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 :) 

My paintings and photography are profiled at:

Terrill Welch Fine Arts G+ PAGE

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.

To create from what we know is only helpful if we are relentlessly curious about knowing. For example, earlier this week I happened upon the Bang sculpture with 886 antiques stools by Ai Weiwei in the Vancouver Art Gallery. It wasn't my purpose in going to the gallery. Almost as an after thought we went upstairs. Though I had seen photographs of this work before attending, the images had left me rather neutral about the tangle of wood arranged in the large space. However, when I was standing before the sculpture, with viewers weaving in and out of the underneath and pictures gathering like dust on iPhone cameras I was surprised by the intimacy and engagement I experienced from the structure. So much so that I pulled out my own iPhone and took one image for later reference. I kept thinking about the history of those stools and how they found themselves so precariously staked in a Canadian art gallery. I am not finished thinking. I am not finished imagining. I am not even finished researching. This is being relentlessly curious about Knowing.

Sitting in one of my favourite kitchens thinking about making a cup of tea. Tonight is Warhol, dinner and Cezanne likely in that order. Should be fun!

My experience of the North American west coast has expanded over the past 20 days. What a varied, deliciously, sensual and powerful coastline to travel! I am looking forward to being back in my studio and raising my brush to some larger canvases. Until then, a view from slightly inland....

Looks like we are sitting under one of those fog banks like we can see out over the sea in this photograph this morning... or else I am being optimistic and it is actually raining? ;) We are on the move again after breakfast. Depending on how the day goes, we should reach Port Angeles by evening and be home tomorrow evening.

We did eventually get some patches of sun as we traveled J. but it was one of those unpredictable days for sure with just a bit of a bite in the air from off the water. We will be home late tomorrow evening to our own bed overlooking the valley. But geesh! We have had fun :)

Another art commentary is out. This one is by Sam Juliano about "Trail along the Ridge" which is in my upcoming solo exhibit.

#artreview #landscapepaintings #westcoast #art
 
TRAIL ALONG THE RIDGE
Commentary by Sam Juilano
 
Terrill Welch's arresting impressionistic oil painting TRAIL ALONG THE RIDGE showcases a domestic refuge, one that is ideal for meditation and creative inspiration.  There is a pneumatic quality to the seemingly clandestine vantage point overlooking mountains and a wooden valley that would surely give pause for sensory reflections.  The glorious blue sky, bright textures, summer shadows and joyful ambiance define the scene, yet there is a mystique in the central almost intimidating image of the Douglas Fir, which is rooted tenuously near the edge of the ridge, a sitting duck for a storm, yet evincing a look of having survived its share of atmospheric ravages.
 
Everyone can lay claim to a place and a setting they revered since childhood - and the experience is a kind of “Stopping by Woods on a Lovely Day,” when everything comes to a halt, and there is a fusion with nature.  Welch's painting isn't without a more somber context - the tree's slant suggests that such days are in limited number, and are mainly available during late spring and summer, yet there is scenic bliss and inspiration, not only attested by the creator, but to be seen by generous brush strokes of color and a wonderfully serene landscape.  It would be hard to fathom that a hike up this trail wouldn't stoke the happiest of memories and expectations. This is Ms. Welch in radiant mode, and it would bring any room to life, transporting its onlookers to an idyllic hamlet in this island paradise.
 
This 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas painting is part of the upcoming “West Coast Landscape as Home” solo exhibit of paintings by Terrill Welch opening April 4, 2015. More information and detailed viewing of this painting, along with 22 other works, are available at http://terrillwelchartist.com/2015/03/19/west-coast-landscape-as-home-solo-exhibit-of-paintings-by-terrill-welch

Heavy rain is making for a dark but warm, cozy afternoon in the studio. What is a painter to do?

The book by Donna Tartt is a winner of the Pulitzer Prize and published in 2013. The intricate tale has 771 pages of some fabulous reading.

There is only one decision left to make - mint tea or red wine?

Monday will just have to wait .....

One of today's stops - Heceta Head lighthouse complete with iPhone distortion ;) and the view south where I would have liked to have taken a photograph but the view spot was full of cars when we went by. Tonight we are in Yachats, Oregon. More soon!
