Firebird [enlarge]

 

Painted around 1972, "Firebird" was inspired by Igor Stravinsky's Firebird (Suite 1919). The subtleties of the music are reflected in the graceful use of colors and shapes, shading and depth, that surround the magnificent, vibrant Firebird. This eye-catching painting would be a riveting focal point of any room or office.




Mademoiselle Fifi [enlarge]

 

Painted in 1972, "Mademoiselle Fifi" is an explosion of color that captures the personality of the dainty poodle tucked underneath her soft blanket. Bedroom or boardroom, this striking piece of art will catch the eye and lift the spirit of the beholder.




Snow Cottage [enlarge]

 

This deceptively simply snow scene was painted early in the 1950's - exact date unknown - using oil paints on fiberboard. Paul Janis' mastery of representational art makes "Snow Cottage" come to life.




Autumn I [enlarge]

 

"Autumn I", completed in 1983, is one of a series of impressionist landscapes created by Paul Janis from the 1960's through the 1980's. The unique textured style of oil painting employed for these landscapes, using both brush and palette knife, creates an almost three-dimensional effect, an effect heightened by the subtle and intricate use of colors within the scene.




Winter Majesty [enlarge]

 

"Winter Majesty" was painted by Paul Janis in the mid-to-late 1950's using oil paints on fiberboard. He employed a small palette knife to smooth the layers of paint and created a rough surface that perfectly captures the spirit of a cold hike through a snowy wilderness.




Harlequin [enlarge]

 

Painted in the 1980's, "Harlequin" embodies the bright colors and insouciant character of the court entertainers who originated the term. This painting would be a striking and cheerful addition to any decor.
