Three Large Oil Paintings of Trees Released

The winter studio time at the Terrill Welch Gallery has yielded three new large oil paintings of trees so far. Each of the featured trees on the big canvases are in their own special landscape and light. Let’s have a look shall we?

Morning Coon Bay, Galiano Island, B.C. – 48 x 36 inch oil on canvas

At this northern tip of a boat access park, on the long narrow Galiano Island, there is mystery in the morning light catching sandstone and trees.

Arbutus Tree Reaching – 36 x 48 inch oil on canvas

Late afternoon sun catches the curves of a grand old arbutus tree reaching out into Campbell Bay on Mayne Island in British Columbia. I want not to move or even shift my gaze for a very long time.

Winter with the Old Fir on the Ridge – 48 x 24 inch oil on canvas

The snow on the north side of ridge slowed my climb with several stops to catch my breath. But it was worth it! I had the Mt. Parke ridge with its fresh whiteness all to myself. Just me and this big old fir tree were there when the sun broke through the rushing clouds and warmed our backs. This could be many places in British Columbia in the winter and certainly took me on a memory meander around the province as I painted.

This last painting is so long and narrow for online viewing, let’s add a couple of detail images.

And this one as well…

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.
