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.

A TALL TALE OF AUTUMN STUART RIVER – 16 x 12 inch oil on canvas

A Tall Tale of Autumn Stuart River 16 x 12 inch oil on canvas by Terrill Welch 2013_12_24 003

These are my childhood trees – popular trees growing on the riverbank. They are my first subject of paintings. I cannot pick up a brush to render them without being transported back through time with its many stops before these trees. These are trees I met before there was even a field in front of them. These are trees I introduced my first lover and later others. Then much later my now husband. These are trees I walked beside while I carried my babies and then with them while they carried theirs. These are the trees that my mother and father have walked with me since they were younger than I am today. Painting the spaces of light and shadow in between is filled with the residue of many visits. It is a tall tale that gets taller with each telling. All I intended to do was to use up the paint leftover on the palette.
