Featuring Mayne Island Landscape Paintings

We are starting to stir out of our winter cozy season by featuring Mayne Island Landscape paintings by Terrill Welch in our unique gallery pod in the woods at 428 Luff Rd, Mayne Island BC. No arrangements or appointments are necessary. We are boldly going forward with DAILY OPEN hours from 11-4 everyday starting today, January 22, 2023. Since our Terrill Welch Gallery Pod has the option of walk in self-browsing with a QR card for purchase links in our online gallery, we can do this! So we are! There is a phone number for additional assistance and Terrill will come say “hello” in person if she is available. Either way, stay as long as you like and enjoy the paintings.

Best 12 out of 32 New Terrill Welch Paintings in 2022

Each year I like to review which are my best paintings painted and released in that calendar year. Sometimes this selection is easy and other times it can be more challenging to decide. This is a more challenging review of 32 new paintings in 2022 with a wider range than usual of approaches. However, a decision has been made! I ended up choosing 10 paintings, including a diptych, and one bonus painting. (So there are 12 separate canvases in total)

View all paintings in detail from our online private viewing room at: https://www.artworkarchive.com/rooms/terrill-welch/a5a548

Please note that many of these paintings have already sold and are in private collections. However there are still a few excellent works to choose from and, with a bit of luck, more will be coming available in 2023.

Now I am off to consider my intention for 2023 and my new series “Thriving in Place”. More soon!

Happy New Year!

For The Love Of Trees and More

The Terrill Welch Gallery pod has a new show with additional works showing exclusively online for your browsing and purchasing pleasure between November 3 and November 28, 2022. “For the Love of Trees” includes a selection of Terrill Welch’s tree paintings and a guest tree painting by Glenda King. Visiting this unique gallery space, tucked into the woods at 428 Luff Road on Mayne Island, is becoming a travel destination for the gallery’s art collectors, fans and island visitors. All artworks in each current show can also be viewed with additional information and purchased online in our private viewing room HERE.

The gallery pod space is purposefully designed for self-browsing with assistance upon request and is open 11-4 Thursday through Monday and closed Tuesday and Wednesday unless arrangements are made in advance. (The container gallery space was built by West Coast Container Homes on Vancouver Island.)

Opening today “For The Love Of Trees” is our third show that we have curated in this new gallery space since the beginning of September. If a large gallery space were like a novel, then the gallery pod’s modest size is like poetry. There is a desire and a need to make each painting exactly the right choice in precisely the right position with no more and no less artworks than what is necessary to complete each show. Poetry, yes?

Keeping the walls for artwork only, a price list with descriptions and additional information is available on a chair for visitors to discover more about specific paintings that are of interest.

The painting on the left is by Glenda King and is titled “Look Way Up”.

In most shows there is a guest painting by a fellow island artist to accompany Terrill Welch’s artwork. These artists also show with her in a second location, ISLAND TIME ART, which is located near the ferry terminal on Mayne Island at 492 Dalton Drive.

The differences between the two show spaces are subtle and yet intentional. Paintings selected for the Terrill Welch Gallery Pod are usually landscape paintings and mostly larger artworks by Terrill Welch with a few smaller pieces included as space allows. ISLAND TIME ART has mostly smaller original paintings by various artists including Terrill Welch and reproductive prints and useable art products by only Terrill Welch that are suitable for gifts and collecting holiday memories. Many people visit both locations and some just one or the other depending on their needs and interests.

But let’s get back to “For The Love Of Trees” which is a long standing passion subject for contemporary landscape painter Terrill Welch.

The tree painting subjects in this show range from Fremont in California to the Stuart River in north central British Columbia with many located on Mayne Island on the southwest coast of Canada. There are willows, polars, firs and arbutus trees as well as a winter scene painted plein air in the snow at the Mayne Island Japanese Memorial Garden. Each tree or clump of trees is painted as if they were sitting for a portrait or telling us a story about their lives while we listen intently.

We wish you much enjoyment and discover about each of these paintings of trees that will be part of the Made on Mayne Tour from November 11-13, 2022. You do not need to wait though and as mentioned above, you can slip in to see this new show starting today or view “For The Love Of Trees” online HERE.

In addition, we would like to extend a thank you to Island Art Magazine for including “Winter with the Old Fir on the Ridge” that is in this current show on page 20 of the magazine’s November publication. We smiled when we saw it placed next to a a short article about the difference between Monet and Manet.

The complete online publication can be viewed HERE and if you love art, and Canadian art in particular, you will enjoy the read.

On a final note, we would like to congratulate our art collectors on the purchase of a commissioned 20 x 24 inch oil painting “Cotswolds Memories” by Terrill Welch.

SOLD – “Cotswolds Memories” by Terrill Welch

Artist notes: This painting is a rare collaboration starting with an art collector’s image. Much research, my own memories of painting in England and plain imagination went into this homage to a fascinating mackerel sky.

And with this, we shall conclude our gallery update for now. Please do contact us if you have any questions or special requests. We are always happy to assist if we can.

Mostly The Red Line Series

New show in the Terrill Welch Gallery Pod opening today October 6 and showing through to October 31, 2022. Self browsing available in person from 11-4, Thursday through Monday, at 428 Luff Rd., Mayne Island B.C. or online in our private viewing room HERE.

This show is primarily Terrill Welch’s Red Line Series which began in 2021 as a way for her to be personably accountable for noticing the impacts on our environment while holding the tension between the grandness and beauty during the destruction of our landscape.

Artist notes about the Red Line Series: Sea levels rise, damage from storm surges increase, wild fire smoke gives us deep orange moonrises, glaciers in the mountains melt endangering our freshwater supply and we are running out of suitable sand to make cement as we mine the landscape relentlessly for its resources. I could paint stunning landscapes for the next twenty years. But, in a way, they would be a lie, denying the pain and lump in my throat as I walk amongst the trees. Right now, painting only such paintings of bliss seem irresponsible, an unacceptable personal denial. So I went to work to find a more honest way to render my experiences.

Smaller paintings by Terrill Welch are also included outside of this series plus two guest paintings by Jennifer Peers.

Please call, text or use our inquiry option for assistance or to make purchasing arrangements. Thank you for visiting the Terrill Welch Gallery Pod and enjoying our self browsing experience.

Again, feel free to view online in our private viewing room HERE.

Seven Savvy Reasons to Purchase a Terrill Welch Painting Right Now

For every purchase, online or in person, of an original Terrill Welch painting during the opening days of Gallery Pod between September 1st and 6th there is a possible savings [NO LONGER AVAILABLE] on your purchase. The amount of your saving will be disclosed on your invoice and has been determined by chance. If you are already a collector of Terrill Welch Gallery paintings, then your art collector savings still applies in addition to our opening savings.

Seven Savvy (and slightly cheeky) Reasons For Purchasing During Our Opening Savings

One – Our home needs a (or another) Terrill Welch painting on that wall. (Of course it does!)

Two – I cancelled one of my trips for this summer. I can do this! (Sorry to hear about your trip but great idea!)

Three – With the current pace of sales for Terrill’s original paintings, the price is going to go up again soon. (Good guess!)

Four – Winter is coming and it will be nice to think about spring/summer/fall on Mayne Island. (Winter comes every year but we never like to argue with our art collectors.)

Five – Artists require our ongoing support to keep bringing us new work. (So very true this!)

Six – It is better than leaving the money in the bank because this way at least I can look at it. (Okay, we’ve heard this one many times but we will let you have it.)

Seven – Because we want to! We don’t even need a reason. (Best reason of all and happy choosing from the 125 painting choices!)

To view all available Terrill Welch Paintings online click HERE.

Tips for browsing: For ease of viewing when you open the portfolio, click on ”available” on the top right. The paintings are presented from largest to smallest. Please note that the following painting is “On Hold” already.

When visiting our physical new Terrill Welch Gallery Pod at 428 Luff Rd, Mayne Island BC, Canada please simply text or call 1 250 744 4560 or come ring the doorbell for assistance if Terrill isn’t already present.

We are open 11-4 everyday through to Tuesday September 6th for our soft opening days. Then we will be open 11-4 Thursday through Monday for the autumn shoulder season and at other times by arrangement. More about our current show is available HERE.

All the best with making your painting purchase decisions. Let us know if we can offer any assistance.

Additions to the Red Line Series and more

In an ambitious effort to get more of Terrill Welch’s work available to art collectors and fans during our special Gallery Pod opening offer, we have released two more paintings and two painting studies. Three of these works are in Terrill’s developing Red Line Series about the impacts of climate change on our much loved landscapes. Let’s start with the latest of these paintings first…

Artist notes: Emerald Lake is a compelling mountain location with a stunning lake below. This work started with a plein air study just as the ice was breaking up. The broken part of the red line is to leave a little bit of hope in our ability to change our behaviour in the face of the consequences from environmental impacts.

Red Line Emerald Lake in Yoho National Park by Terrill Welch, 20 x 30 inch, walnut oil on canvas.

For more details click HERE.

Next up is a small study following major atmospheric river flooding on the west coast of British Columbia last November.

Artist notes: I started from an intuitive place with no plan or sketch, just a haunting idea that comes following the recent flooding in British Columbia and the amount of debris that ended up on our Mayne Island shores. I have a very old night terror of being in a car that slides off the road over a steep bank into the Fraser River on the way to town where we lived and then starts to fill with murky water. My earliest memory of this nightmare are about the age of five and it repeated itself every few months with further embellishments right up until sometime in my mid thirties when in my dream state I somehow figured out how to get out of the sinking car and float to the surface. Then the nightmare never came back except as a waking memory now and again and when watching and reading about the flood mudslide victims.

Red Line 04, Flooding, Strait of Georgia by Terrill Welch, 9 x 12 inch walnut oil on unstretched canvas.

For more details click HERE.

Then there is this small study on paper in gouache…

Artist notes: The waves and sea move towards the shore with no visible evidence of their hidden challenges. I did this in gouache as a study on paper and it is unframed.

Red Line Study of Waves and Sea by Terrill Welch, 8.25 x 12 inches, gouache on 140 lb paper.

For more details click HERE.

There are two more Red Line paintings just about ready for release and we anticipate these to be out within the next few of weeks in anticipation of the second group of featured works in our new Gallery Pod.

For the final release this week, we have what is primarily a memory that is revisited every year or so when Terrill goes home to spend time with her parents living on a farm outside of Vanderhoof. This is a landscape of her childhood and the first that she drew and then started painting in oils when she was just fourteen years old.

Artist notes: The early morning mist filtering sunlight through the willows, poplars and cotton woods beside the Stuart River is a magical time of day and filled with years of memories.

Early Morning Mist by Terrill Welch, 16 x 20 inch, oil on canvas.

For more details and my artists notes click HERE.

We wish you all the best exploring these new releases while we are working on hanging the first show in our new Gallery Pod for you to view.

We will be opening our first show in this new space 11-4 on Thursday, September 1st at 428 Luff Rd, Mayne Island BC, Canada. More about the Gallery Pod and our opening is available in ”A Brush With Life” at:

Happy Earth Day 2022

A note from landscape painter, Terrill Welch, for Earth Day 2022 as we feature her painting: “Conducting An Orchestra”, oil on canvas, 40 x 36 inches. More information about this west coast oil painting is available at: https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/terrill-welch/artwork/conducting-an-orchestra-terrill-welch

In her own words…

“I am a landscape painter exposing life’s mystery in an ordinary day….”

“Stripping away the human illusion of our separation from nature is at the core of my work. I have a driving need to succeed in creating bridges with my art between humanity and nature, before it is too late. This illusion extends to a presumption of a separation between land, water and sky. I explore the inter-dependency of these natural elements….”

“These works reflect my surrounding landscapes. The brushstrokes render the light, shadow, movement, smells, sounds and emotions I am experiencing in our natural world. The resulting paintings are my complete sensory experience, expressed…”

“It is a tall order for a painter with a brush, making marks on a canvas. Yet, I must try…”

“ I must keep painting until we pause before the work and weep in our knowing – without our natural world, we will no longer exist. It is my sacred work as a landscape painter to ensure that this message reaches into the hearts of humanity. This is my mission – my in-progress life’s work. Happy Earth Day 2022!”
