Google Art Project9,546,213Thursday 12 September at 11am ET, join Norman Rockwell Museum curators Stephanie Plunkett and Joyce K. Schiller for a discussion of the influences Norman Rockwell absorbed to become one of America’s most beloved illustrators. They will look beyond the narratives of Norman Rockwell’s art to explore the deeper foundations of his paintings. A creative force in 20th century American visual culture, Rockwell was an engaged observer of the world of art, and often called upon classic and contemporary masters for artistic direction and inspiration. This conversation reveals the depth of Rockwell’s interest in the art of other creators, and their impact on his imagery for the covers and pages of mass-circulation magazines. Ask your questions to the curators on this page or by using  #Arttalks !Art Talk with the Norman Rockwell Museum: Norman Rockwell’s Influences and Borrowings2013-09-12 17:00:00365

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

Brian Buckley41,904Sharing My Feb 22 Engagers Showcase CircleHere is my latest circle of engaging plussers. This is the only circle that I share publicly and it's made up of the awesome people who I follow and interact with regularly. This is a curated circle and you don't get in just by doing the plus, comment, share  thing on this post. I regularly get comments about the great new relationships that people make by adding this circle, so I'm happy to share a smaller circle of great peeps.The Engagers Showcase part means that I would love for you to share a link to one of your own recent posts in the comment stream here. That is a unique feature of this type of circle and it's a lot of fun. It also gives everyone a chance to learn a little bit about why I like to have you in my circles, and if they would like to add you to your circles. You'll need to use a public post or Google plus won't give you a link to it.Happy Saturday! #engagerscircle       #engagersshowcase     #circleshare  2014-02-22 16:56:5420018656111

Brian Buckley29,594Sharing My November 17 Engagers Showcase CircleHappy Sunday everyone. It's time for me to share my Engagers Showcase Circle. We have a lot of fun with this circle. There are always some new members as different people engage. If you received a notification you are in this circle. You may wonder  *What is the Showcase Part All About?*I encourage every member of this circle to share a favorite recent post of their own by adding a link to that post in the comment stream. I think it adds some cross-pollination and allows each member of this group to feature a little bit of themselves. I love going through and going to each link, and so do a lot of other plussers. It's a chance to connect with some really great, engaging folks.How did these people get into this circle? If you are in thios circles you have re-shared or commented on my public posts. As it is all about engagement for me I really appreciate your contributions.This is a great group to add to your circles. Check out their posts too, and of course if you would like to re-share this circle, that is optional but appreciated.#circleshare   #sharedcircle   #engagerscircle  2013-11-17 18:26:1924119142105

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [Mar 21, 2013]Record participation again last week!!  +1s, comments, and shares!  WOW!!Quick start instructions:➀  post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂  publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃  add this circle, and replace it every week.You will get a comment from us and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens in the comments and re-shares.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!We respond with up to 3 ☑ next to your name: 1 for linking your photo, 1 for sharing the circle, and 1 for a +1 on this post.  The circle will always have the people who interacted the most over the last 3 weeks.This will be done every Thursday.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Biggest Ripple last week: +Ree Saunders with 6!  The runner up was +Paul Paradis with 5.  Nice work to those that helped them!  The average share-chain (ripple) for the whole group was 2.47...  lower than last week, but we had many more shares, so still an improvement! Top Influencers last week: +Ludovic Moreeuw, +Michael Sonntag, +Ree Saunders, and +Paul Paradis.  Special thanks to you all too!See http://goo.gl/ldooJ for full details! #publiccirclesproject #ph2013-03-21 16:56:39422329104139

Or, I had a senior moment and missed them.  I thought I had avoided that this time but I still managed to miss +Magnus Ericson should should be around 454. I noticed some interesting things when compiling this circle.  There are a lot of people that moved into the top 500 that abandoned G+ for some reason or their interaction has become one post a month.  I have also noticed that many of the photographers in this group have a lower follower count than they had 6 weeks to 8 weeks ago.  I'm not sure what conclusion can be drawn from this but I find it very curious.To view the lists please see the following links.001 to 080: http://goo.gl/mmr7w  4'431'409 - 55771081 to 160: http://goo.gl/mXuup  55368 - 37454161 to 240: http://goo.gl/rLmy1  37343 - 30457241 to 320: http://goo.gl/o06Hy  30131 -25785321 to 390: http://goo.gl/747Lf  25760 -23013390 to 450: http://goo.gl/xDc2D  23006 - 21347450 to 510: http://goo.gl/sEnac  21321 - 194402013-02-23 23:33:145001353799

Margaret Tompkins43,985>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 50,000 FollowersThis is a very special circle.  I’ve not shared it before but I have shared the people in it.  I call it the Graduates Circle.  These are the fine people that I shared with you when they had < 25,000 followers but now they have more – they’ve graduated!  These are the people who are top photographers, very interactive, and are the heart and soul of G+.  I ask each of them to identify those people who inspire them, form a circle and share it.The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have between 25,000 and 50,000 followers.  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle. I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles   2013-02-16 21:06:161261232987

Jeff Sullivan1,152,722Most-Followed 500 Photographers CircleWhile a circle like this has the obvious drawback of missing some excellent photographers newer to the site, Charles often follows up his Top 500 Most Followed Photographer circle with circles going all the way down to photographers with less than 5000 contacts.  Here are four circles Charles has created to help us discover and recognize photographers at all levels within the G+ community:Under 5000 -    Under 7500 -    Under 15,000 - 500 Most Followed Photographers - (here)I like to interact with people who are active in photography... share at least a photo or two of their own original work per week, so I'll slowly whittle the circle down to a stream of excellent photography (I've started, but may not finish for a few weeks).---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+Charles Lupica  Charles Lupica Dec 25, 2012 (edited)  -  Public►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄         Top 500 most followed photographers list                   circle of 500             and Group 6: 421 to 500►►►►►►►═════════════════════◄◄◄◄◄◄◄If you're not in this circle and you think you should be, I'm sorry.  I have missed a few people by pure accident.  My methods are entirely manual and I do miss people.  I have checked every profile and I have included only those people that share their own work, and share it on G+.

Ardith Goodwin39,738New to Google+ Starter Circle for Art PeepsTo all of you who are in our community but are new to Google+ I wanted to share a 'small' circle of folks you can follow that tend to have a love of arts, share art related content, and welcome new followers/conversations within their streams. This group is to help you get your stream active, explore what it means to follow 'strangers', and begin interacting with others, if you so choose, here on Google+. If you are brand new, let me caution you to not approach Google+ like FB because you will be confused and frustrated. I like to think of Google+ as a great blend of Twitter, Stumble Upon, Blogger, and Youtube. The nature of this network is that you follow people who post content that you are interested in reading. Just because you follow someone DOES NOT MEAN that they will follow you back and that is perfectly ok. And, just because you follow them it doesn't mean they will see what YOU post. They will only see what YOU post if they follow you back. I have included several folks from this community within this circle, as well as who is a Google community supervisor here, and a great gal! I encourage you to add more folks as you see them share and get to know them here. At any time, you can also remove someone from this circle or add to it, as you see fit. If you are lost or need some guidance for Google+, don't hesitate to ask for help, many of us LOVE to help newbies. 2013-01-04 01:43:0253724

Vince Ong10,656Vince's 2012 Top 200 Kindliness Photographers.It's all back to why we circled a particular people in the first place? Yes it's all because of that artistic and impressive work. Well on top of that, a photographer needs to interact and talk.Why these people are in the circle?They are here because they interact and communicate. At least at their own post, they reciprocate and say Thank You to those that had left a comment.Because of their kindliness, I had certified them and you are safe to circle all the 200 great people here. You can start to comment on their work!Happy New Year!2012-12-29 13:30:3320115160124

Thank you everyone who contributed to +SacredSunday™! We appreciate your participation very much!The curators for +SacredSunday™ (that's +Chatchai Rombix, +Robyn Morrison, +Justin Hill, +Steve Barge and yours truly) encourage you to share with us and the G+ community what you hold sacred; people activity, temples, churches, historical information, poems, songs, texts or support.  SacredSunday is like a big travel around the physical and spiritual world. We promote no religion over any other and invite you to share with us what you hold sacred.On behalf of the whole team we would like to thank everyone! Hopefully the circle includes everyone that posted to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. We apologize if that is you.Google+ has changed over the last year and so has changed SacredSunday. The introduction of communities is now a great opportunity to enjoy a hazzle- and troll-free SacredSunday. If you want to share a photo that shows more than the depicted subject, if you want to share a poem, or a thought that means something to you, then consider joining the SacredSunday community. One last word: this was my last time as an active SacredSunday curator. I had a great time with you and my wonderful co-curators, but after a year I want to back off a bit and enjoy a non-working Sunday again.The future's bright, so let's fill that community and the SacredSunday spirit with life!

Help. What do you think?

I am working on revising my Artist Statement. It needs to answer these questions -  In three to five paragraphs of three to five sentences each, provide basic information like WHAT DO YOU DO? WHY DO YOU MAKE YOUR ART? WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO MAKE IT? WHAT DOES IT SIGNIFIES OR REPRESENTS? WHAT'S UNIQUE OR SPECIAL ABOUT HOW YOU MAKE IT? and briefly, WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU? (250 words or less)

Here is my draft. Does it work? What would make it better?

I am a full-time painter and photographer living on Mayne Island off the southwest coast of Canada. I paint and photograph my lived-experience of our natural environment.

I want to strip away any human illusion of our separation between land, sea and sky.

From yesterday afternoon...

“West Coast Living” has the wild half-tethered feeling one gets when standing out on a point next to the sea. Life, on the southwest coast of Canada during the fall and winter seasons, is like this – often isolated, frequently vibrant and occasionally terrifying as the storms pass through. Nature stirs deep emotions yet holds no opinion. To identify with the tenacity of a wind-swept tree is easy.

This is one of my favourite times of year.  It is the beginning of my quiet time. All marketing events and promotions are now done until early spring. I feel a little like I am on holidays. It means longer than usual walks, extended days painting, tea with friends and lots of time for visiting online and in-person.

Paint brushes down. Hands up. Letting it rest...

Trail Along the Ridge resting 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas

There is a place called Mount Parke on Mayne Island that has a trail that meanders steeply up to above the cliffs behind our house and runs along the ridge. Sometimes if there is low fog it is possible to climb up on the ridge into the sun. It is like some special magic has happened. I want to laugh and clap my hands and do a little gig along the trail.

I may make some small corrections but none you will likely notice so this is it for now.

From the warm of the studio, rain leaves the house insisting on the lighting of lamps mid-afternoon. May you have a most pleasant weekend, even if it requires rubber boots or possibly a snow shovel in colder climates.

I am a full-time painter and photographer living on Mayne Island off the southwest coast of Canada. I paint and photograph my lived-experience of our natural environment.

I want to strip away any human illusion of our separation between land, sea and sky.

My paintings translate my moments of engagement with the everyday world. Primarily these works reflect the landscapes that surround me but also a few still life renderings because food is so much apart of my daily experience.

Growing up in rural British Columbia, Canada, I have always been deeply connected to nature. Trees speak to me as if on a shared breath. I long for the rhythm of the sea. The sky is like music to me. My work has always been driven to express these connections.

My brushstrokes are meant to render the light, shadow, movement, smells, sounds and emotions I am experiencing as I paint. My rural background and my present location within our natural landscape, drive me to I seek this express. The resulting paintings and photographs are my full-body of sensory experience expressed.

In my paintings and photographs, I am having an ongoing conversation between myself and the viewer. The work is an invitation to join me in the exploration of the relationship between the innate elements of our environment and ourselves. My intention and my desire are for the viewer to find themselves within the landscapes or kitchen counter as I have - filled with curiosity, wonder and discovery.___

This month's commentary is by Sam Juliano about EVENING THUNDERCLOUDS OVER THE STRAIT OF GEORGIA. Enjoy and all the best of today to you!

EVENING THUNDERCLOUDS OVER THE STRAIT OF GEORGIA
Commentary by Sam Juliano
 
Terrill Welch’s sublime impressionistic oil painting EVENING THUNDERCLOUDS OVER THE STRAIT OF GEORGIA has a fierce sensory undercurrent – a raging and visceral convergence of elemental properties that would even impress the regal flounder from the Grimm Brother’s The Fisherman and His Wife whose own ire required the proper theatrical trappings to denote that all is not well in the heavens.  But by her own admission the artist confessed the enormous challenge of documenting an experience that is both cosmic and suffused with a swirling sense of movement.  Staged at Georgina Point at the Straight of Georgia which separates Vancouver Island from the coast of British Columbia, the creator is armed only with an easel, a brush and a tube of oil paint – bare essentials with which to create an infinite event, one where lights have dimmed and an unwanted guest has intruded without proof of identity, to cast a pall of mystery and foreboding during the short interval between day and night.  With bold application of impressionist strokes, the painter has forged a scene of turbulent force – visceral and seemingly controlled by spiritual entities.  For those who like expansive outdoor atmospherics, defined by brooding weather and furious movement, Terrill Welch’s EVENING THUNDERCLOUDS OVER THE STRAIT OF GEORGIA is for you. It is imbued with a spiritual context – one that implies that all is not well beyond those pearly gates.  Audacious and original, this meteorological tapestry is unquestionably a masterpiece by a singular artist.
 
EVENING THUNDERCLOUDS OVER THE STRAIT OF GEORGIA is a 20 x 20 inch oil on canvas painting. More about this painting including link to detailed viewing and purchase information is available at: http://terrillwelchartist.com/2013/01/23/evening-thunderclouds-over-the-strait-of-georgia-dramatic-seascape-sky-painting/

The days of light, seasons, colour, form and space collide within my ordered and defined sensory system. Not chaos. No not that. Only adjustments and a release from specifics. Blackberries and golden plums are my favourites. The transparent apples just happen to ripen at the same time adding a nice shape and colour for balancing a still life plate.

Nice way to start the day...

Sold! Flight At Dawn - 9 x 12 inch oil on canvas is off to a lovely home in British Columbia. Here is the story of this painting...

It was a sunrise early in February on the Mayne Island shores looking over the Strait of Georgia. I was standing on the shore as the light came up and danced across the water and through the mist that was leaving just a hint of the coastal mountains showing in the background. A seagull took flight and the day had begun leaving behind this minimalist canvas.

Enjoy your day!___Nice way to start the day...

Sometimes my creative mind can get me in so much trouble ;) My My apologies again for the confusion with my creative offer during the Open Studio event. I hope this new opportunity will make it up to you.

Sometimes Terrill Welch’s enthusiastic creativity is so incomprehensible that it creates a new opportunity. This is one of those times.

There is a new opportunity of 20% savings on original paintings in her Artsy Home online gallery until Friday November 14th midnight Pacific Time. Just click on the “Make an Offer” button located on the top right under the price for the painting you want. Then put  in the code 20%savings and of course, anything else you would like to say. Then send it off. This will place an email in Terrill’s personal email inbox. She will adjust the price and assist you with delivery and purchase arrangements.

During the Nov 8th & 9th online and in-person Open Studio event Terrill learned that her numbers game was so creative and unclear that no one understood what she was talking about. Since this was not her intention. This time she is keeping it straightforward.

Our sincere apologies for any confusion experienced as part of the Open Studio event offer.

From this afternoon's walk....

"Reef Bay with a little roll on that rock"

Cool and clear with arctic air whipping up a nice wind across the Strait of Georgia. Mount Baker in the background and no cobwebs left between my ears. Mayne Island in perfect winter form.

For those that might be interested, prints available by searching Terrill Welch Redbubble and then go to "recent."

The Nakasendo is an old road in Japan that connects Kyoto to Tokyo. It was once a major foot highway, but today small sections retain some of its historical feel. In October I walked along 5 short sections of it, staying at traditional inns along the way. My guide was +Craig Mod who is fluent in Japanese, his ease with the language made the trip possible. And he is a great travel companion (he took the picture of me in the onsen). The Nakasendo is full of history and many artists and poets over the centuries have travelled along it, including Basho, the haiku genius. We met a lot of characters, too, and thoroughly enjoyed the exquisite details that make up this country.

It still needs a final photograph which, from the looks of it out there, won't happen today but "Trail Along the Ridge" 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas is completed, finished, done!

I will have it out this weekend for the Open Studio but it won't be listed yet in the online gallery. I just thought you might like to have a look anyway.

With more than 50 original paintings finding their way into private collections in less than five years, I had reason this morning to visit a post from the spring of 2013 where collectors, fans and fellow artists did their best to answer the question WHY? As I start on the high-polish for this weekend's Open Studio online and in-person event, it seems a good reminder. What is your answer to the question WHY? Has anything changed since the comments in this post?

Dampening the heated heart ....

I pulled on a deep purple tunic with an equally deep blue-red, one-button sweater over top today. It is self defense or maybe even defiance against the heavy grey of our woolly west coast rain and short days. But it all wasn't particularly dashing as I slapped my navy raincoat down over those heated-heart hues and let the long bits of the tunic swish below. But I refused the rubber boots! Nope! No rubber boots for me today.

What craziness do you get into after days of late fall rain?

"From the White Room in Aix-en-Provence" print will be traveling across the sea.

On a heavy, damp, wool-sweater Mayne Island kind of day, a large canvas print has sold to a mystery buyer believed to be in England.

Thank you to whoever you are. I am sure this cheerful, high-acrylic painting sketch canvas print will brighten any room you choose for the work. I would love to know where it will hang. If you choose to share.

And I just noticed that Redbubble has a sitewide sale with 15% off using the code RBHOLIDAY15 - just so you know.
 
How fun is that for a Monday morning?

Here is the link to the print and from there you can either click on "portfolio" or "TerrillWelch" on the top left of the print to continue browsing my work.

New release... The Olive Tree - 40 x 30 inch oil on canvas

This work is created using reference painting sketches, photographs and my memory from traveling this spring to a farm outside of Florence Italy. The painting of the olive tree seems to collapse history and time onto a contemporary the canvas.

Pretty excited! Three Art Collector Appreciation Packages have been pulled together for next weekend's Nov 8th and 9th Open Studio double online and in-person event.

Here is a sneak preview of the Mayne Island Virtual Travel package. Psst! Don't tell anyone yet though. It is Halloween and we need to leave today for those creepy creatures.

Plus, there will be a number game 5% to 25 % for savings on original oil paintings during the Open Studio Event. I will outline the details in Tuesday's Creative Potager post.

Oh No!  Here comes a ghost! Must run.

I have stood in this spot. It was May 2002. We were independent travellers for a month in Peru. Just the two of us with backpacks small enough to be carry-on luggage. I was 43 and my husband (now but not yet then) was 56. It was our first international trip together and the first for me ever. We did not speak Spanish and only had a little Italian and French to augment our English. We had an amazing trip going from hostel to hostel (like small inns or B&Bs).

PROMISE

The fog has been hesitant to raise her skirts
much above her knees on the island ridges.
We can’t really blame her.

After all, we have been gawking without shame,
seeking even the tiniest glimpse of blue sky and
sunlight between her cottony ruffles.

Today though,
within the deep winter quiet,
we are given brief moments of reprieve
from her dowdy grey garments.
It was not a dazzling display
but enough to leave us momentarily content,
hopeful even.

PROMISE is a 12 x 16 inch oil on canvas painted in January but seems to be a perfect fit for today.

Detailed viewing and purchase information is available at: http://www.artsyhome.com/product/Promise

The mist slips past the open door as I step out to grind the morning coffee beans. I wish I had pulled on my socks as I tiptoe across the dimly lit covered deck. Today, I must sit and do paper work. It won't take long I tell myself. But it always feel long. So before I get started, having talked with small ones and close ones, I decided to visit the Louvre in Paris, France. This is a study of costumes Souliotes by Eugene Delacroix completed in 1824-1825. The image of his painting "Two Greek Warriors Dancing" is my own and is shared for study purposes.

In wikiart Delacroix is described as the leader of the French Romantic school of painting, and a prolific artist.

The mist slips past the open door as I step out to grind the morning coffee beans. I wish I had pulled on my socks as I tiptoe across the dimly lit covered deck. Today, I must sit and do paper work.

This is a study of costumes Souliotes by Eugene Delacroix completed in 1824-1825. The image of his painting "Two Greek Warriors Dancing" is my own and is shared for study purposes.

In wikiart Delacroix is described as the leader of the French Romantic school of painting, and a prolific artist. He produced over 9,000 works during his lifetime, ranging from paintings, to watercolors, pastels and drawings. His work both shaped the Impressionist artists and inspired the Symbolist movement. Taking inspiration from Peter Paul Rubens and the Venetian Renaissance painters, his painting style emphasized colors and movement rather than the carefully modeled form and clear outline.

The Souliotes were a warlike community from the area of Souli, in Greece, who became famous across Greece for their resistance against the local Ottoman Pashalik of Yanina ruled by the Muslim Albanian Ali Pasha. After their defeat in 1803, the Souliotes were forced to move to the rest of Greece, and many of them played a prominent role in the Greek War of Independence starting in 1821. When I look at the date of this study, I wonder if maybe it was a tribute to these warriors. But I have not yet found a reference to confirm such a conclusion.

As you may guess, it is Delacroix's emphasis on movement that captured my attention. I love the upward drive in this painting. And that space left awkwardly empty in the middle of the canvas for the dancer on the right to move into. In my viewer's eye, I so want the dancer where he is not yet that I almost wish him into place. At the time, these studies were considered just that - studies. They were not contemplated as finished work but used to work out painting problems and ideas. A practice that many artists, myself included still use today. Now however, we look at them and see links to modern-day art in those loose brushstrokes and partially completed canvases.

Possibly, with the ease of photography we have come to love these strengths of movement in a painting even more today? What do you think? Could this be so?

It is a fine Friday and I have diverged from my task list without compromise of apology. It will wait. Today, I want to share what will likely become a small series in "Artist Terrill Welch's Art Collection."  The first in this series of sharing is a triptych Life My Sister by +Lena Levin .

These are, without a doubt, a painter's art collection painting choice. In my request to purchase these three paintings I commented "...I believe the three should stay together as a complete painting thought - a thought that has influenced my own work in considering more strongly the influence of form in expressing an idea, a feeling or sensation in paint.

But these paintings are... more »

It is a fine Friday and I have diverged from my task list without compromise of apology. It will wait. Today, I want to share what will likely become a small series in "Artist Terrill Welch's Art Collection."  The first in this series of sharing is a triptych Life My Sister by +Lena Levin .

These are, without a doubt, a painter's art collection painting choice. In my request to purchase these three paintings I commented "...I believe the three should stay together as a complete painting thought - a thought that has influenced my own work in considering more strongly the influence of form in expressing an idea, a feeling or sensation in paint. I believe the personal discoveries you made through these works are powerful and meaningful to painting in a broad universal sense. And the paintings are beautiful just for themselves."

But these paintings are more than this as is succinctly articulated in Lena's essay letter to me about the work --- "The triptych as a whole also stands, for me, for the oneness of time; maybe even eternity itself, manifesting itself in each and every here and now, be it in 1640, or in 1915, or in 2013; an opportunity to enter a conversation that transcends time."  The title of the triptych, which is named after the poem by Boris Pasternak, is reflected in this conclusion.

Eventually this triptych - Life My Sister - will leave my home studio for I have no real or adequate room to keep it. For now though, for today, I have secured a space for this powerful and inspiring work. I have placed various pieces around it that I believe show the shared intersection of my own work, my own learning and the that of my dear colleague and friend Lena Levin.  This is, in part, demonstrated in the earlier small still life painting of Dancing Pears on the bottom right by Lena that was the first of her work in my personal collection.

There is more I want to say such as the breaking of the picture plane forward as apposed to receding into the background. There is the process of what I call colour-splitting that allows objects to continuously appear and disappear, only to reappear again that are evident in much of Lena Levin's recent work. But these are still half-finished thoughts and observations. These aspects I will leave for another day. 

May our life and work be illuminated by our shared journeys.

Sigh! Apparently, I must have tripped a G+ Spam wire this morning with my invitation to you about my upcoming Open studio event. So frustrating. While I wait for the post to be reviewed in the next couple of days, you are welcome to visit my website where I have the information posted. Dare I put a link?  I guess not. But most of you know where to find me. Or, if you ask, I will let you know in the comments.

Still without power after last evening's windstorm. Arbutus tree went down and made a bit of a mess of the lines on Wood Dale. But we are good and all cozy. Using cellular data briefly here to up date you. Other than that shall be off line, reading and organizing for Nov. 8 and 9 Open Studio Event. Going to be fun! :)

Paint brushes down. Hands up. Letting it rest...

Trail Along the Ridge resting 30 x 24 inch oil on canvas

There is a place called Mount Parke on Mayne Island that has a trail that meanders steeply up to above the cliffs behind our house and runs along the ridge. Sometimes if there is low fog it is possible to climb up on the ridge into the sun. It is like some special magic has happened. I want to laugh and clap my hands and do a little gig along the trail.

I may make some small corrections but none you will likely notice so this is it for now.

Not sure if this painting is going to survive yet but here is the work-in-progress on the easel at the moment. I figure I am about half to completion. But we shall see how it goes. I will keep you posted.

My art and me mentioned in the Provincial News in a good way today...
http://www.theprovince.com/business/Need+career+change+Here+reinvent+yourself/10304341/story.html

The online article has the photographs to view separate at the top of the article and it is different than the one used in the hard copy. However, in this case - any news IS good news! It is a long researched article by reporter Paul Luke so grab a coffee and enjoy!

This morning's rain encourages the tugging of freshly laundered sheets up under my chin. The ferry won't wait. Gulf Islands Haiku.
