I never planted a Poppy…the birds did it for me first of all and later the poppies themselves….they grow like mad in colours that bear no relationship to the rest of the garden…bold reds and peach where I have only soft blues and mauves..
Soon it will be Poppy season…I can’t wait
Toronto, Ontario, Canada…

Poppy Abstract in Watercolour on Arches HP Paper

There are many Poppies in my gallery here…the most popular is the collection called the Poppy Journals..
A mystery story that involves murder and mayhem that I wrote in installments to accompany each painting…to read it you have to start with the last image in the gallery


flowers, garden, janis zroback, watercolour, poppies, red, season, summer, abstract

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..
