Progress on a new painting as part of yesterday’s Open Studio online and in-person event. As you can see, I didn’t get very far with all the guests that arrived in the afternoon. Still, it is a beginning. The online portion of the event is open 24/7 until midnight this evening Pacific Time.

 

If you could bring anyone, dead or alive,  to my Open Studio online and in-person event today, who would you bring?

Artist Terrill Welch Open Studio event November 8th and 9th 2014 Poster

Psst! For the curious, as shown in the poster, Terrill Welch and her art were mentioned in the British Columbia Provincial newspaper, The Province, in a feature article by reporter Paul Luke on Sunday, October 19, 2014. Though the photographs are all at the top in the online version, you can read the full article at http://www.theprovince.com/business/Need+career+change+Here+reinvent+yourself/10304341/story.html

I think this is about all for now.

 

Question: What would be your quotable quote if a reporter was to call YOU this afternoon?

ART waits for no ferry nor west coast daylight, online Studio is OPEN

Have no fear your online Studio Open Event is here!

Saturday (November 9, 2013) Painting Shipping Special: There are just over 50 original paintings in the Artsy Home online gallery and for today only I will ship any painting purchased of any size to anywhere in the world for $25.00. Some of these paintings are as small as 6 x 6 inches such as

MORNING IN THE KITCHEN (one of my few recent abstract paintings)

morning in the kitchen - 6 x 6 inch oil on gessoboard by Terrill Welch 2013_08_23 069

and some as large as 36 x 60 inches such as

EVENING AND THE ARBUTUS TREE

Evening and the Arbutus Tree 36 x 60 inch oil on canvas by Terrill Welch 2013_04_16 092

No matter, one shipping price for each painting purchased. Just use the “make an offer” button to the right of the painting you are interested in to send me a direct message with the request “OpenStudio.” Besides, using that “make an offer button” will be good practices for tomorrow.

Sunday November 10, 2013 is MAKE ME AN OFFER day on any of my original paintings still available in the Artsy Home online gallery. So just like yesterday click on the “make an offer” button to the right of the painting you are interested in and tell me your offer. All reasonable offers will be considered – however, I do on occasion counter offer… just letting you know so you are not surprised 😉

NOTE: all in-person sales on original paintings will take priority if I there is a conflict. If you happen to make a purchase for a painting that is already sold, your money will be refunded immediately. To avoid this, please send me a note through the “make an offer button” at the right of the painting to let me know you are making a purchase and then I can mark the painting as SOLD in the physical gallery.

For today and tomorrow All five of my Redbubble photography and painting calendars are available for $34.00 U.S. each which is a nice savings of about $10.00 off the regular price. Here is the newest addition to feast your eyes on as we get stared.

In addition, I have set up a Special Open Studio Event Feature portfolio in my Redbubble storefont with 24 selected photography images and this year’s calendar for your easy access and viewing pleasure.

Do enjoy, do have fun, do share and I look forward to seeing you.

May your weekend be filled with beauty, resilience and peace.

Open Studio event and other Monday morning blessings

Have I told you about the Open Studio event this coming November 9th and 10th from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm? Yes?

Well, I shall stop working for a moment and please allow me tell you one more time – it will be both and online (right here on Creative Potager) and physical event with a fancy title – ANYTHING BUT NEUTRAL.  More information is available on my website HERE.

Open Studio Event Update – I encourage your online participation rather than trying to make this a day trip from either Vancouver or Victoria. As of November 4, 2013 B.C. Ferries advises that The Queen of Nanaimo ferry from Vancouver to the Southern Gulf Islands is not running due to damage in high winds. There is no other vessel at this time to take its place while it is being repaired. Passengers are being rerouted through to Victoria.

I was out for a walk yesterday afternoon and a nice couple said they loved the ad in the local paper and hoped that I had lots of parking available because I was going to need it! Sounds good doesn’t it?

Let’s us see if I can perform a little magic and get you a map for the Mayne Island artisan studio tour.

2013 Mayne Island Artisan Christmas Studio Tour Map

You see there on the top left – I am number ONE as in “1 ” or first on the tour which must be good luck wouldn’t you say? Oh, you noticed that the brochure says the Open Studio goes until 4:00 pm – well what is an hour or two when a person is on island time? As long as you don’t expect to stay for supper it is all good.

How does this come into my Monday morning blessing? Well, it started with a conversation with a friend on facebook when we were talking about the success of my art work over the past couple of years that got started because of finding money in my email for a painting that had sold. My part of the conversation went something like this –  there is a much deeper exchange than that of purchasing goods when one of my paintings finds a new home. It is hard to explain but, as you likely know, my work is expensive. A decision to purchase, I am sure, is never made lightly. Yet, once that decision is made there is a kind of graciousness that happens as money and painting or photograph or even a calendar or card changes hands. Hum… how to say it – like a deep mutual bow of appreciation, punctuated by these sometimes surprise email payments. I feel so fortunate as an artist to have been given the opportunity to not only create and do what I love but also to be appreciated for my hard work. It is far-to-rare of a blessing in life I think.

I take a bow and thank all you readers for your ongoing support in so many ways. Thank you!

Now for the “other” part of my Monday morning blessings. How about this?

mustache time sepia  by Terrill Welch 2013_11_01 014

I was away most of last week helping out with the two “O” boys. This is the eldest being very still so he can get mom to put his mustache on for Halloween. When his dad asked him what he wanted to be for Halloween this young fellow said “a cookie.” Dad said okay then – one chocolate chip cookie costume coming right up.

It is a funny thing sometimes about working and being online. There is this together and separate thing that happens in a different way than going to the office. Well, maybe not so much different but it shows up differently. Anyway, I decided that it is finally time to set up a facebook Art Page. You will see its badge to the left in the sidebar. Please go and have a look and even give it a “like” if you want. I still haven’t figured out how to easily get to my “liked” pages so if you have a trick I would love to hear about it. Mostly I search them by name when i want to go visit. There is something real special going to happen on Art of Terrill Welch – art reviews of both my paintings and photographs by a team of reviewers. That is all I am going to say right now other than to let you know that the first review will be posted this Wednesday. See, here we go – another blessing. Several writers and fans of my work have come forward to start this new adventure with me. Now isn’t that just amazing!? Pssst! Some of them you will know, I am almost sure of it. More later 😉

What is in YOUR mix for Monday morning blessings?

P.S. Two new paintings have been released on the website at Terrill Welch Artist.  I would tell you about them but that would spoil the surprise. Okay, Hint – there are two quick links in related articles below.
