Sun, rain, snow, wind, frost, thunderstorms and summer-time warmth, along with the opening of lobster season and the arrival of the season’s first cruise ship, have all been part of painting sketches the east coast during the past five weeks on the Prince Edward Island in Canada. Fourteen painting sketches have been completed so far. Ten of these works have been selected to share today, along with a link to a radio interview with CBC Mainstreet PEI host Karen Mair which aired earlier this week.
These quick sketches are part of reference research for larger oil paintings and are not for sale at this time. However, prints can be made available and a link to purchase these will be provided upon request. Now, from Charlottetown to far-flung beaches on Prince Edward Island between April 27th and May 2nd 2016 …

Over the next few months, large oil paintings will be created back in Terrill’s Mayne Island west coast studio using these sketches and photography references and inspiration. Then, sometime in the late fall or the spring of 2017, an exhibition of “West to East Coast Canadian Landscape paintings” will be available for showing. Museums, galleries and other venues are welcome to contact the artist directly to inquire about hosting this future exhibition. Art collectors will still be able to purchase work as it becomes available, though a request may be made to include the sold work in one or two of these upcoming exhibitions.
