Exposing The Mystery In An Ordinary Day

Recently Terrill Welch was asked what her art was about.

“I am a landscape painter, exposing the mystery in ordinary day” she replied, “want to see?”

With several large canvases prepped with grounds and underpaintings waiting for her in the winter studio and material being reworked for a new online teaching of oil painting classes starting early in the new year, a few moments were taken up with creating a short glimpse into Terrill’s work… so we can “see” what this Canadian landscape artist is doing. She will be thrilled if you take a second or two and watch the short video, leave a comment and share with others who might be interested. Enjoy!

The Terrill Welch Gallery is now closed until early April, except by appoint to visit the winter studio or her home studio. However, work is always available 24/7 in her online gallery. This has been a good year finding homes for paintings. So far, almost as many works left on adventures of their own as were released. However,  “available” works showing in the online gallery are current. So feel free to browse away HERE.

Also, beyond the showing of work in the Terrill Welch Gallery, there are two new solo exhibitions scheduled  for 2018 in public gallery spaces. If you are traveling in these areas of British Columbia or you are close by and want to make a special trip to see the work, specific details are below.

The first solo exhibition opening April 5th at The Station House Gallery in Williams Lake, British Columbia. The “Light of Place Exposed, Landscapes by Terrill Welch” show can be viewed in the main gallery until April 28th.

The second solo exhibition “Between Islands on the Salish Sea” will be at the Galiano Public Library on Galiano Island, British Columbia from September 10 to October 26, 2018.

Stay current about  new oil painting classes being offered and new shows of Terrill Welch’s work by signing up to follow our website via email in the sidebar (top right if you are on your computer or laptop)!

Happy New Year with the best 7 paintings of 2016

In 2016, there are 24 oil paintings and 32 acrylic painting sketches for a total of 56 completed works by the Canadian artist Terrill Welch. Many of these oil paintings are larger canvases and cover specific geographical areas of both the west and east coast of Canada. Most of the painting sketches were completed during a spring seven-week art trip to Prince Edward Island and remain unavailable in the artist’s private studio collection. In total, 30 paintings or painting sketches were released in 2016 and overall 15 works from the available pieces left Terrill’s studio into private collection.

The selection for the best paintings of 2016 is limited to an arbitrary number of seven works because choosing 16 for 2016 out of a total of 56 works just didn’t seem to create enough of a meaningful selection process. So here it goes, in no particular, order, the artist’s choice of the seven best paintings 2016.

Happy New Year with the best 15 paintings of 2015

It is here? Already? How sudden it seems to have come to close this fine painting year of 2015. In the studio or roaming the seaside, hillsides and trails, the artist’s brushes have done their thing, creating just over 50 original works including 28 oil paintings and 23 acrylic painting sketches. Some of these have been en plein air and others have been rendered from reference materials and memory. Regardless of their humble beginnings, each holds a short moment of a life lived. At first, only 10 works were going to be selected for the year-end roundup. But alas, the selection resisted such refinement. So here it goes, in no particular order, the artist’s selection of the best 15 paintings and painting sketches of 2015. Happy New Year! Enjoy!

In this 2015 year, a total of 25 original works has left the studio into private collections. Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to highlight all of the paintings here that are loved and were purchased this year by a long and growing list of international collectors. What we DO have is a sampling of some of the best work of the 2015. In making selections, there is an attempt to represent major themes and interests of the artist as well as style trends in her work. Therefore, if you do not see your treasured painting in this list, it is not because it is not worthy of recognition. It is! And it is yours to enjoy everyday. Instead, see if you can find a painting that is similar in theme and style to the one you have on your “Terrill Welch original” art collection. It was a good year for painting and 15 is just too small a number to capture all the best works!

These paintings and painting sketches are not linked to a specific online gallery because there will be further changes in the months ahead about where work will be available. For now, the best option is to browse the online galleries listed below or contact the artist directly about a painting or painting sketch you are interested in purchasing.

Note from artist Terrill Welch:

This year would not have been possible without each of you! Your support, shout outs, cheering and collecting of paintings that inspire and connect with your own wishes and daily life are all part of the success these pieces have experienced. Thank you!  May you experience the richness of kindness, courage, love, curiosity and appreciation in abundance! All the best of 2016!

More  about these contemporary impressionist style paintings and other original paintings by Terrill Welch that are still available for purchase can be viewed  in the artist’s online HERE.

A Quick note from the artist: Thank you to collectors and fans for your ongoing support of my work. This success is as much about you as it is about the work. Your continued patronage, sharing, words of appreciation and encouragement are deeply appreciated! Terrill 🙂
