Winter is over, and the ache of the year
Quieted into rest;
The torn boughs heal, and the time of the leaf is near,
And the time of the nest
.

The poor man shivers less by his little hearth,
He will warm his hands in the sun;
He thinks there may be friendliness in the earth
Now the winter is done
.

Winter is over, I see the gentle and strange
And irresistible spring:
Where is it I carry winter, that I feel no change
In anything
?…Arthur Symons (1906).

Abstract of an early spring thaw in Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    the wonderful light that brings a new hope to mankind….can’t help but feel great emotion on this day…a great day that a wonderful new Pope has been elected and a gift from God granted to us through Pope Francis…love reflecting on this beautiful painting of yours Janis on what is a most historical day

  • Decent, compassionate and strong is how they are describing him…from what I have seen and heard so far I add humility to the description….renewed hope for the church…
    I am really happy you like the painting…thanks so much for the lovely compliment Tahnja…
