This painting had not been listed yet but the collectors had seen it in a social media post and fell in love with the work. So they made an inquiry to see if it could be purchased. Now it will be on its way to a new home in the State of Michigan.

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 🙂
