Golden Days... by ©Janis Zroback

Yesterdays, Yesterdays, days I knew as happy sweet sequestered days
Olden days, golden days, days of mad romance and love..
Youth was mine, and truth was mine
Joyous free and flaming life forsooth was mine
Sad am I, glad am I, for today I’m dreaming of yesterdays
Youth was mine, the truth was mine
Sad am I, glad am I, for today I’m dreaming of yesterdays
..Jerome Kern

There is a poignant sadness to the last days of autumn, as we recall the carefree days of summer…yet the glorious golden days of fall have their own magic…as I painted this riverside scene I could not help but think of this beautiful song from the 1930s, sung by one of the most wonderful voices in the world

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..

    I`m really sorry about this. Cause you`ve created something so beautiful that I should be enraptured with golden thoughts of youth…
    But it suddenly struck me that this is what the apocalypse will be. One mighty blinding flash of light through natures most beautiful moment in time. Total irony… our destiny for failing to respect the vulnerability of our planet.
    Don`t worry, you`re bound to get one jerk who sees this in a totally perverted way from what you intended. But if it`s of any consolation to you, your painting really did blow me away.
    Bigtime !

  • And I’m so happy it had that effect on you…thank you so much for the insightful comment Billy…I really appreciate it…
