Featured Original Oil Paintings by Terrill Welch

Just Before Sunset Mayne Island BC 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas

With the sun sliding quickly towards the western hills, this arbutus tree and I marvel at the bronze and golds of sandstone and reflections in the quiet sea. Dusk will come too soon today.

Catching Waves at Georgina Point Mayne Island BC 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas

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.

Southern Gulf Islands Afternoon – 48 x 36 inch oil on canvas

Low golden winter light hangs over the landscape, leaving the arbutus trees dancing freely beside the deep blues of the sea in Navy Channel. It is just one of those moments that are wanting to last forever. Mayne Island is one of the Southern Gulf Island beauties that releases its precious gifts to the viewer any time of the year.

West Coast Blues Rolling Waves Oyster Bay – 36 x 72 inch oil on canvas

The heavy ink blue of the dark sea rolls grand waves against the sandstone rocks as breaking clouds answer to the west coast blues. This is a large contemporary landscape painting which brings a view of the sea to any room that it is in. The scale of this painting is difficult to appreciate in this image – it is a full 3 feet high and six feet long.

Briefly about the Artist Terrill Welch

Mayne Island British Columbia artist Terrill Welch’s quick sure painting strokes, and photographic images capture forest, sandstone, sea and sky. They remind us that there is only one moment – this one. Born in the village of Vanderhoof in north-central British Columbia, Terrill’s art training came at an early age and continued more in the European style of mentoring and tutoring. Terrill Welch’s work, in water mixable oil paints and photographic canvas prints, showcases the beautiful, mysterious and rugged southwest coast of Canada. Though locally appreciated, Terrill Welch is internationally collected. Between January 2010 and July 2017, more than 100 paintings of various sizes found their way into private collections. Many of these paintings have sold while still work-in-progress or resting wet on the easel. In August 2017, the bricks and mortar Terrill Welch Gallery opened and Terrill no longer discloses the specific number of works sold. The best way to determine which paintings are still available is to check in Terrill’s online gallery. Her paintings and photographs are sold to art collectors throughout Canada and the United States as well as in Australia, England, Norway and Switzerland.

Terrill Welch painting in her studio by Allison Mullally _MG_5876

Terrill Welch you are of course the new Emily Carr!  Strangely her work was my least enjoyed of the Group of Seven. She didn’t capture the bush and water for me.  She painted colours and starkness but not the softness and beauty of the scene.  You do!  Whether it is the ocean waves, the rocks and mountains in the distance, the clouds especially or a special tree you give it a life -not just a coloured  dab of pigment as I have come to vision most paintings.  You give it the feeling of being there and being happy there in your work.  You told me once a bit of your background in a cabin with your Grandfather I believe-and there were horses too. You know and love the places you paint!  This comes across to me clearly. ~ Dennis Rogers

    • Thank you Diane and pleased to meet you! There is something I think extra special for a painter when they connect deeply with the work of another painter. I appreciate you take the time to share your experience of these paintings.
