The sun, whose rays
Are all ablaze
With ever-living glory,
Does not deny
His majesty
He scorns to tell a story!
He don’t exclaim,
“I blush for shame,
So kindly be indulgent.”
But, fierce and bold,
In fiery gold,
He glories all effulgent
!…Gilbert and Sullivan

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..

    This may be abstracted but I see the whole picture with the lake, the sunset, the reflection on the water…The illumination of the water is just brilliant Janis! Stunning use of color!

  • Thank you Joanne…I wanted to leave much of it to the viewer’s imagination, so deliberately made it amorphous and misty…

    oh that’s really incredible, the way it glows janis!

  • Thank you Karin…I love painting light and shade, but sunlight on water is my absolute favourite…to get the glow means fast, clean colour application, and no premixing….
