This magnificent southern live oak tree (that you see here in my painting) used to hang over the Chattahoochee River and grace all who passed by.  Over the years, I've had the privilege of rendering my impression of this tree on canvas.  Last year, the parks department must have felt that the decay in the tree had taken its toll and they had it cut down.  I miss this tree.  I used to sit on the bench underneath its canopy and watch the river swiftly flow by.  I'm so glad I have the photos to refer to whenever I feel the urge to paint a memory.

This 30"x40" acrylic painting on canvas is titled, "The Hastening Tree".  The original hangs in my personal collection, but it's available to purchase in a limited edition giclee.  To contact me, please CLICK HERE.

Commission A Painting In Atlanta, GA

COMMISSION A PAINTING IN ATLANTA
I was recently commissioned to paint this acrylic painting on canvas, “Profound Joy.”  I had a wonderful new client contact me from Massachusetts.  Here, you can see and read the process for commissioning a painting and read my clients review that she happily wrote within two days of receiving her painting!  Thank you, Wendi!  It was more than a pleasure doing business with you! - Jill Saur

From My Client who commissioned, “Profound Joy."
”My husband and I commissioned PROFOUND JOY to be painted by Jill Saur after discovering her work online.  What a professional!  What a talent!  What a true dream to work with!!!!  We live in New England but thanks to phone calls, FaceTime, emails, texts…. it felt like we were local.  Jill put her heart and soul into our painting and it shows.  We are thrilled with PROFOUND JOY!  Not only do we love the piece we commissioned but we also fell in love with a piece that Jill painted from our painting's leftover colors.  It also looks gorgeous in our home.  Jill is full of passion and I am so happy that I took this "journey" with her.  Her work will forever mean a great deal to me.  Thank you, Jill!  -  Wendi Ayer - Medfield, Massachusetts

Wendi lives in Massachusetts.  She found me by doing an internet search.  After going through all the paintings on my website, she found a painting that she loved and saw that it had been sold.  She asked me if I could paint a similar one, only much larger.

After agreeing on a price, the first thing I did was a work-up of the general appearance of the larger painting I would do, and I included the chart of all the colors that I thought she would love.  I mailed this along with a copy of our agreed contract to Wendi so that she and her decorator could view it first-hand.  Because colors on a computer screen can vary, I wanted Wendi to see the colors in person.  I knew she was re-decorating the entire room and she wanted this painting to be the centerpiece.

I sent Wendi numerous updates as the painting progressed and she was able to tell me what she liked and where she wanted me to add more or less of the colors that she loved.

This is my finished painting hanging in the living room of Wendi’s beautiful home.

Inside Vincent Van Gogh's Sunflower Painting

art classes roswell ga
©2015 Photo Of The Inside Of Van Gogh's Sunflower by Jill Saur

IRRESISTIBLE MOMENTUM

The night before my trip to New York, I downloaded the collection of Van Gogh's letters to my iPad.  I've been reading his letters off and on for the past few years.  This particular letter to Theo was the one I read the morning that I was getting ready to see the Van Gogh exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.  How ironic that Vincent considered himself a nonentity in the eyes of most people and fast forward to today and people flock to the museums to gaze upon his work.  I love his words describing that he was driven with an irresistible momentum:

“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.” - Vincent Van Gogh

I relate to being drawn and driven to paint with an irresistible momentum.  When I'm captured by an idea, an image, a feeling, or a thing of beauty, I'm compelled to express those thoughts and emotions with paint, brushes, palette knife and canvas.

When I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York city several weeks ago, I gazed upon the works of Vincent Van Gogh with utter amazement.  The painting above was completed by Vincent in 1887, three years before his death.  I could get lost in this painting.  The texture, the colors, the feeling, all simply stunning.  I zoomed in to capture the inside of this piece.  In my three visits to the museum over a period of four days, I would say I returned to see this painting at least ten times.  When I left, my heart was full. - Jill Saur

This morning I was reminiscing how positively wonderful my patrons are. My acrylic palette knife painting, "Rhapsody For You," was purchased to hang in a gorgeous home, over an exquisite fireplace.  My client showed the utmost respect and genuine interest in selecting her painting.  It was rewarding to see her so happy with my work!

This is me with the painting to show the scale of my larger work.  Funny thing, I'm working on an even larger painting right now, and I caught myself thinking, "This canvas just isn't big enough!"  My client wrote the following words describing her purchase:

"I love my painting, 'Rhapsody For You', that I purchased for my home; it has been a fabulous addition!  The painting is very colorful and emotional.  Thank you for this Jill!  Every time I look at the painting, I can feel the joy that you put into the artwork.  I especially like how the painting looks at night, when it seems to glow.  I have the painting above my fireplace, and smile every time I see it!" - Bridgette K. - Roswell GA

If you're looking for a painting, even an over-sized one, for that special place in your home or business, I paint commissions.  Please read about it on my website.  CLICK HERE

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 Chattahoochee River. 
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! - Jill Saur

I'VE GOT THE BLUES 

Really, I've got the blues, but it's all good, no it's great!

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


This 36"x36" acrylic palette knife painting is one of my new works.  There isn't one brushstroke on it!  All the paint was applied with three different palette knives.  It was a bit time consuming but the result is well worth it.  It positively glows with brilliant hues. 

This piece is listed on my website for $5,500.  It's possible that I'll be making a hand-embellished giclee available in the near future.  Purchasing is easy.  If you have any hesitation purchasing a work of art over the internet, I hope you'll read what my happy patrons have to say about buying artwork from me.  CLICK HERE


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

Atlanta Artist, Jill Saur, Inspired By Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh, Asylum In St. Remy Painting


I vividly remember the day that Van Gogh captured my attention, impacted my emotions and effected my artistic sensibilities.  It was about ten years ago at the High Museum in Atlanta, GA.  I was there to see an exhibit on the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters.  I walked around a corner and looked up to see Van Gogh’s self portrait that he rendered of a Gustave Dore painting, while he was in the asylum at Saint-Remy (see painting above).  This is certainly not one of  Van Gogh’s paintings that comes to most peoples minds, but it’s the one that made tears well up in my eyes.  


painting classes alpharetta ga
Vincent Van Gogh, "Cafe Terrace At Night"

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 complimentary colors with their tints and tones was profound.  Van Gogh was an artistic genius.  Comparing the painting above with the painting below, one can see that Vincent dared to paint the complete spectrum of his emotions.  His transparent honesty and artistic genius amaze me to this day. 



Although Van Gogh created over 2,000 works of art on canvas and paper, and sold only a handful of paintings in his entire life, he is one of the most recognized artists of all time!  If you want to broaden your insights into the life of an artist who was a true genius, study the life, works, and letters of  Vincent Van Gogh! - Jill Saur, Jill Saur Fine Art, LLC.

The following words are from a book titled, "Windows Of The Soul" by Ken Gire.  "There is a story about the famous illustrator and painter Gustave Dore in which one of his students had just finished a painting of Jesus and handed it to him for his critique.  Dore studied it, his mind searching for the right words.  At last he handed it back to the student.  "If you loved Him more, "he said, "you would have painted Him better."
Those words struck a chord with me because I'm usually asking my students, "What do you want to work on next?"  I believe it's really important for artists to find what they're passionate about and paint that.  If you love the subject matter that you're working on, you're going to be ALL IN!  When you find that which you love and you capture it with your own camera, you're going to have all your senses engaged when you work on your painting.  
I've been doing a study of a scene that I came upon while on vacation in Taos, New Mexico.  When I'm applying the paint, I can remember the brilliance of the sun, the highlights of the light on the quaking leaves and the sound and smells of the rushing water as it splashed upon the rocks in front of me.  When I'm painting and I'm ALL IN, invariably, I create my best works. 
The painting above is sold but I’m working on several studies of the same scene right now.  If you’re interested in this scene or any of my other paintings, please email me.  EMAIL

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.  

Whether you live in Georgia or any other of our beautiful states, and you’re looking for  large paintings to fill a room or a wall, please consider commissioning me to paint something just for you.  I work closely with my clients to ensure their satisfaction.  Please visit my website to see what my patrons have to say about commissioning a painting with me.

I love Van Gogh.  People often associate Van Gogh with his tumultuous life and don't realize that he  was a  master artist and an expert in color theory.

A few weeks ago I was inspired to paint this thickly textured palette knife painting using brilliant azure blues, effusive reds, and warm golds.  Though spontaneously painted,  I still apply color theory and the rest of the elements of principle and design.  After concentrating on using those elements for so many years, they just seem to come naturally to me now.  So, when someone asks me how long it takes me to complete a particular painting,  I'm tempted to say, "Oh, about thirty years or so."  However, I just smile and say, "Long enough".

This 16"x20" textured acrylic palette knife flower painting is titled, "Red on Blue".  This painting sold through one of my representing galleries.  I'm extremely thankful to have folks who appreciate and love my work.  If you're interested in purchasing a similar original, please consider commissioning a painting with me.

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”  - John Muir

It's no secret how I feel about trees and forests.  You'll usually find some sort of path in my aspen tree paintings.  To me, our life is all about the journey we take and the choices we make.  

My new 10"x10" acrylic aspen tree palette knife painting, "Blue Essence" is available to purchase by contacting me.  CLICK HERE   To view more of my paintings, please visit my website:  CLICK HERE
