Reflections of Venice Italy

These reflections in an antique shop window may be my favourite single image of Venice Italy. The image was taken some place in the Dorsoduro area near the university. This overlaying of time and space tells me how Venice feels and my experience of this floating city in ways where the churches and canals seem to fall short. While I am working on editing photographs the neighbour downstairs is playing classical piano and the noon bells are ringing just outside the window. This particular image seems to hold the full essence of this Venice moment.

Thank you Judi and I know what you mean about how it would be nice to live here for a year. We have nine days and they are slipping away far too quickly.

One of my favourite works from our visit this morning to Dijon Musee des Beaux-Arts.

Étude de tete de jejune fille by Thomas Couture (1815-1879)

It is the limited brush strokes creating such a dramatic effect that will have me going back this afternoon for another look.

Thanks all and it is very exciting Jill indeed. One of the nicest things is having enough time to settle in and get a feel for a place before I set about trying to paint a strange land. I still haven't found "the spot or spots" yet though. That and finding a post office to send a letter to my mom and dad.

As an artist, photographer and writer, I am a woman living a life of simple abundance. My vision for the world is that we are walking in the sunshine of our soul.

I do not live with a dog, a cat, nor rabbit or mouse. All my plants are of the outdoor variety and many are taller than a four story building. I do have a collection of 8 grown children and 5 grandchildren. But mostly, my sweetie and I live a very quiet life on a rural island off the southwest coast of Canada. My studio is in the loft of our strawbale timberframe home. I often do not leave the island for six to eight weeks at a time. My creative subjects are most often about where I call "home." You are welcome to come by if you are ever in the neighbourhood. It is always a pleasure to have studio visitors... or just good company for tea :)

Born in the village of Vanderhoof in north-central British Columbia, Terrill’s art training came at an early age and continued more in the European style of mentoring and tutoring.

Terrill Welch’s work, in water miscible oil paints and photographic canvas prints, showcases the beautiful, mysterious and rugged southwest coast of Canada.

Though locally appreciated, Terrill Welch is internationally recognized.Her paintings and photographs are sold to art collectors throughout Canada and the United States as well as in Australia, England, Norway and Switzerland.  Terrill Welch is named as one of 21 Artists to watch for 2011 by Skinny Artist in its world-wide review.
