Her Picture.... by ©Janis Zroback

To see her is a picture
To hear her is a tune..
To know her an intemperance
As innocent as June.
To know her not…affliction..
To own her for a friend
A warmth as near as if the sun
Were shining in your hand
…Emily Dickinson

Charcoal over Watercolour on Indian Paper…Instead of using charcoal in a positive way by drawing with it, I painted the paper in Indian Red Watercolour, covered it with charcoal, then removed the charcoal to create the face, on occasion cutting right back to the paper below…

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..
