Featured Original Oil Paintings by Terrill Welch

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.

Storm Watching – 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas

The continuous motion of the winds and the sea stir sea-spray high up onto the cliffs above. I want that. I want that feeling of stirring and motion. With as few brushstrokes as possible on this large canvas, I want us to be slightly queasy from it as we are swayed in the waters and crash against the rocks within our viewing of this painting.

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.

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 recognized. Since 2010, more than ninety of her paintings and many more of her photography prints have found their way into private art collections around the world. 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.
