Bell Towers of Florence Countryside 16 x 20 inch walnut oil on canvas

This is the point where I almost wish I hadn't shown you the process from beginning to completion. The agonizing psychological conclusions of holding and then wiping out hundreds of years in a few dry brushstrokes while adding a dash of drama is almost too much. But there it is. The naked results. I am finished with it. Yet my eye keeps wandering back and contemplating - what if we were different? What else would be different if we were? Silly questions that forced my hand and are unanswerable.

Would you have been happier with just the end result?

Once in a blue moon on Mayne Island...

Technically this was taken about 6.5 hours before the second full moon in July know as the a blue moon. But I a positive it won't be this pretty at 3:00 am tomorrow morning. At least, I am pretty sure. Enjoy!

Sunset/early dusk is my favourite time of day. Your image captures that beauty well.

Finding a quiet alley in Venice is not as easy as one might think. But over somewhere around the big fish market and then just a few more twist and turns and we are here. Window shutters slap open to the late morning while the clicking of shoes echo into the distance. The warmth softly radiates back to us off of the brick walls where the deep shade is still cool and welcoming. Venetia Italia how many have wander into this wabi sabi alley of yours?

The painting is done I think but will need its final photograph yet.

It is the concept that most came to mind when experiencing Venice Roxana as it seems like a city that is worn down to the nub of its former self and is still much loved and cared for like a favourite pencil.

And so to tie it back, carbohydrates are like concentrated sugar, with lots of H2O removed. And it is all derived from photosynthesis which is a process of sequestering the energy of sunlight. And a couple of tablespoons of oil is the energy equivalent of a man's day of labour. What could be more Organic or Natural.

Back in the studio blocking in a new painting this morning while I mentally roam the wabi sabi streets of Venice as I begin working on the European series again....

Bell Towers of Florence Countryside 7 "resting" 16 x 20 inch walnut oil on canvas by Terrill Welch

If you are walking from Florence south via del Podesta which is part of the old road to Rome take via del Portico to the right that is above Galluzzo. It is the medieval Chiesa di Santa Lucia in the foreground. The church has two bells from the 14th century. The Monastero della Certosa del Galluzzio founded by Niccolò Acciaiuoli in 1342 is on the hillside in the background. Today there are cars and freeways running lengthwise between these two places but from this view one can imagine there being only foot traffic moving along the narrow roads between stone walls from one place to the other.

Didn't know any of this so it's super fascinating. Horrid that such works would be taken from the monastery. Reminds me of the movie "Monument Men" when Hitler was busy removing artworks.

My paintings don't just appear on the canvas with each bit perfectly formed. They are coerced, poked and enticed into existence. I start with an idea about how I want to handle a particular subject and gradually it starts to take shape as the layers of paint and brushstrokes are moved onto the canvas. Bell Towers of Florence Countryside – 16 x 20 inch walnut oil on canvas has been more than a year in the musing and thinking process. It is getting close now but not yet finished. I thought you might enjoy the work-in-progress shots along the way. I will add one or two more photographs to this album as I finish up.

I think it was a whole body teleport to the old road to Rome south of Florence Ray ;) A great way to spend a Friday on the southwest coast of Canada!

And glad you enjoyed the process so far Timo.

From yesterday's early evening walk with the trees next to the sea on Mayne island. It is an ordinary life with extraordinary moments.

It could stand a little more direct light but seems to hold its own Shane. I went in this morning with my good camera so we will see how that works.

Well, time for a break I think....

There is so much more to Venice than light and shadow. But how do I capture this signature essence when Venice creates itself faster in my imagination then the radiating heat off the walls of the buildings or the echoing footsteps in my immediate physical presence? Dear old Venice is trapped in romanticism and my brushes finally had to give in to its stories.

Thanks Edward... I am still looking at it this morning after doing a bit more after this yesterday and trying to decide what else it might need.

Dressed in black and under the spot lights at the largest juried annual exhibition in the region, the Sooke Fine Arts Show, until August 3rd. If you are in the neighbourhood, do drop in and say hello. This is an amazing show overall and well worth at least a 60 minute browse though I recommend staying for lunch or coffee and going through the works more than once.

Introduction
As an artist, photographer and writer, I am a woman living a life of simple abundance.

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 :)
