Blue Flowers In Vase Painting

©1990-2014  Blue Flower Painting by Jill Saur, all rights reserved
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! 


I invite you to become a collector and experience the joy of owning original art that inspires and uplifts your soul! - Jill Saur  www.JillSaur.com

Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Flower Still Life, 12x12x1.5" Oil, "Garden Bounty"

I picked these flowers (peony and hydrangea)  from my garden, and placed them in sunlight.




purchase here
260 + shipping


I have to admit, I struggled with this piece.  I started with a brush, but after much frustration, I turned to my trusty palette knife.  In the end, I am happy with the values, and the glow on the hydrangea on the rigfht.  And the colors, love the colors.  In fact, the more I look at it....the happier I get!

So the moral of this story is, don't give up!




HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear granddaughter, Courtney!!

French Roses and All My Best From Paris - Nancy Medina Art Classes and Videos


French Roses
by Nancy Medina
20X20
Oil on Deep Gallery Wrap Canvas, Sold

Class Demonstration, Frayssinet, France






It's important to learn from your travel experiences, taking note of those important teaching moments,  such as taking selfies facing upward into the rain in front of the Eiffel tower with your eyes open is an exercise in futility. Cafe hopping across Paris with a total disregard for a reasonable eating schedule is highly encouraged. Searching for the Sennelier art store (which happens to reside across from the Musee d'Orsay which rhymes with Monet) is a worthy pursuit, even if you do the entire pilgrimage at sunset, knowing full well the oldest art store in Paris will be closed when you arrive. 

I'm sharing all the best videos, photos, and moments from my month of teaching in France with you on my Facebook fan page, including our tour of Monet's Garden in Giverny. Read more....



Violet clouds, Paris is a delight!

Small Floral Still Life, Daily Painting, "Purple and Yellow" , SOLD

Today I am posting another of my small floral still life series.  I think this one is particularly perky with its polk a dot red mug.

$96. + 6.50



I am finding this series so relaxing to paint.....just what I need during the hectic holiday season.

Yesterday I spent the morning baking and running errands, at 1:00 sharp, my paint group, Pieces of Eight invaded my home for a group project.  I was still cleaning up after their departure when my husband came home with my 10 year old grandson, Trevor.  They had a session of touch football in the front yard while I jumped in the shower and readied myself for a holiday party and play.  Whew!  It makes me tired to just think of it, but it was  a great day.  Although you won't see this post for a while, I am writing it on the morning of our Pieces of Eight Christmas Sale and All Around Great Time.  In a short 45 minutes the fun begins!


So I am enjoying this short moment of inactivity.

Are you ready for the holidays?  I still have to shop, bake, cook.........the list never ends.

Subtleties in Green by Darla McDowell


6x7-Inch Oil on Linen Panel

I loved painting this little pear and all of its imperfections. It served to remind me of the Wabi-Sabi aesthetic. Finding beauty in imperfection and accepting life's impermanence is such a beautiful concept. Nothing lasts. Nothing is finished. Nothing is perfect.

Happy painting!
