Bowl of Winter Fruit – still life painting by Terrill Welch

Without a doubt, it is the Canadian west coast landscape that is the primary muse of artist Terrill Welch. However this does not preclude the occasional still life painting. Most frequently these are rendered during the ripening of summer. But deep in the heart of winter there is also a spark that can whisk her brush across a canvas.

There is a roundness of shapes in the warm winter light that is drifting through the kitchen while paint remains paint.

Bowl of Winter Fruit

The warmth from the kitchen remains,

long after the light fades,

long after the fruit has been eaten,

long after winter has passed.

Farm In Fog – pastoral landscape painting

Loosely referencing a Mayne Island farm, this painting of west coast fog  stirs our imagination. There is a sense that if we look away the fog will have enveloped the whole scene leaving us with only grey shadows of shapes. The distant ferry whistle might sound as it enters Active Pass and we will peer into the place that was visible only seconds before, waiting.
