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.

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.

A great opportunity offered by my colleague +Lena Levin . Well worth checking it out. As a collector of her work I know first hand what it is like to have her beautiful paintings in my home.
 
Good morning, dear friends, and fair time of day. I have some news -- over the last month, I've been working on creating this opportunity for you to have an original painting of mine in your home with your budget barely noticing it. All the explanations of how it works are on my main Patreon page linked below!

The set of paintings participating in this first experimental stage is limited, so please check it out NOW if you are interested -- it's all first-come, first-serve. 

And please share this post if you know someone who might be interested in this opportunity -- it will be greatly appreciated!
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

I am in the process of releasing all seven of my northern California paintings. It may take me all day and part of tomorrow to get them up with their specific description and then a website post linking to each specific work. So for now I shall start you with the first or rather the last once the others are added. Here is 1st of several releases to come today "Early Spring Muir Beach Overlook California" 18" x 24" that can be viewed in detail at my Artsy Home online gallery at:

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.

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....

It is raining FINALLY this morning on Mayne Island. We haven't had much to speak of in the way of falling wet stuff for about three months. Thought I would share one of my northern California paintings as I know this is another area that could use some rain. This is one of seven new paintings released this week at:
http://terrillwelchartist.com/2015/07/22/northern-california-contemporary-landscape-oil-paintings

Enjoy and all the best of Friday and the weekend to you!

Big fat fluffy clouds move swiftly across the early spring brilliant green of the Fremont Hills. The dark drama mirrored in the quarry lakes. A brief burst of rain did not reach the landscape until early evening.

I so agree George and your bragging rights made me laugh out loud with recognition. We may have passed each other on some of those roads where a camping spot means access to fresh moving water and enough open area to spot the bear before he is sniffing the back corner of your tent ;)

Today, as I gather a few things from my small gardens I think about what a treasure it is to wake and drift out into the world while still a little sleepy and grab the watering can. We have been dry for a while now so the produce is struggling some and yet, well.... there is enough for tasting and appreciation. A kohlrabi is ready along with a second picking of small tomatoes with a handful of green ones for frying. There are a few pea pods left and I dug another hill of beautiful new potatoes. The sage is lovely and the rosemary and onions powerful. A couple of calendula flowers will be used to liven up the tomato halves with sprigs of basil. Life is good, plentiful and filled with abundance. May your day be filled with your own simple pleasures of noticing.
