“Listen! the wind is rising,
and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings,
now for October eves
!"…Humbert Wolfe

Abstract of the rising wind, and swirl of autumn leaves in Watercolour on Arches Not Paper….


wind, trees, leaves, windstorm, autumn, fall, orange, red, yellow, janis zroback, watercolour, season

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..

    Well done Janis! Even before reading the poem it is so clearly a windy Autumn. It is getting cold out there though the colours of the wind are warm… Beautifully done; and love the style that reflects how temporary the season is.

  • Thank you so much MuiLing. …autumn is so inspiring and a Canadian autumn is especially so…capturing the feeling of wind is a bit challenging so I’m really happy you felt it right away…
