Pear Trees in Winter First Light – small oil painting

A painting expressing the connections between the various elements and finding the space surrounding and holding the visual tension between land, sea and sky. The pear trees seem to reach around in the morning light reminding us that nothing is separate and all is dependent on seen and unseen influences.

Pear Trees in winter first light 10 x 8 inch oil o canvas by Terrill Welch 2013_01_25 064

This 10 x 8 inch oil on canvas is now in a private collection.

This painting is included with two others in my blog post  “Doing a Henri Matisse in three new paintings” at:

Of the three, it is by far the one most akin to my usual painting style where paintbrush and palette knife work interchangeably to meet my needs.
