O Woman.. by ©Janis Zroback
Clear

O woman, you are not merely the
handiwork of God, but also of men;
these are ever endowing you with
beauty from their hearts.
Poets are weaving for you a web
with threads of golden imagery;
painters are giving your form ever
new immortality.

The sea gives its pearls, the mines
their gold, the summer gardens their
flowers to deck you, to cover you, to
make you more precious.
The desire of men’s hearts has shed
its glory over your youth.
You are one half woman and one
half dream
…Tagore….

Watercolour and Charcoal Pencil on Indian Paper

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..

    like the way you have added the body to this one Janis…and with the slight turn of her head makes her very alluring…a dreamlike, feminine feel to this one…with her wispy hair and blue eyes …lovely

  • I wanted it to be that way…glad it was successful…none of my portraits are classic beauties as I want them to evoke an emotion not just represent a face…that’s why I don’t do recognizable people…if they look like anyone it’s an accident…thanks so much…glad you like her…
