Landscape Paintings Sell During Unprecedented Times

Against formidable odds in extraordinary times, Terrill Welch’s contemporary landscape paintings continue to be acquired by art collectors. In fact, out of the last nine paintings she has released since February 14, 2020, five have sold. One large seascape, that she painted near the beginning of her Province’s “stay at home” orders, was sold while still wet on the easel and before the last brushstroke had been applied. An International corporate inquiry resulted in a request for a commission. The sale of another work continued on into a special request for a second painting. And so it has gone, until between then and now a total of ten original oil paintings of various sizes have left the gallery for adventures of their own. We will highlight the last five newest work that have sold because it will be the only time they will be introduced to you. As you will see, these paintings have been rendered with that special all-in, full sensory expression that Terrill’s paintings are known to convey. Viewers frequently comment on what they can hear, feel and smell as well as what they see when standing before her work. It is no wonder they have been chosen to share the homes of admirers during these past few months!

So, here on this small rural Mayne Island, off the southwest coast of Canada, you can still witness Terrill Welch standing before her easel moving paint from palette to canvas as she strengthens her studio practice, doubles her physical gallery space, enhances her online presence even further and brings on three more artists to show along side her in the new Arbutus Room that is dedicated specifically to west coast landscape paintings.

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

View and inquire at https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/terrill-welch/artwork/morning-with-arbutus-trees

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.
