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

Inspired By Van Gogh - Jill Saur

I've Got The Blues!  Really, I've got the blues and it's all good. :)

Captivated by the life and work of Van Gogh, I've been experimenting with his color palette.  It's not far off from the palette I've been painting with, but it's more pure and the blues are making me smile.  

Hope your day is filled with color and lots of blue! - Jill Saur

Rottweiler Painting By Jill Saur

This is Sky, my rottweiler.  She's my studio buddy.  I just finished her 12"x12" acrylic painting portrait, "Sky The Wonderdog."  To me, the most important part of any portrait is the eyes.  Although the colors in this piece are playful and uplifting, the rendering (especially the eyes) is spot on.

ORIGINAL ART ATLANTA By Jill Saur

I live in the beautiful state of Georgia in a suburb of Atlanta.  I often go down to the Chattahoochee River to photograph my favorite places that express the beauty of the Chattahoochee.  When I return to the studio, I select my favorites shots that I know I’ll want to do paintings of.  This 48”x48” painting is from the shoals down at Fords Landing. This is a  large painting.

One of the things I love about the homes in Atlanta is that they have lots and lots of wall space.  Atlanta homes traditionally have large entry ways with tall ceilings that continue throughout the home.  My clients know they can count on me to come up with the right painting for their large wall space, especially when they want to make a statement.  Sometimes that statement is bold and colorful.  Sometimes the statement is calm and tranquil.

Oak Tree Painting By Jill Saur

The Chattahoochee River is one of my favorite places to visit here in Atlanta, Georgia.  My latest painting is a rendering of my favorite oak tree at the river in Roswell, GA.  It was inspired by an early morning visit to the river.  The mist was rising off of the water from the early fog and it was just one of those special mornings that I was able to capture on film and later paint in my studio.

This 24"x30" acrylic oak tree painting on a wide border canvas is titled, "Resilient Refuge".  It's available to purchase by contacting me through my website where you can also see more of my work. www.JillSaurFineArt.com

I love to paint commissions, if you have a special wall and you're looking for just the right size, please consider commissioning your very own one-of-a-kind original.  - Jill Saur

Still Life Painting By Jill Saur

My new 11"x14" acrylic palette knife painting is loaded with texture.  The vibrant hues invite the viewer to enjoy the feeling of this simple but emotive painting.  I've titled this piece, "Best Of Friends".  

I set up this still-life a number of years ago when I had my gallery.  There was a wall outside where I was able to have small photo shoots with different arrangements of objects.

Commissioned Painting On Canvas by Jill Saur

My 18"x36" summer acrylic aspen tree painting, "Resounding Joy", was a painting commissioned by some of my favorite clients.  After purchasing their first painting from my gallery, they decided they wanted another piece for a special place in their home.  They wanted summer aspens and we came up with this idea.  Soon after, they commissioned a larger painting for a summer home they were building in the mountains.  

How fortunate I've been to have such wonderful and appreciative clients!  To learn how to commission a painting, or to view more of my original paintings, please visit my website. www.JillSaur.com

Aspen Paintings By Jill Saur

Life is all about the journey we take.  Every second builds into minutes, hours, days and eventually years.  I think how we spend our minutes lays the foundation for how our years will turn out.

My 12"x12"x1.5" acrylic palette knife painting is titled, "Abundant Journey".  The abstraction represents the unknown years ahead.  The representational aspects of this piece speak to the present moment and the choices we make right now.

This piece is available to purchase by contacting me through my website.  Thanks for viewing! - Jill Saur  www.JillSaur.com

Studio Shot

It was a rare moment yesterday to have cleaned up all my paint palettes, brushes, palette knives and paint after finishing one of my new aspen tree paintings.  

I have pretty nice light that streams in throughout the day.  This year I planted geraniums in pots outside my French Doors.  They provide wonderful inspiration as I paint.  I use the tables to mix paint and  work on smaller pieces when I'm not using my big easels.

Over the years I've worked in tiny studios,  dark basement studios, my own gallery, and now the studio you see here.  It's not the room, it's the heart, the mind, and the soul that puts forth the artwork.  I'm thankful to have a place where I do what I love and love what I do.  I figure that I've logged in about 30,000 hours of painting over the years.  I couldn't feel any more blessed.  I'mthankful t... more »

Abstract Palette Knife Painting 

SOLD to a new collector.  Many thanks to the patron who purchased my 16"x20" abstract palette knife painting, "Imminent Design".  This painting was inspired by the complexity of our Universe and the perfect balance in which it exists.

Creating expressive, joyful works of art for my clients homes and businesses, is what I love to do!  My work is usually featured as the focal point of a room.  Although my studio is in Atlanta, Ga., I work with clients all over the United States!  

My 12"x12" acrylic palette knife painting is titled, "The Wonder Of You".  When I'm not working on large over-size canvases, I like to experiment with some smaller pieces.  

This year, I've been busy with some nice commissions.  I love working with clients and connecting with them and their vision for what they're looking for!  

I have to say, "It's a beautiful life".  Have a wonderful day! - Jill

FOUR WAYS TO DEAL WITH STRESS

The Amazing Dr. Sean Stephenson

My husband had the privilege of meeting and listening to Sean Stephenson speak at a business conference.  Sean is a practicing psychotherapist.  When he was born, his parents were told that he probably wouldn't survive the first day.

Put his name in Youtube and be delighted by any of his other talks!

Enjoy! And, +Sean Stephenson is on G+.  I don't know how much he posts, but if we show him some support, we might be fortunate enough to hear from him here!

Inspired by Yellowstone National Park and the hydrothermal pools scattered about its interior, I painted, "Abstracted Daydream".

Working solely with my palette knife, I created this 16"x20" textured acrylic painting.  I had a lot of fun with this one.  Yellowstone is a National treasure!

My work is available to purchase by contacting my through my website.  Thanks for viewing!  Jill -  www.JillSaurFineArt.com

"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment.  I want to give that world to someone else.  Mose people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.  I want them to see it whether they want to or not." Georgia O'Keeffe

My 16"x20" acrylic palette knife painting exudes a joyful feeling.  I've titled it, "Summer Love".  This piece is available to purchase.

My art studio is in Atlanta, GA, but I ship my work anywhere in the United States and abroad.  Thanks for viewing!  www.JillSaur.com

"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small.  We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time." - Georgia O'Keefe

My 16"x20" acrylic palette knife painting is titled, "Happy In Blue".  It's loaded with texture and emanates joy.  

When I think of the intricate delicacy of flowers, I think of what Jesus said, "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

The Capacity For Astonishment

Martin Glaser, a legendary New York graphic designer famous for creating the ‘I Love New York’ logo, recently spoke about something that’s dear to my heart.  He said, “If you can sustain your interest in what you’re doing, you’re an extremely fortunate person.  What you see very frequently in people’s professional lives, and perhaps in their emotional life as well, is that they lose interest in the third act.  You sort of get tired, and indifferent, and sometimes, defensive and you kind of lose your capacity for astonishment, and that’s a great loss, because the world is a very astonishing place.”

I guess you’d say I’m in the third act of my life.  I still find wonder in observing nature, seeing the cloud formations before a storm, and getting up early to watch the sun rise over the misty waters of the ChattahoocheeRiver.

The overflow of being astonished with life is expressed through my art, my friendships, and the general way that I conduct my business.
I agree with Martin Glaser, the world is a very astonishing place!

Exaggerate The Essential

The intrinsic value of this quote by Van Gogh, is key to many areas of our lives; business, relationships, photography, and art, just to name a few.

Information overload is rampant.  It's easy to lose people with too many details.  I learned early on from the most influential painter in my life, Bud Biggs, that when you drop a jewel in a painting, let it shine. If you add too many jewels, they'll lose their impact.  

As a business owner, I take care of the details.  But when it comes to painting (what my business revolves around), I exaggerate the essential and leave the obvious vague.

I'm curious, how does this apply to you or your business?

Abstract Oil Painting

My 36"x36" abstract oil painting is titled, "Square Dance." It was quickly snatched up by a collector.  

The theme of this painting is, "Opposites Attract".  I applied complimentary colors (colors that are opposite on the color wheel) next to each other,  to create an evocative synergy.

Thanks for viewing!  Have a HAPPY FRIDAY!

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".

I love it when a painting expresses what's going on inside the artist as well as outside.  That's when you have the touch of the master's hand, soul, and spirit!

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!

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."

"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

Aspen Tree Oil Painting

Textured and painted with my palette knife, my 8"x10" oil on canvas aspen painting is titled, "Aspen Breeze".  It was inspired by a heavenly day in the Colorado mountains.

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
