It’s been a good day and my family will eat for a long time….I must rest before I turn towards home…I am weary but happy…winter is coming…the colours of autumn are all around me…it is lonely here, but I am not alone…Janis

A Chinese Brush Painting in Ink and Watercolour on Rice Paper….View large to see the full scope of the painting…

A fisherman spends the night under West Rock,
pails clear river water and burns bamboo

Smoke vanishes, sun rises and no one is seen.
The oar-sound turns mountains and water green.
Floating the central current, he turns to gaze at sky
above rock where mindless clouds chase each other
….Liu Zongyuan


chinese brush painting, inks, oriental painting, janis zroback, watercolour

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..
