My hand grips the pliers to loosen the lid on a tube of French Ultramarine and I squeeze it liberally into a mound on the upper left hand side of my palette. It has been a productive month and there has been a lot of squeezing of various pigments suspended in walnut oil. Each of these paintings has a story and the landscapes are all significant and intimately familiar to me. The results are satisfying and I am ready to share them with you.
Our Mayne Island fall tour is again happening this year. It is a weather-dependent event for day visitors from Vancouver Island and Vancouver but still a great day of island meandering if you are game for an adventure.
The Agriculture Hall and our Community Centre both will be bursting with artist and makers as well as many open studios and small galleries to browse. I will have the gallery pod open an extra hour early for the studio tour days starting 10-4 on Friday November 10th and finishing Sunday November 12th. I will have a few studio tour maps available and my regular studio signs will be up so you can find your way. Also, the paintings in the gallery pod will be available for viewing online as usual. Come on by and say “hello” and, with a bit of luck, on the Saturday and Sunday I will also be able to invite you into the house to see the studio area and additional work on show in our home.
The Terrill Welch Gallery Pod is generally open daily from 11-4 at 428 Luff Rd. for walk-in self browsing on Mayne Island in British Columbia, Canada. All current paintings showing can always be viewed in our private viewing room at: https://www.artworkarchive.com/rooms/terrill-welch/59ce84
