Deep Solitudes by ©Janis Zroback

When winter winds are piercing chill,
And through the hawthorn blows the gale,

With solemn feet I tread the hill,
That over-brows the lonely vale

O’er the bare upland, and away
Through the long reach of desert woods,
The embracing sunbeams chastely play,
And gladden these deep solitudes

Walking through the snowy woods at sunset…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper..

  • More Trees in this collection HERE

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..

    Beautiful imagery in accord with the words of Longfellow. Out of curiousity, do the words inspire your painting, or do you find them later to compliment the image? My tendency is to find words from my pictures, and I’ve published a small book (to give away to friends) to this effect. I’ll try to post a page or two from it. :)george

  • Thank you so much George…it can go either way….I am often inspired by things I have read or in the case of music, heard, but sometimes I will paint something and the right verse appears later…
