Pears on Canvas by Jill Saur

“Love Jo all your days, if you choose, but don't let it spoil you, for it's wicked to throw away so many good gifts because you can't have the one you want.” - Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

This 36"x48" over-sized painting, "Love Triangle", hangs in the home of a patron who had their eye on it for over a year before they purchased it. I've also reproduced this in a hand-embellished limited edition giclee on canvas, for clients who need a focal point for their room and who love the story this painting tells.

This painting is about unrequited love. The two pears on the left represent two people in a relationship, ignoring the third suitor on the right, who eventually has to turn away. Unrequited love is painful. But what we want, is not always what we need or what's best for us.

Floral Still Life Painting by Jill Saur

My 48"x48" painting, "Joyful Encounter" is featured in this months magazine,"Art Galleries and Artist's of the South", by Matilda's Art Gallery in Historic Roswell, Ga. I also had an unexpected surprise when I saw it on television this weekend on HGTV's, "Green Home Giveaway". They were filming the galleries in Historic Roswell and artworks represented by those galleries.

This painting emerged out of my imagination, which is both exciting and challenging at the same time. It might be hard to see in the photo, but the entire painting was executed with a palette knife and it's loaded with texture.

This painting is for sale at Matilda's Art Gallery in Roswell, but you can contact me through my website and I'll put you in touch with them. Thanks for viewing!

"Tools" By Kelli Miller

6x6 oil

Last week we didn't have internet at the studio. Since I've been painting dogs off of the web, I didn't have anything to paint. I also didn't have anything in the studio to set up as a still life. So, here you go. Tools of the trade. I kinda like it!

'All the Kings' Horses....' Contemporary Realism by Paula Peacock

All the Kings' Horses...12" x 16", Oil on Canvas
If you have questions regarding this painting please email me at

I've been thinking about doing this painting for years. I've had a fascination of nursery rhyme origins for quite some time. This painting is about the nursery rhyme, Humpty Dumpty. The following information is an excerpt from;

"Humpty Dumpty was a term used in fifteenth century England describing someone who was obese. Humpty Dumpty was in fact believed to be a large cannon! It was used during the English Civil War ( 1642 - 1649).

A huge cannon, called Humpty Dumpty, was placed on the wall next to St Mary's Church. The historical events detailing the siege of Colchester are well documented - references to the cannon ( Humpty Dumpty) are as follows:
*St Mary's Church is fortified and a large cannon is placed on the roof which was fired by ‘One-Eyed Jack Thompson'
*July 14th / July 15th 1648 - The Royalist fort within the walls at St Mary's church is blown to pieces and their main cannon battery ( Humpty Dumpty) is destroyed.
*The Royalists lay down their arms, open the gates of Colchester and surrender to the Parliamentarians.

A shot from a Parliamentary cannon succeeded in damaging the wall beneath Humpty Dumpty which caused the cannon to tumble to the ground. The Royalists, or Cavaliers, 'all the King's men' attempted to raise Humpty Dumpty on to another part of the wall. However, because the cannon , or Humpty Dumpty, was so heavy ' All the King's horses and all the King's men couldn't put Humpty together again!' "

Could this painting refer to our present US government?

I hope you enjoy! Next up on the easel will be 'There was an Old Woman....'
