Night Comes Creeping... by © Janis Zroback

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

Night comes creeping slowly o’er me,
Like a vapor cold and gray;
Dim the track that lies before me,
Lost the lingering smile of day.
As a river, nearing ocean,
Drops the brooklet’s merry bell,
I forget hope’s wild emotion;
Love and life, farewell, farewell
!Rose Cooke

From my collection “The Sea”..

Financial independence allowed Turner to innovate freely; his mature work is characterized by a chromatic palette and broadly applied atmospheric washes of paint. According to David Piper’s The Illustrated History of Art, his later pictures were called “fantastic puzzles.” However, Turner was still recognized as an artistic genius: the influential English art critic John Ruskin described Turner as the artist who could most "stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature, the natural phenomena such as sunlight, storm, rain, and fog. He was fascinated by the violent power of the sea, as seen in Dawn after the Wreck (1840) and The Slave Ship (1840).."wiki..

The third painting in this Turner inspired collection is another very small one..only 3×4 inches, yet I think it packs the same punch as the last one which was three times it’s size…Watercolour on Fabriano 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..

    That’s always a good sign that a piece can hold up to enlargement! Great light and color.

  • thanks so much Cindy…it always fascinates me that the actual size really does not mean much if photographed properly…I don’t actually enlarge it, I just fill the entire frame with the painting as I shoot the photo, the way I do with all of them..
