ROCKS AT SUNRISE original oil painting by Terrill Welch

The light catches the morning next to the rocks in a grand profusion of impressionist captured colour. Each brush stroke is singing a song of praise for the beginning of another day.

ROCKS AT SUNRISE  is an 8 x 8 inch oil on gessobord with a 2 inch birch cradle.

(Update April 22, 2013: this painting is no longer available for purchase ) 

There are no process images for this painting as it happened in a continuous flow. This post follows up from yesterday’s post “Painting the Desperation of Wanting to Stay Alive” where a small detail of this painting was shared.

SPROUT: Can you share with us a link to your latest work that came forth in one continuous flow?

    Here’s a link to the hot-off-the-press Feb/Mar edition of SIBYL Magazine. The article I wrote, “Inner Alchemy – Transforming Fear to Courage” (page 18) flowed in one fell swoop as I was sitting at Barnes and Noble enjoying a cuppa tea:

  3. I like this very much and one continuous flow
    I don’t very often have anything that is one continuous flow…though sometimes I think about something all week and the end results are the culmination of that thinking and not any of the thoughts that went into it.

    Nice work

    Yep I saw you got an award on Laurie’s site….lucky you 🙂

    • I don’t get this continuous flow thing very often either Patricia. Like you many drafts of both writing, paintings and even photographs go around in my head being edited and re-edited before concrete creation. Thank you and thank you for the reminder to drop by and see what Laurie has posted. I hope to do my part on this by Monday or so.
