Rodney Pike2,538,148Best Artist Circle on G+It's been a long time since I've shared this artist circle. It's way overdue. You'll find some of the finest artists and some of the most influential people on Google+ here. My newest addition is a friend from facebook, +Shannon Maer. Please welcome her and share!!2014-06-11 22:02:2248615823CC G+
Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+
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 02:30:531012008CC 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+

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.

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 15:11:29471841634CC 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! In fact, there were too many recommendations to fit into one circle!These two circles are filled with women from all kinds of backgrounds, hobbies, careers, interests, etc. There are artists, photographers, geeks, techies, mothers, wives, writers, entrepreneurs, executives, nurses, cooks, podcasters...anything you can possibly think of! They were all recommended by someone and are all awesome!I've met some great ladies through this experiment and hope to get to know so many of them!2012-02-24 14:45:11292924790CC G+

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.

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

Thanks for viewing! - Jill Saur

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

New York Skyline Painting by Jill Saur

Inspired by my love for New York, I've painted my 12"x12"x1.5" acrylic abstract in deep tones of red and turquoise.  I was born in Manhattan and lived there when I was a young girl.  This vibrant city will always hold a special place in my heart.

Thanks for viewing and have a beautiful Wednesday! - Jill

Canton Street Shops By Jill Saur

This is my latest 20"x20" acrylic painting on  canvas.  With so much detail, this was a true labor of love.  Historic Roswell, Ga., is home to some of the finest restaurants and shops in the entire Atlanta area.  These buildings date back to the Civil War.

This original, "Canton Street Shops" is sold.  However, reproductions 
( in the size of your choice) are available by contacting me through my website.  Thanks for viewing! - Jill  www.JillSaurFineArt.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 »

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

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!

"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.

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.

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.

As an artist, this quote resonates with me on a number of levels.  I'll just be quiet though and let it resonate with you.

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

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.

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

Lionfish Painting By Jill Saur

Lionfish are mysteriously beautiful. Although I've snorkeled in a number of reefs throughout the Atlantic and Pacific, this painting was inspired by photos that I took in the Gatlinburg,  Aquarium, one of my favorite aquariums in the United States.

This 40"x30" oil painting, "My Blue Heaven", is available to purchase.  My contact information is on my website. Have a wonderful friday and thanks for viewing!  www.JillSaur.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
