Flowers...Magnolia by © Janis Zroback


Small (16.4" x 21.9")

Available to buy on…

A young Magnolia flower about to open, painted on a delicate gauze like background, as if becoming unwrapped for the new season of spring…this time I used softer more antique tones instead of my usual vibrant ones…a tribute to Botanical Art

Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

Did you think
spring would
never come?
Did you think
rain could
overpower the sun?
Did you think
suffocating snows
would deny
The earth
bursting forth,
could the crocus die?
Would grey
always mask
the dawn?
Could silence
always quiet
the song
Of a songbird
on a limb
One bud
bursts forth
let the song
. s.k.lindeman

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..

    lovely watercolour Janis…will look forward to viewing this series…just in time for your Spring and we are now in our autumn but still weather is warm and flowers blooming here in Australia….love the fabric effect in the background and the soft colours….gorgeous!

  • I am gathering up ideas from my photos from last year and other years, as we have no blooms of any kind as yet…in a week or two the tulips will be up… they are about four inches high…so though my paintings will be from older photos, they are brand new ones…thanks so much Linda…
