About Barbara Girouard

Artist Statement

Viewing a painting is as close as one can get to a telepathic experience, sharing the vision from the mind of the artist. The challenge for me is to create as accurate a depiction as possible, so the mind of the observer is transported into my vision.


I create from my own visual experiences, hoping to share the emotional stimulation I experienced from the composition, the light and the colours. I chose realism in oil because of the challenges it presents, getting the shapes just right and proportional, colours in perfectly balanced intensity. I put my skills in competition with my vision, hoping that my skills are equal to the demands.


I had painted with acrylics for several years but was never satisfied with my lack of ability to create and blend colours I desired. Through a chance encounter with an acquaintance, I found an instructor who was able to teach me the skills I needed and challenged me to really see shapes, lights and colour. As the saying goes, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.


I feel like I have spent most of my life observing the world around me, storing images in my memory, waiting for the time to release them into my paintings. I most want to convey my reverence for life and all its creations. I hope that I have succeeded in sharing my sense of wonder and appreciation for the world we live on.
