New Release of Large Landscape Painting

The last one for 2019! A new large contemporary landscape oil painting has been placed into our art gallery inventory and released…

Morning With Arbutus Trees by Terrill Welch, walnut oil on canvas 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches

Notes from the painter: “To stand quiet and alone with these arbutus trees during a late summer morning is to find the spirit of the place, resting next to my bones with the slow beat of my heart keeping time with their gentle rhythm.”

SOLD This Past Week

In October, this large 40 x 30 inch work left the gallery for a trial visit. However, the art collector had a challenging location and the painting didn’t work in that first desired location. But rather than giving up, she tested in another location… and then another location. The third time was charmed. We saw a sneak preview Last week and believe “When I am Among the Trees” will be most happy there, doing its job of taking the viewer for a walk through the trees into the spirit of the place. And so another large landscape painting leaves Mayne Island, and crosses the Strait of Georgia, for a more urban adventure.

Recently Sold Paintings by Contemporary Artist Terrill Welch

On this December 1st of 2019, we pause to reflect on the success of the Art of Terrill Welch Gallery during this past art season. The small seasonal gallery, with a year-round online presence, has had a good year. In fact, the best year so far! By the end of September this year, Terrill Welch had painted and released 23 new contemporary landscape paintings and 17 works had sold from her inventory of original works. Before a price increase takes effect next week, we thought we would share five of our favourite oil paintings that are now in the homes of art collectors and offer you the chance to browse the online gallery of current works still available.

Earth as to Sky, oil on canvas 30 x 40 Inches by Terrill Welch. Sold
Seaside Trail After The Rain, oil on canvas 20 x 16 inches by Terrill Welch. Sold

West Coast Moment, oil on canvas 16 x 20 Inches by Terrill Welch. Sold

So there you go! Our heartfelt thanks to the art collectors of these contemporary landscape paintings for their patronage and those that have taken on stewardship and care of the other 18 original Canadian landscape paintings by Terrill Welch that also sold before the end of September…. and the ones have sold since then as well! Terrill is in the gallery’s winter studio painting as fast as she can to bring you more inspiring renderings like these in the near future. But there are still other great pieces available in the online gallery for your viewing pleasure. Do send us an inquiry if you find something to your liking! We will be happy to make arrangements to see that the work finds its way to you. So feel free to wander over and have a look at https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/terrill-welch

Spring is budding on the Mayne Island trees. It is time for a studio update.

Fresh off the easel are two springtime paintings this past week and are yet to be released. They still need to dry and have final photographs taken. Still, here is an early viewing to put a bounce in your day.

Catching Tumbling Red Pears – a not-so-still still life painting

New Release – TUMBLING RED PEARS
20 x 16 inch oil on canvas by Terrill Welch

Tumbling Red Pears 20 x 16 inch oil on canvas  by Terrill Welch 2014_08_01 030
Detailed view and purchase information at: HERE

Did you know you were going to paint these red pears tumbling out of a canvas when you saw them in the grocery store?

The painter blinks, slightly confused and unable to answer as she comes out of her painting trance – her deep practice of noticing what she sees, a seeing that uses all of her sense, a seeing that is disrupted by her memory and is enhanced by her imagination. At this moment all she can remember, all she can “see” is tumbling red pears – the ones she imagined, the ones she painted on the canvas. This is her painting of reality.

If you are interested in the background and seeing the work-in-progress for this painting it is posted on Terrill’s Creative Potager at: HERE
