This Garden That Is You
Not For Sale
This is one of those works that has evolved over a considerable period, from the original reference material through a couple of other versions and now this one. In all of the versions, as in much of my other work, it’s the relation between the women that fascinates me. As the colours in the painting took on a jewel-like quality playing off of the golden headscarf, the title emerged and the focus of this version clarified. The edges of the canvas are painted in a continuation of the floral motif.

Oiseau lives and paints in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. While she focuses primarily on portraiture and the figure, plein air landscape painting is also an important part of her practice and inspiration.
"In painting as in life, whatever distance you travel just opens up further vistas for exploration. Subtleties, bold statements, complexities of relationships, colour, colour, colour. I wish I could paint forever!"
