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
