Mayne Island Arbutus Trees and High Seas Paintings

Recent weeks have been productive, resulting in three new and two revisited works.

Northeasterly Morning Strait of Georgia Mayne Island BC – 20 x 40 inch oil on canvas. The cool winter light of early morning splashes with the waves in the high winds along the Strait of Georgia. Chilled to shivering, I stand transfixed. What if this were my last breath? Ah, but it would be a good one! View from Oyster Bay on Mayne Island in British Columbia, Canada.

High Winds Strait of Georgia Mayne Island BC – 8 x 10 inch acrylic painting sketch. Some days there is a wild dance between the sea and the wind along the Strait of Georgia. A quick acrylic painting sketch simply to enjoy the interaction.

Update: February 25, 2016: This painting is now sold.

Late Afternoon Georgina Point Mayne Island BC – 8 x 10 inch acrylic sketch. I come back repeatedly to find the perfect day with the most perfect light. Is this it? A quick sketch to explore the quality of an early winter evening by the sea.

Late September Sun on Vulture Ridge Mayne Island BC – 11 x 14 inch plein air acrylic sketch. Plein air painting up on Henderson Hill at Vulture Ridge is a worthy climb on September 28, 2014. Unfortunate a small correction did not happen to this work until late December 2016, resulting it a lengthy delay in the painting sketch’s release. However, the freshness of that day has no expiry date.

Arbutus on Mt. Parke – 12 x 16 inch 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.

Scent of Hyacinths new still life painting and other studio news

There is a moment when the scent of hyacinths registers. My eyes close and there is a reel of past moments cascading through my memory until I pull up the correct identification – Hyacinths, spring! Now this moment will be added to those.

In other Studio news, the final preparations for “West Coast Landscape as Home” a solo exhibition of Terrill Welch paintings opening April 4, 2015 are close to complete. Very shortly, a special post exclusively for this show will be available. For now though, the art catalogue is in the mail to existing collectors, postcard announcements have been handed out and posters are up.

Also, a few acrylic painting sketches have found new homes. These works are usually not for sale but if one is to inquire sometimes they are allowed to leave the studio.

One of the recent works to slip out the door is “Arbutus tree  in ray of sun” 8 x 10 inch acrylic painting sketch on gessoboard (SOLD)
