Late October…it had been a cold summer and we hardly hoped for any fruit, but the old stone wall had been kind as in years past, keeping the warmth of the sun in it’s bones, so that the pears grew fat and juicy, hanging so low, we had to tie them to prevent them from falling…then suddenly it was winter and we ran to gather them in…visons of pear jams, compotes and chutneys urged us to hurry before a frost set in…they felt good in the hand, plump and juicy….stored in the root cellar, they will take us through to spring…excerpt…The Old Pear Tree..Janis Zroback

Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

Pears and Lace

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, Janis! Reminds me of a wonderful warm day I spent in a friend’s backyard long ago in Toronto. They had a gorgeous pear tree, full of fruit just like you describe!

  • Thanks so much Ellen..very nice of you…
    Was it downtown Toronto?…there is a huge pear tree in the neighbour’s garden behind my house…it will be too much of a coincidence if it was the same tree…
