will hate, so I must reiterate. Sorry! :)At nearly 1000, my art circle is bursting at the seams. It's too big to share on it's own anymore, so I thought I'd break it down into several smaller circles, to share over a period of days.These people fill my streams with visual imagery, sometimes beautiful, experimental, evocative... each one has a unique perspective and practice. Most of these people are painters, drawers, illustrators, sculptors, etc. (I generally keep my photogs in a separate circle, with a few exceptions, for good measure. So yes, this circle is a different beast.)The desire to connect with other artists is what brought me to G+, and it is a huge part of why I am still here.****************************************************************************A note about this circle, and my sharing it.Every time I share a circle, I get a backlash of anger from people that are not in it. Honestly, it is to the point that I rarely share circles.Please know that this circle is not all of the artists that you should be following here on Google+, it is simply the artists that I follow. I have chosen them for personal reasons, and enjoy following each of them. I am sharing them because I believe that you may also enjoy following them.This circle reflects my choices, of whom to follow, please be respectful of that. If you are an artist, and not in my circles, please feel free to say hi and let me know in the comments, so that I can mosey on over to your profile and see your work! #art #creativity #sharedcircles  2012-08-16 16:59:1710610523CC G+

Marilyn Fenn9,388My Top 100Just sharing the top 100 people with whom I interact (or who interact with me; not sure which way it goes).  I left out pages, and oops - accidentally deleted some pages from my permanent mega circle.  Did I lose you?And should you be here?  ;)2012-07-24 02:30:531012109CC G+
Martin Bailey37,482It's been a while since I shared my Photography circle, so here goes.This circle is the result of a year on Google+ interacting with many, many amazing photographers. It isn't a comprehensive list of the best photogs on G+, and it doesn't contain everyone that I interact with or follow. I have a few other circles for people that share good info but don't interact, and I have some lists of friends that haven't taken the time to upload enough photos to make their profile look pretty. I'll shift them over when their profiles look good. Superficial? Yes, but I like things to look pretty.This isn't a list that I'll add people to on request. If our paths cross and you share good content, I'll add you in due course. If you think you should be in here but aren't, I'm sorry. Let's stay friends and you'll be in their someday if you continue to share original and interesting photography related information.There are also a number of people that write in Japanese in here. If you don't like posts in languages you don't understand, weed those plussers out later, but they are in the list primarily because they're great photographers, so hopefully you'll keep them circled.Enjoy...2012-07-18 12:47:18438501350CC G+
Marilyn Fenn9,303Sharing one of my many artists circlesI haven't updated my "Painters Painting" circle in a verrrrry long time, but I'm sharing it now anyway.  If you are a traditional media painter who posts mostly (or at least ~50%) about painting (your paintings, other's paintings, whatever), and IF you're not in this circle, please let me know in the comments, so I can add you.Also, feel free to share this circle, and to add these folks to your circles.2012-07-09 21:20:56277629CC G+
Samantha Villenave48,038I'm in the mood to ponder art and artists, and thought I'd spread the love a bit by sharing my art circle with you. I know, it's a biggie, but each person in it is a gem. They fill my internet life with beauty and creativity, some for over a year now. If you're an artist, and see this post, please feel free to leave a comment so that I can hop on over to your profile and discover your work as well! #art2012-06-25 17:30:5947823313CC G+
Nicolas Amelio-Ortiz924100 ARTISTS OF GOOGLE+ - V1.0Although I'm still picking my favorites out of a list with more or less 600 people, here is a circle of 100 great artists, illustrators and designers. These people create great paintings and art in General, so if you're into that, you should totally add them. If you want to be in the next version of this Art circle, please comment this post and tell me a little about the stuff you make.By the way (most of you guys know this already), if you're an artist here on Google+, you should absolutely check out +Moan Lisa and the circles that are shared there :)Best of luck to you all, and have a nice week!2012-06-18 15:11:24100303CC G+

Waterscape Art Wednesday2,898Before we get into the details of this weeks round up I would like thank my co-sponsor +Shawn Lewis for the weeks he has assisted with the +Waterscape Art Wednesday theme. Unfortunately, Shawn is unable to to continue in this role. I have enjoyed getting to know Shawn and wish him well with his creative adventures. And a special thank you to all the new fine artists who circled us this week! It is wonderful to be able to include you in this week's circle and in the random selection for featuring on our Page header. With 46 outstanding new entries on the +Waterscape Art Wednesday gallery Page this week's feature comes to a close. We invite you to come browse through the submission and check out this weeks shared circle for new participants. Four requests have gone out to randomly selected Artists to have their work featured on our +Waterscape Art Wednesday Page for the next week. Please note: to be featured and to be in the shared circle you must have the Page circled. Our apologies if we missed anyone. Please let us know. Our thanks to +Daily Fine Art Themes created by +Charles Lupica A HUGE thank you to all of our contributing Fine Artists, the + 1's, insightful and encouraging comments and the shares. You are all simply outstanding awesomeness! Until next week. Your humble co-sponsors +Terrill Welch and +Shawn Lewis2012-04-20 01:59:3434413CC G+
Gene Bowker33,758Extended Play Circle v2 I reshared my "Premium Blend" circle a few minutes ago, so I also wanted to share my "Extended Play" circle. I have changed this circle recently NOT to include the PB folks, so there is room for a few more here. The extended play circle is those folks who I interact with on a regular basis but usually not as often as those on the EP circle. I visit each of these folks at least once a week to check out their streams and more often as I can. There are also quite a few of the "name brand" photographers of G+ here whose work enlivens my stream and who I look up to. As always, I'm sorry if I've overlooked anyone. Usually that just means I haven't had the time to get to know you yet. Thanks folks for making G+ a better place for me.2012-04-16 15:45:22204825CC G+

Trever McGhee6,436You just never know who you'll discover until you circle them.There's someone for everyone to follow in this incredible circle of people & pages. Especially +Candace Regan whose my better half who makes me look good :-) She wasn't feeling well yesterday, she's been putting in 20 hr days lately working on our projects to help others for free, so I thought I'd surprise her today with a few new followers, she loves to engage with people. Just like others in this group of people who are waiting to follow you, they love to engage with people, while others are hoping for the opportunity to inspire you with their posts.For me, that's what it's all about, helping one another find the right people to connect to.The greatest thing about Google is you can add and delete as many circles as you want. So put this circle to the test, check out the Stream for a week, keep those who you like and return the rest to the grid. You can always add them again later on when the time is right for you. I guarantee you, you'll find more than one :-)That's why I included +J.J. Bentley circle of 190 "Rising G+ Superstars" Their amazing photographers with less than 10,000 followers, that are rising to the top because of the extraordinary work they do :-) Please add & share this circle ~ to share these extraordinary people,If you would like to be added, please leave a comment. #BeHappy #Friends #Share #circleshare #circlecount #publiccircle #sharedcircle If you have a favorite photo/artwork/story that we should consider for our book & show that were producing this fall, so that we can continue to help people for free, then post it on the public stream and include the #hashtag #Take2seconds and mention my name +Trever McGhee or +Candace Regan so that we can comment on it. If the photo/artwork/story follows the Google guidelines, it is family friendly and we have the artist's permission, we'll include it in the DVD portion that goes with the book. Everyone can take part in it, all you need is one plus which can be your own :-). As to whether or not your photo/artwork/story makes it into the book and/or the reality show will be determined by the largest number of pluses/shares.More details on the projects and how we'll raise 97 million will be released on Apr 22 :-)2012-04-12 15:11:29471851635CC G+

Peter From27,595Visual Artists CircleOK, people... You have mail-bombed me with questions and requests about my Visual Artists' Circle and I have listened. Here is Revision II –– fresh and ready to be shared.If YOU want to be included in the VAC, let me know in the comments. I have one condition though (if you want to be included) –– the obvious ones such as as good artwork in your feed set aside –– and that is that you reshare this post in your feed to spread the word. No reshare, no inclusion. :)This circle is undergoing changes all the time –– some people will be lifted out, new ones will be added –– and if you want yourself removed from the circle, just drop me a line.Next reshare of the Visual Artists Circle will be end of next week.Now, enjoy all the great artists... :) #CircleShare2012-04-03 13:35:034941237247CC G+

Christy Ramsey10,583G+ Awesome Chicks Circle #2Did you know, as of right now, the Google+ user base is only 30% female? I recently posted a thread proposing that I wanted to create a circle of Awesome G+ Chicks. I was DELIGHTED AND AMAZED at the response I got in just 24 hours!

Aspen Tree Painting by Jill Saur

Inspired by one of my trips to Colorado, my 16"x20" original acrylic painting is titled, "Summer Repose".  This painting is sold and hangs in the home of one of my collectors.

Most of my paintings are about our life's journey.  There's a path in this painting, inviting the viewer to imagine what lies ahead, if they dare to explore.  Thanks for viewing! - Jill  www.JillSaur.com

Andrew Wyeth American Master Painter 1917-2009

Think these are fishing nets?  Not so fast. There's a story behind these nets.  There's always a story.

In Andrew Wyeth's own words, "On Allen Island, a young girl was washed out to sea in a storm.  They couldn't save her.  I was thinking about the young girls body floating there underwater, and the nets became her spirit."  

Andrew Wyeth was rarely satisfied with his work.  But, this painting was different. He thought it was beautiful.  He felt touched by a spiritual source while working on it and aptly named it, "Pentecost".

From my early years as an artist, till this day, I've been greatly influenced by the works and life of Andrew Wyeth.  His inspired paintings touch my spirit and motivate me to paint from a deeper, more intimate place in mysoul.more »

Chattahoochee River Painting

I couldn't have rendered this painting of Sope Creek in Marietta/Atlanta, GA, without my husband.  He made the long hike down to the river where he captured beautiful photos for me to paint.  I can get to most of the areas, but this was an arduous hike.

Atlanta is a big city and people here don't realize there are thousands of acres along the Chattahoochee River that have been preserved as part of the National Park Service.  When you get out in these areas, you realize you could be anywhere! The scenery is breathtaking, there are no sounds of cars, the air is fresh, and it's quiet!

My 48"x36" acrylic painting of Sope Creek, is titled, "Autumn Promise".  I'm thankful to live in such a beautiful area where I can get lost in nature and have my artistic senses refreshed.

Crucifixion of Jesus Painting by Jill Saur

Painting the crucifixion of Jesus was an emotional endeavor for me.  Every stroke, every hue, pierced my heart and caused deep reflection.  My 20"x16" acrylic painting is titled, "Golgotha", and it remains in my personal collection.

Written seven hundred years before the birth of Jesus, the jewish prophet Isaiah wrote, "He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief, and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.  Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed." Isaiah 53:3-5<... more »

"A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease". - John Muir

My summer aspen tree acrylic palette knife painting is titled, "Eye Of The Beholder". The fallen trees represent those in our lives who are no longer with us, but will forever remain in our hearts and minds.  As John Muir says, "These trees are now silent, but their songs never cease." 

Have a wonderful Thursday! - www.JillSaur.com

This is a an aspen forest just outside of Crested Butte, Colorado.  It's up in Kebler Pass, which has one of the largest aspen forests in the United States.  The views are breathtaking!

The authorities say there aren't any wolves in Colorado.  Just over a year ago,  my husband and I came across two them several  miles from this forest.  We weren't more than ten feet away when they passed in front of us.  

My current aspen tree landscape paintings have been inspired from this forest up in Kebler Pass.  I came home with over two thousand photos! 

Thanks for viewing! - Jill  www.JillSaur.com

Van Gogh Stunning Use Of Complimentary Colors
Title:  "Vase With Daisies And Anemones"
Painted In Paris In The Summer Of 1887

This oil on canvas by Van Gogh is rendered with beautiful  complimentary colors (colors that are opposites on the color wheel).  In this case the opposites are blue and orange, purple and yellow, and red and green.  This is known as a six tone chord or hexagon.

Have a Happy Monday!  -  www.JillSaur.com

Hawaii Painting 48"x36" Commission By Jill Saur

This was a birthday gift commissioned by an adoring husband for his wife.  He brought me a photograph of their favorite lookout spot in Hawaii.  This 48"x36" acrylic painting is titled, "Hawaiian Splendor".  

I love taking on these big requests.  They give me the opportunity to paint my heart out and work with great clients!

Paul Cezanne "The Card Players*

Filled with vibrant and subtle hues, this is one of my favorite works by Paul Cezanne.  His use of light, color, and composition is masterful in this timely piece.  

Reflective of a time when two friends simply sat down to enjoy a game of cards, without the distraction of cell phones and technology, this painting almost creates a yearning for days gone by!

Great Smoky Mountains Painting By Jill Saur

The Great Smoky Mountains are laden with treasure.  This stream is just several miles from Cades Cove in the Treemont area.  The path and stream, up to the waterfall at the top, has giant boulders and craggy old rocks that hold secrets of days gone by.

My 14"x11" acrylic palette knife painting, "Iambic Flow" was inspired by my love for The Great Smoky Mountains and my own photography.  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

Pear Still Life by Jill Saur

I sold this oil palette knife painting to a collector several months back.  I was inspired by the energy of the universe and its effect on all living and organic things. 

I titled this piece, "Solitude", to show that even when we are at our most still place, there is a world of energy moving about and within us.  Thanks for viewing and have a beautiful day!  www.JillSaur.com

 *Aspens In Summer* By Jill Saur

I'm hoping to return to Colorado this year.  The beautiful white aspen trees display their white trunks against a sea of emerald greens and cobalt blue skies.  This is where I find inspiration for my paintings.

I sold this little 12"x12" acrylic painting, "Dawns Serenade", to a  patron here in Atlanta.  I'm deeply grateful to those who collect and appreciate my work.  Thank you!  www.JillSaur.com

Vincent Van Gogh's Birthday Today

Born on March 30th, 1853, Van Gogh created over 2,000 works of art on canvas and paper.  He only sold one painting in his entire life and yet he is one of the most recognized artists of all time!

He is a man that, against all odds, produced an incredible legacy in a short period of time.  Van Gogh didn't start painting until he was in his early twenties and he died when he was only thirty-seven!  His brother, Theo, was so grief stricken at the loss Vincent that his own health declined and he died a year later.

No artist has had the single most effect on my later years as an artist as Vincent Van Gogh has.  His knowledge and use of color was so profoundly understated that I don't think the majority of the general public realize what a true genius he was.  His use of complimentary colors and their tints and tones stillamaz... more »

“A tree against the sky possesses the same interest, the same character, the same expression as the figure of a human. – George Rouault”. (French painter)

"Aspen Dance" is an oil palette knife painting (8"x8").  I painted this after musing over one of my trips to Colorado, where the dancing white aspen trees against the blue azure sky are a site to behold.

Van Gogh "Village Street And Steps In Auvers With Figures"

Van Gogh wrote just as fluidly and brilliantly as he painted.  Please enjoy the following words that he wrote to his brother, Theo.

"But I cannot help thinking that the best way of knowing God is to love many things. Love this friend, this person, this thing, whatever you like, and you will be on the right road to understanding Him better, that is what I keep telling myself. But you must love with a sublime, genuine, profound sympathy, with devotion, with intelligence, and you must try all the time to understand Him more, better and yet more. That will lead to God, and that will lead to an unshakeable faith."

Have a beautiful Saturday! - Jill

Van Gogh "Peasant Woman Binding Sheaves after Millet" 1889

"To suffer without complaint is the only lesson we have to learn in this life." - Van Gogh

Van Gogh had a heart for those who were poor and suffering and especially those who were doing manual labor in the fields.  He portrayed this woman with the utmost of dignity.  The green colors he used represent pride, serenity, and fertility.  The movement in his brushstrokes are sublime!

One of my students told me that she was recently traveling on a business trip and had an opportunity to see some of Van Gogh's paintings in an exhibit.  She said that she has a new found appreciation for his work.  That made me smile!  - Jill Saur  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

Summer Aspen Tree Painting by Jill Saur

“A tree against the sky possesses the same interest, the same character, the same expression as the figure of a human. – George Rouault”.   (French painter) 

I hope your Tuesday is filled with the joy of discovering something new and fresh here on G+ as well as this incredible world of ours!

I rendered my 38”x48” acrylic aspen tree painting with brush and palette knife.  I closed my eyes and mused on one of my trips to Colorado, where the blue azure sky against the dancing white aspen trees ignite a flame of inspiration.  The title of this painting is, “Resilient Beauty”.  It hangs in the home of one of my patrons.  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

"Albert Bierstadt Master Artist" By Jill Saur

Albert Bierstadt was born in Germany in 1830 and grew up in America.  He was a prolific artist who painted the West but who also joined a group of artists in New York, known as the Hudson River School.  These artists traveled up and down the Hudson River and painted breathtaking scenes with a luminous glow.  Bierstadt is often categorized as a Luminist Painter. 

Of all his paintings, “Among the Sierra Nevada Mountains” is one of my favorites.  It measures 72”x120”.  This is an enormous work of art!  As an artist, I can truly appreciate the complexity of his accomplishment.

Albert Bierstadt was a master artist.  After studying his work, I would venture to that he was a student of “seeing” and of life itself.  He was dedicated, passionate, and he saw his work through to completion.  Iwould say that long a... more »

Zig Ziglar

Zig Ziglar wrote over two dozen books and had millions of followers who adored his southern wit and quirky voice.  I was among those who were impacted by his teachings.

Just over a year ago he passed from this life.  He lives on in the hearts and minds of those who realize he was a national treasure.

"The Love Of Painting" By Jill Saur

I love picking up a blank white canvas.  I love contemplating the possibilities of what will emerge when I let myself go.

I love the musing of which brush I will select, or which brush will select me.  My brushes are like old friends with whom I am very familiar, yet I still find delight in what they are capable of doing.

I love picking up my palette knife. It is the instrument that will facilitate the mixing and dividing of hue, as well as the application of rich, dramatic texture that will bring my paintings to life.

I love opening the jars of paint.  Their rich, lustrous hues remind me of how they’ve impacted my life. The vivid blues speak of my first bicycle, and the shimmering waters of the ocean at dawn.  The golden yellows ignite memories of the sun rising over the great expanse of the AtlanticOcean... more »

"Pear Painting" By Jill Saur

I set up my still life and looked at that pear and thought, "This reminds me of somebody I know who could charm a grumpy old man into being a sweet little boy again".   

My 8"x8" acrylic palette knife painting is titled, "Charmed".  It's loaded with texture and my favorite blues.  It's just waiting to put a smile on the face of its future collector.  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

Winter Aspen Tree Painting by Jill Saur

"Towering genius disdains a beaten path.  It seeks regions hitherto unexplored." - Abraham Lincoln

Sometimes the path of most resistance reveals the greatest discoveries.  This has certainly held true in my life.  My 30"x40" acrylic painting, "Enchanted Path", beckons the viewer to take that journey.

One of my collectors in New Mexico owns this original.  To see more of my available work, please visit:  www.JillSaur.com.

"I am still learning." - Michelangelo

I love this quote from master artist, Michelangelo.  Personally, I feel there are still many discoveries yet to be made, many paintings yet to be rendered, and so much more to be learned.  How exciting!  That means there is much to look forward to!

This is my four foot by four foot acrylic palette knife painting, "Absolute Joy".  It's currently hanging in Galerie Matilda,  in Historic Roswell, Ga.  I had a lot of fun with this one!  www.JillSaur.com

My 16"x20" acrylic painting, "Paso Doble", reflects the dance of life.  Sometimes the dance is soft and melodic, while at other times, the dance is so dramatic that it requires the fortitude and strength of a matador.

Thanks for viewing!  www.JillSaur.com

American Artists, Andrew Wyeth, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O'keeffe, influenced my early years of painting in watercolor.  Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Cezanne have deeply influenced my oil and acrylic paintings today.  With brushes, paint and canvas, Van Gogh especially inspires my whimsical lines and my desire to bring my trees and other subject matter to life!

This is my 12"x12" acrylic palette knife painting that I've titled, "Joy".
I've sold all of my paintings in this series except for this one, which I have in my personal collection.  To see more of my work that's available, please visit my website.  www.JillSaur.com

This is my new 12"x12" acrylic palette knife painting on canvas.  It's titled, "Blue Flowers".

When I work with my palette knife, I use an impasto style that I developed for myself over fifteen years ago.  The richly textured paint seemingly brings my trees and flowers to life.  

My patrons tell me they feel like they can walk into one of my landscapes or reach out and pluck a petal from one of my flower paintings.  That makes me smile!  www.JillSaur.com

Fall Aspen Tree Painting by Jill Saur

Four feet tall by three feet wide, my original acrylic painting on canvas is titled, "Sequestered Dream".  I was inspired to paint this after one of my trips to beautiful Colorado.  

My sister and I traveled hundreds of miles from Taos, New Mexico, to a remote mountain in eastern Colorado.  We discovered that some of the largest aspen trees in America grow in this one forest.  The trees were massive, mesmerizing, and simply other-worldly.  www.JillSaur.com

Have A Lovely Weekend!

Some flowers from my garden rendered in acrylic on a 10"x10" canvas and sold to a collector in Atlanta, Georgia.  I mostly paint on large canvases, but when I do these smaller works of art, I really enjoy it!  www.JillSaur.com

Fall Aspen Tree Painting by Jill Saur

"A tree is such a rich metaphor in a million beautiful ways.  You can consider a tree growing and consider its connectedness to all things above and under the ground." - Ann Brashares

"Winter Solstice", the title of my 18"x24" acrylic fall aspen tree painting, shows fall giving way to winters first snow.  This painting is about the transitions we face in life, and the path symbolizes the journey we must take through those transitions.  

As the quote says, a tree is such a rich metaphor in a million beautiful ways!   www.JillSaur.com

"Oh my dear, love is so fragile but also very beautiful, just like a butterfly. Promise me you'll never put your heart in the hands of a savage , but instead give it to another butterfly." - Dagmar D.L.R.*

My little 8"x10" acrylic butterfly painting is titled, "The Feast".  At the moment, it remains in my personal collection.  It was inspired by a fascinating little creature that I followed about in a meadow one summer.  It lighted on a flower just long enough for me to capture a quick shot for reference.  www.JillSaur.com

This is a forest of trees just minutes from where I live.  It's a great place to take a walk and reflect on life.  It's a great place to look up!

Hope your Sunday is a beautiful one!  www.JillSaur.com

 "I Never Give Up" By Jill Saur 

For me, there are three types of paintings that turn out well.  In each case, I never give up!

1.  The first type of painting is the one that flows effortlessly. It’s like a fine tuned symphony producing beautiful music.  I suppose it's like catching the "perfect wave" and riding it all the way to the shore.  I never give up!

2.  The second type of painting is the one that I wrestle with.  I find myself having to paint over certain areas again and again.  Actually, the ones I struggle with lead to new discoveries and results that surprise me.  They afford an opportunity for growth.  This struggle reminds me of the grain of sand in the oyster.  The oyster takes the annoying grain of sand and spins a beautiful pearl.  Some of my best works have resulted from these paintings.  I never give up!
3.  The third... more »

Impressionistic Red Pepper Painting By Jill Saur

I painted and sold this 11"x14" acrylic palette knife painting, "Red Pepper Delight", to one of my avid collector's from out-of-state.  I'm often asked if I ever miss my paintings when they leave my studio.  Looking at this little guy, I'd have to say, "Yes, I do."  

I'm extremely thankful to be able to do what I love and call it my profession.  I've been working at this for a long time and I understand what Thomas Jefferson said when he wrote, * "The harder I work, the luckier I get".*  Thanks for viewing, Jill Saur.  www.JillSaur.com

I had several of my clients over for dinner the other night.  They asked me what it was like to live in the south (with no aspen trees) and be an aspen tree landscape painter.  

I told my patrons that they would be surprised at how many people live in the south and take their vacations in Colorado and they love aspen trees.  My work is collected nationally, but many of my patrons live right here in Atlanta, Georgia!

Colorado is where I get my inspiration  to paint.  I have thousands of breathtaking photographs that my husband and I have shot from up in Kebler Pass, all the way to Estes Park.  You don't have to live in Colorado to paint it.  I bring all that beauty back with me where it lives in my mind and heart.  - Jill Saur  www.JillSaur.com

Aspen Tree Painting by Atlanta Artist, Jill Saur

"In all nature, for instance in trees, I see expression and soul." Van Gogh

Six feet wide and four feet high, my acrylic aspen tree paintings are titled, "Brilliant Serenade" and "Gathering Brilliance".  These two paintings hang side by side and each contain their own pathway into the distance.

Thanks for viewing. - Jill Saur  www.JillSaur.com
