Still Life...The Fragment. by © Janis Zroback


Small (22.7" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

There is a gold light in certain old paintings
That represents a diffusion of sunlight.
It is like happiness, when we are happy.
It comes from everywhere and nowhere at once
..Fragment from a poem by D. Justice

Another painting created to evoke the appearance of a fragment of a much larger ancient work… The fabric is worn in places and a bit faded in others but the fruit are still vibrant making the painting keep it’s value though probably created centuries ago….Watercolour on Handmade Paper..


still life, watercolour, janis zroback, blue, green, red, yellow, food, fruit

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..
