Several new paintings are released for Terrill Welch solo exhibition opening for the Canada Day weekend.

This show is inspired by Canada 150 celebrations and Terrill’s recent travels from the southwest coast of Canada to paint on Prince Edward Island for seven weeks last spring. The contrast between the light and colour of these two coasts is most evident in this work. The paintings promise a sensory connection to land, sea and sky from one Canadian coast to the other.

Terrill is getting the last details sorted this week for the Art! Vancouver Fair May 25-28 2017. ...
A quiet Monday feature painting from the studio this morning...

Recently returning to the studio from a gallery in Victoria, this work is coming to Art! Vancouver Fair with me. I think I will carry it for the "The Face of Art" runway show which should be a grand adventure, as long as I don't get my feet all tangled up in that arbutus I am sure we will be fine!

All the best of an island Monday to you! :)

Morning at Bennett Bay Beach Access
By Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 20 x 16 x 1.5 in
Medium: Oil On Canvas
At: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/morning-at-bennett-bay-beach-access

A low tide invites us down onto the sandy gravel over the breadth of Bennett Bay shore on Mayne Island in British Columbia. Turning back, morning sun caresses the length of the arbutus trees and slips through the branches along the beach access road. What is not to love about a day that starts with such natural magic?

Wishing all the best of a southwest Coast of Canada holiday season and a happy New Year! May your feet have a chance to walk the trails, your heart meet a gorgeous tree and your spirit sour with the eagles above the Salish Sea and beyond. This short video by Terrill Welch includes her clips from Mount Parke after a fresh snow and Mayne Island paintings and photographs by the artist. Enjoy!

New Release - "Felix Jack View of Active Pass Mayne Island BC" 22 x 28 inch oil on canvas at https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/felix-jack-view-of-active-pass-mayne-island-bc

There is a place on Mayne Island where you come around a corner and are gifted a few seconds of grand and splendid view. I am often surprised by its intensity and vast expanse of moving light on the islands and sea. No two sightings ever seem to be exactly the same but I have settled on one, just one, for now.

Note: the artist would like to thank Cheryl and Scott Funk for allowing her to gather reference painting sketch and photograph materials from their deck for this work.

New release "Rolling Spring Storms Rocky Point PEI"
by Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 20 x 40 x 1.5 in
Medium: walnut oil on canvas
At: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/rolling-spring-storms-rocky-point-pei

From the Charlottetown in Prince Edward Island, Rocky Point captures the imagination as this distant shore does battle with sea and sky. Our smallness is often felt before we expand with the weather and stride purposefully along the boardwalk. Bit of weather out there today, someone will likely comment. Collars of light jackets will be turned up and tightened at the neck but the smiles, they tell us one thing - spring! Spring rains. Spring greens slicing the red banks with their brilliance as they catch a break in the clouds. What is not to love in the simplicity of a moment like this?

On Edge At Cape Bear PEI
by Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 28 x 24 x 1.5 in
Medium: oil on canvas
At: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/on-edge-at-cape-bear-pei

Securing one's footing and leaning up to the edge of a Prince Edward Island red sandstone cliff that is tipped towards the sea is a good reminder of the eternity of change.

Cape Bear is on the eastern side of Prince Edward Island and this view is located where the Cape Bear lighthouse has been moved away from the edge of the eroding shore. It was spring when I was there with moody muggy weather enhancing a natural melancholy that comes with such a simplistic view.

Catching Waves at Georgina Point Mayne Island BC

Size (h w d): 30 x 40 x 1.5 in
Medium: oil on canvas
At: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/catching-waves-at-georgina-point-mayne-island-bc

There is a brisk northwesterly wind stirring up the Salish Sea in the bright autumn sun. I step carefully down the sandstone trail to the shore below the lighthouse at Georgina Point. Looking out across the Strait of Georgia, it seems that the best thing to do is to catch a few waves. Mayne Island, British Columbia, Canada.
