- Terrill Welch ArtistArtist, presentAs an artist, photographer and writer, I am a woman living a life of simple abundance.
The more formal blurb:
Born in the village of Vanderhoof in north-central British Columbia, Terrill Welch’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 mixable oil paints and photographic prints, showcases the beautiful, mysterious and rugged southwest coast of Canada. Though locally appreciated, Terrill Welch is internationally recognized.
Since 2010, more than 50 of Terrill Welch’s paintings of various sizes and significantly more of her photography prints have found their way into private collections. Many of these paintings have sold while still work-in-progress or resting wet on the easel.
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.
Terrill Welch's work is in collections that also include such renowned Canadian landscape painters as Emily Carr, A.Y. Jackson and Lawren Harris.
"The study of silence has long engrossed me. The matrix of a poet’s work consists not only of what is there to be absorbed and worked on, but also of what is missing, desaparecido, rendered unspeakable, thus unthinkable. It is through these invisible holes in reality that poetry makes its way — certainly for women and other marginalized subjects and for disempowered and colonized peoples generally, but ultimately for all who practice any art at its deeper levels. The impulse to create begins — often terribly and fearfully — in a tunnel of silence. Every real poem is the breaking of an existing silence, and the first question we might ask any poem is, What kind of voice is breaking silence, and what kind of silence is being broken?" - Adrienne Rich
They shall need to rest for a bit and see how they fair upon reflect but for now I am going to go clean some brushes.

On my way to Vancouver where my paintings are being represented at an international art fair Art! Vancouver by Artists In Canada. Should be fun!
The waters were heavy with the long weekend water traffic. So with this post I am including a comprehensive set of guidelines for viewing whales and other wildlife that is published by the Whale Watch Operators' Association Northwest (WWOANW) on their website
Whales orient themselves to their surroundings, to food sources, and to each other, primarily by their sense of sound. Boat noises are much louder underwater than through the air.
Fast turns, accelerations and decelerations make very loud noises underwater. Go slow around whales. Avoid speeding toward whales or trying to intersect their course.
Take your time. Gradually slow your boat to idle speed when you are within a mile or so of whales. The whales may be miles apart from each other. There may be other whales much closer than the ones you last saw.
Try to approach slowly, from behind and off to one side, in a course that will gradually bring you parallel with them and at least 100 yards away from them.
Avoid jumping from one group of whales to another, and avoid "leapfrogging" directly into their path. You are just as likely to see whales when they surface if you remain where you are or continue on the same course and speed when the whales dive.
When it is safe to do so, the best whale encounters may be experienced with the engine turned off. If you have a hydrophone, drop it into the water and listen to amazing orca conversations.
When you leave a whale or group of whales, wait for them to surface safely away from you before crossing their path behind them.
Such a pleasure to share the waters with these fellows.
