Brightness... by © Janis Zroback

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

I have seen the sun break through
to illuminate a small field for a while,
And gone my way and forgotten it.
But that was the pearl of great price,
The one field that had the treasure in it.
I realize now that I must give all that I have
to possess it.
Life is not hurrying on to a receding future,
nor hankering after an imagined past.
It is the turning aside like Moses to the miracle
of the lit bush…
To a brightness that seemed as transitory as your youth
once, but is the eternity that awaits you
…R. S. Thomas

Subtractive stylized painting of an early tulip 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..

    I like the stringy little details in this one Janis. As usual your colours are just fantastic.

  • Yes I was having fun making this a bit stylized as I have further plans for it…painted with my fingers and felt like a kid again, but a lot trickier…thanks so much Jim…

    Beautiful work Janis; love the style and the use of colour that almost gives the impression that it is an invisible tulip or one that is very translucent. It is still only the beginning of spring, hence a transitional time…

  • Thanks so much MuiLing…that was the idea…it is so early you can see through it….transition time again..
