Slowly getting some of the latest paintings shared. A maybe not-so #HappyFriday to you!

Oyster Bay Mayne Island BC with fresh snow
By Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 16 x 20 x 1.5 in
Medium: Oil On Canvas

Snow seldom reaches the shores of the Salish Sea and less often does it strike such beautiful contrasts between the land and sea. There is cause to stand for a long moment in its wonder, maybe even to celebrate its rarity this quiet scene at Oyster Bay on Mayne Island in British Columbia.

From yesterday's walk... Mount Baker with easterly winds.

Glorious power is moved on shore at Reef Bay, Mayne Island B.C. as the Arctic front travels through the Frazer Valley and across the Strait of Georgia. Though from the looks of these waves, they followed that valley down a little further south before coming across. Regardless, some impressive waves coming ashore for this relatively protected strait.

During the past week our southwest coast has been pummeled by an Arctic front and high winds. It has me thinking about a painting sketch from a couple of years ago.

Unremarkable Edith Point Esquisse

By Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 8 x 10 x 0 in
Medium: Acrylic on gessobord panel
Note: This work has long ago gone into a private collection as it was part of a draw during my solo show in the spring of 2015.

The unremarkable aspect is about this being an ordinary moment with a bit of sky, a few islands in the distance, the sea, a sandstone cliff and a tree. There is nothing really special about the view but I sit still for a very long time enjoying its unremarkable beauty.

These recent storms are not particularly unusual events and come about with seasonal frequency. The landscapes and people are shaped by a perseverance that is required in what is otherwise a mild climate with only a small range in temperature change year round. Often, other parts of Canada laugh and thumb their noses at Canada's southwest coast winters. But they are not the ones sitting in the dark and lighting a candle or holding a flashlight while the tall firs bend above their homes, giving and resisting in gusts come repeatedly from across the seas in various directions on this small island, snapping branches and trunks with unpredictable regularity. I have jumped and yelled more than once as a big branch has been slammed down on our tin roof. I have heard a more than one northern Canadian say they have never been so cold as in the damp of our northern rain forest. I have lived in both climates and each has there own challenges. Our bent and misshapen trees and weathered shores leave us with foreshadowing reminders of our southwest coast winters.

Finally done. Sometimes it takes me years to get back to making that last small edit. Proper photograph and release soon....

"Late September Sun on Vulture Ridge Mayne Island B.C." 11 x 14 inch plein air acrylic sketch on gessobord.

The warmth of an afternoon sun clung to the hillside with a slight breeze in the arbutus reminding me of sea below.

Revisited - Arbutus on Mt. Parke
By Terrill Welch
Size (h w d): 12 x 16 x 0.75 in
Medium: oil on canvas

Morning lifts heavy mist from the highest places while the sun dances cheek-to-cheek with the late October shadows. As these arbutus trees extend themselves in prayer, angels dissipate into the warmth gathering on top of the Mayne Island Mt. Parke ridge.

New release - 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?

A small 8 x 10 inch acrylic painting sketch completed today in my temporary studio. Just a warm up exercise after a few days without a brush in my hand. No title yet.

I have been enjoying the evening light on this specific landscape for a while now. Still considering if there is enough to it for a larger canvas.

Landscape is of Georgina Point Mayne Island B.C. at winter sunset.
