I am still paintings as we are rounding the last corner into the home stretch for the Terrill Welch Gallery to open Friday August 4th. This is my new normal as I learn the rhythm of both/and between studio and gallery.
Yesterday, saw the eight painting sketches arrive at the gallery for the first show.
The lights are now up and I am thrilled with the quality of luminescence I will have to work with for photographs.
Last Thursday, Friday and Sunday were painting days. The first is a plein air over two mornings of an arbutus tree caught between the sea and the road.
Morning along the Island Road Mayne Island BC 20 x 16 inch oil on canvas plein air
Details and purchase information HERE.
The second is a small study of a favourite arbutus tree from reference images.
Arbutus Tree with a View 8 x 10 inch acrylic study on gessobord
This one is sold already. Other new works are released in the online gallery HERE.
On Friday morning with a bit of luck we will have a live video of the opening of the gallery on the Art of Terrill Welch Facebook Page. If you want to be there in our virtual world head drop by the page at 10:00 am Friday August 4th. A few people who helped with the raising of the gallery and collectors will be there and the gallery will open to the public at 11:00 am.
How do you stay in the flow when adding something big to your life?
