From A Window by ©Janis Zroback

Currently unavailable for purchase



Up here, with June, the sycamore throws
Across the window a whispering screen;
I shall miss the sycamore more, I suppose,
Than anything else on this earth that is out in green.
But I mean to go through the door without fear,
Not caring much what happens here
When I’m away: —
How green the screen is across the panes
Or who goes laughing along the lanes
With my old lover all the summer day
….Charlotte Mew

I am off with Venice for the time being, at least for this portfolio anyway…there are more in my other gallery…
My bedroom window faces east and I often stand there in the early morning watching the sun rise over my back garden with it’s masses of hydrangeas surrounding the small courtyard..
I live in the middle of the city, but trees abound…they are sacred and can’t be touched without a permit, even on private property…
I revel in the early morning sun peeking through the branches of the maple in my garden, chasing the last shreds of night away…
Charlotte Mew says she will miss the Sycamore more than anything else when she is gone..I will miss that early morning sun


Gouache 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..
