True Is False... by © Janis Zroback


Available to buy on…

Grinning yellows,
spinning reds.
Take your fill -
let the spectacle
astound you!

Seething shadows
breathing lies.
You can fool
any friend who
ever knew you
!..A Lloyd Webber


  • A companion piece to “Masquerade”, “True Is False” is a portrait where the most important element cannot be seen…the eyes…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper*…


face, portrait, woman, girl, masquerade, mask, janis zroback, red, blue, green, yellow, watercolour

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..
