Sandstone Cave Galiano Island, British Columbia Canada

There is this wonderful sense of being able to feel the movement of water from inside the cave looking back onto the sea.

For your Sunday viewing pleasure - the latest not-quite-so-large painting "On Edge At Cape Bear PEI" 28 x 24 inch oil on canvas at:

Securing one's footing and leaning up to the edge of a Prince Edward Island red sandstone cliff that is tipped towards the sea is a good reminder of the eternity of change.

Cape Bear is on the eastern side of Prince Edward Island and this view is located where the Cape Bear lighthouse has been moved away from the edge of the eroding shore. It was spring when I was there with moody muggy weather enhancing a natural melancholy that comes with such a simplistic view.

You too Rusty. We are having glorious sunny fall days here and my husband and I are taking great advantage of it with long walks along seaside trails.

Today's work hasn't progressed very far but I got a start on it anyway. The canvas is 28 x 22 inches. The subject is a rocky ledge out at Cape Bear on PEI. I am likely going to need to work on the piece in short stretches until Friday as I am teaching an oil painting class tomorrow afternoon. Will keep you posted.

From yesterday afternoon....

Tree View Henderson Hill Mayne Island B.C.

The climb is steep and arduous but the view always seems worth the effort.

Sunday morning's work-in-progress on a 24 x 30 inch cradled wood panel is of Charlottetown in PEI.

I am working in walnut oils to get all the soft muted tones this piece needs. My intention is to keep the lively sketch feel to the work from beginning to completion. This will likely be an illusion as I suspect the work may have to be completed in layers rather than wet-on-wet to be successful. But it is my birthday today and it seems like working on this painting is about the best way to spend the day ;)

Some days it is harder than others to get something done when the last of the autumn sun keeps its golden glow on such beauties as these two Mayne Island B.C. lawn ornaments...

Today's work is a quick 8 x 10 inch acrylic plein air sketch of Active Pass from Felix Jack, Mayne Island B.C.. The sketch is part of my research and preparation for a large painting of this grand view. The light is often dramatic and changes quickly from here. I could do a hundred paintings of this scene and each would be different. How am I ever going to decide which one or ones to paint!?

Thank you everyone! I am just about to leaf through my available blank canvases and choose one for a larger work. The morning is overcast but possibly it will clear in the afternoon and I will see about gathering some more reference images. But with only a few adjustments, the composition is set. As Pierre Bonnard is quoted to have said - A painting that is well composed is half finished." I tend to think this is often so.

Today's work resting on the easel all shiny and wet....

On Edge at Cape Bear PEI 28 x 24 inch oil on canvas

My intention was to have the viewer uncomfortable present to the eternity of change. Seems a fitting subject for fall while painting our past spring on Prince Edward Island.

I am pleased to present the latest in my East Coast Landscape paintings....

Charlottetown PEI Harbour 24 x 30 inch oil on wood
available at:

There is a memory of cold, stiff fingers working a brush over a surface in the early spring morning air as I stand at the edge of the Charlottetown harbour. There is a sense of knowing exactly what is before me. Then, everything dissolves into fragments and reforms - though only slightly differently, the view is of an unknown time that is somehow more familiar than the present. Space and history merge. What is left is a quick glance up Great George Street to the St. Dunstan's Basilica from Confederation Landing in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

These eight landscape paintings have had their last lecture from the artist before getting dressed in rain gear and loaded into the Outback, Red Rosie, for delivery and hanging at the Emily Carr Branch of the Greater Victoria Library in Uptown Victoria B.C..

They have promised me they won't be difficult or wiggle when we climb the ladder to get above the stacks. They nodded in agreement about hanging straight. They have each been assigned a specific wall and are prepared to go to that exact location immediately upon arrival. Time will be of the essences. We will have no more than 60 minutes to get them from car to wall before the library opens. Now, it is up to the ferry god mother to get us across the inside passage on schedule on the early boat. And the alarm clock. For Jiminy Cricket! - Don't sleep through the alarm!!!

Wish us luck!

Terrill Welch, larger landscape paintings, solo show "Above The Stacks - Land and Sea" September 1st to October 31, 2016 at Emily Carr Branch of Greater Victoria Library, 101-3521 Blanshard St. (at Uptown) in Victoria B.C. Open Mon – Sat 10:00am to 6:00pm. Closed Sundays.

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 :)
