- keeping paint on brush & lens focusedArtist, presentAs 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.
The more formal blurb:
British Columbia artist and photographer Terrill Welch’s distinctive palette, quick sure painting strokes, and photographic images capture forest, sandstone, sea and sky. In addition to her landscape work, Terrill has an ongoing summer affair with still life photography and painting. Terrill's work reminds us that there is only one moment – this one. Where does her powerful yet gentle creative expression come from?
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.
A complete artist’s biography is located on Terrill’s popular Creative Potager blog at http://creativepotager.wordpress.com/artist-biography
Happy International Women's Day!
I have a good friend coming to visit for the day. I will take her to lunch at the Camassia Café and if the weather holds we will go for a long walk. What about you?
How will you celebrate International Women's Day?

Life is always an interplay of light and dark, white and black, ups and downs; for a painter, it is a daily first-hand experience. Some moments, though, are blacker than others -- and yet there is always light, and a path to courage, compassion and dignity.
A Tall Tale of Autumn Stuart River 12 x 16 inch oil on canvas
I have chosen this specific painting for sharing today because
asks that for this #firstfridayartwalk to:
try and make our Art Walk meaningful in the context of the developing crisis in Ukraine and Europe: if you have an artwork related to the peace, grace, shared humanity -- please share it. If you have a painting playing on the blue-yellow contrast (like this Van Gogh below [shared with original post]), please share it too -- if you want to show support to Ukraine and all its people (yellow and blue are the colours of their national flag).
Here is what I have to say about this painting:
These are my childhood trees – popular trees growing on the riverbank. They are my first subject of paintings. I cannot pick up a brush to render them without being transported back through time with its many stops before these trees. These are trees I met before there was even a field in front of them. These are trees I introduced my first lover and later others. Then much later my now husband. These are trees I walked beside while I carried my babies and then with them while they carried theirs. These are the trees that my mother and father have walked with me since they were younger than I am today. Painting the spaces of light and shadow in between is filled with the residue of many visits. It is a tall tale that gets taller with each telling. All I intended to do was to use up the paint leftover on the palette.
I believe it meets the criteria and I am humbled and honoured to share it with you for this purpose today.

On a more serious note, let's try and make our Art Walk meaningful in the context of the developing crisis in Ukraine and Europe: if you have an artwork related to the peace, grace, shared humanity -- please share it. If you have a painting playing on the blue-yellow contrast (like this Van Gogh below), please share it too -- if you want to show support to Ukraine and all its people (yellow and blue are the colours of their national flag).
I just approved a proof for a new business card that uses part of this painting on the front side.
All these things seem superficial and even a bit silly to be thinking about and working on with all the global tension at the moment. I suppose it is what I do when I feel helpless. As long as there is water to boil and a tea bag to put in it, I shall be the one who will say, let's make tea and sit and sort this out. A human reaction I suppose.
Some moments are impossible to forget. Such is a late afternoon walk in this location on the shores of Mayne Island. Meander along a trail by the sea, taking time to stop and let the moment settle in. This large contemporary Canadian west coast landscape painting is a full 60 x 36 inch oil on canvas with 1.5 inch edges that will be painted as desired by the purchasing art collector.

I want o be clear, this painting is five feet tall and three feet wide. As a contemporary Canadian landscape painter, I only do a few paintings this size because I still want room to move in my work space. Yet, I can’t seem to resist lugging these grand-size canvases back to the studio and letting loose with the paint.

He, himself, was detained overnight and sentenced to pay ten thousand rubles -- almost twice his monthly income. He is going to participate in the next anti-war demonstration on Saturday, too.
