Trey Ratcliff8,887,550This is a fun topic - why you can stop worrying about gear so much and focus more on the post-processing.  Joining me are my friends +Thomas Hawk +Karen Hutton and +Gino Barasa... and maybe a few more!   I'm back in New Zealand from San Francisco and ready for the next hangout show!  We also have live chat now (!!) during the show... this has been one of the biggest requests.  You can see it embedded alongside the live video player on http://www.StuckInCustoms.com . I'll be back in the SF area soon for Google I/O.  Maybe I'll also plan a fun public photo event while there... +Thomas Hawk and I will talk about it during the show... all ideas are welcome! :)Live Photography Hangout: "Post Processing Instead of Gear!" with Thomas Hawk, Karen Hutton, and Gino!

Sandstone Cave Galiano Island, British Columbia Canada

There is this wonderful sense of being able to feel the movement of water from inside the cave looking back onto the sea.

For your Sunday viewing pleasure - the latest not-quite-so-large painting "On Edge At Cape Bear PEI" 28 x 24 inch oil on canvas at: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/on-edge-at-cape-bear-pei

Securing one's footing and leaning up to the edge of a Prince Edward Island red sandstone cliff that is tipped towards the sea is a good reminder of the eternity of change.

Cape Bear is on the eastern side of Prince Edward Island and this view is located where the Cape Bear lighthouse has been moved away from the edge of the eroding shore. It was spring when I was there with moody muggy weather enhancing a natural melancholy that comes with such a simplistic view.

Today's work is a quick 8 x 10 inch acrylic plein air sketch of Active Pass from Felix Jack, Mayne Island B.C.. The sketch is part of my research and preparation for a large painting of this grand view. The light is often dramatic and changes quickly from here. I could do a hundred paintings of this scene and each would be different. How am I ever going to decide which one or ones to paint!?

Today's work resting on the easel all shiny and wet....

On Edge at Cape Bear PEI 28 x 24 inch oil on canvas

My intention was to have the viewer uncomfortable present to the eternity of change. Seems a fitting subject for fall while painting our past spring on Prince Edward Island.

Today's work hasn't progressed very far but I got a start on it anyway. The canvas is 28 x 22 inches. The subject is a rocky ledge out at Cape Bear on PEI. I am likely going to need to work on the piece in short stretches until Friday as I am teaching an oil painting class tomorrow afternoon. Will keep you posted.

I am pleased to present the latest in my East Coast Landscape paintings....

Charlottetown PEI Harbour 24 x 30 inch oil on wood
available at: https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/charlottetown-pei-harbour

There is a memory of cold, stiff fingers working a brush over a surface in the early spring morning air as I stand at the edge of the Charlottetown harbour. There is a sense of knowing exactly what is before me. Then, everything dissolves into fragments and reforms - though only slightly differently, the view is of an unknown time that is somehow more familiar than the present. Space and history merge. What is left is a quick glance up Great George Street to the St. Dunstan's Basilica from Confederation Landing in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada.

These eight landscape paintings have had their last lecture from the artist before getting dressed in rain gear and loaded into the Outback, Red Rosie, for delivery and hanging at the Emily Carr Branch of the Greater Victoria Library in Uptown Victoria B.C..

They have promised me they won't be difficult or wiggle when we climb the ladder to get above the stacks. They nodded in agreement about hanging straight. They have each been assigned a specific wall and are prepared to go to that exact location immediately upon arrival. Time will be of the essences. We will have no more than 60 minutes to get them from car to wall before the library opens. Now, it is up to the ferry god mother to get us across the inside passage on schedule on the early boat. And the alarm clock. For Jiminy Cricket! - Don't sleep through the alarm!!!

Wish us luck!

Sunday morning's work-in-progress on a 24 x 30 inch cradled wood panel is of Charlottetown in PEI.

I am working in walnut oils to get all the soft muted tones this piece needs. My intention is to keep the lively sketch feel to the work from beginning to completion. This will likely be an illusion as I suspect the work may have to be completed in layers rather than wet-on-wet to be successful. But it is my birthday today and it seems like working on this painting is about the best way to spend the day ;)

Today's painting sketch - Study of Peaches 11 x 14 inch acrylic still life is discussed and available on my Creative Potager blog at https://creativepotager.com/2016/08/26/three-large-plump-peaches-in-the-studio-today/

There are just three large plump peaches, fresh from the fields, sitting in a bowl on the table. I paint the still life sketch promptly because there is a great risk of there only being two.

Morning on the Stuart River BC

It is about 7:00 am on the morning I am leaving my parent's farm. I am in my garden clogs and nightgown with a sweatshirt pulled on over top for warmth. These moments are common but brief. Heavy dew drenches my legs as I walked through the tall grass on top of the riverbank. Careful not to slide on the sandy-clay near the water's edge, I hop onto the old wharf. As much as anything else, these moments are my favourite memories of my childhood home. Some ask why I paint so much water and trees. It isn't a mystery really, if one knows the answer.

All the best of Thursday to you!

We got in late last evening due to a 1:40 minute ferry delay but all is good. Today, there are large paintings with dry edges to move and unpacking to get done. Settling in is what I call it.

Last evening's serendipitous connection with fellow Canadian landscape artist, photographer Ron Smid.

The summer evening is warm as we are sitting on a bench near the water at Georgina Point Lighthouse. Then there is the sound of firm footsteps and the jostling of a heavy backpack behind us. I looked up just in time to see photographer Ron Smid striding down the bank and onto the rocks. Over the next several minutes, Ron sets up his traditional wood large format analog camera. I asked permission to take this short video as he works. Only after it was all over did we take a moment to make introductions. Ron's landscape photographs are authentic, powerful and it is as if his work speaks a language I know intimately. He has a deep love and passion for the Canadian landscape and it is as if his images breath on their own.

When Ron called this morning to thank me for last evening's video footage, he was already on his way to Victoria B.C.. We had a long chat about the strength of our Canadian landscape and how it connects body and spirit in ways that are still to being discovered. It was a good conversation with a fellow being on a similar mission. You will want to check out Ron's website which is provided with the video.___

Beautiful morning! The light changed about four days ago and the harsh glare of midsummer is behind us. We are at the beginning of the warm glow of fall. I love that! As you can see paintings edges are drying and we will manage with temporary eating area for the next few days. I am not really joking when I say we have a studio home rather than a home studio ;)

Gossip overheard in the artist's studio this afternoon...

Standing on end and shouldering themselves into a rough order along the curved hallway, these landscape paintings whisper loudly to each other.

"What are we doing here? I don't even have my edges painted yet!"

"Me either but I hear that is happening tomorrow. Apparently, we have a big gig coming up for September and October."

"Yeah, I heard eight of us large ones will be showing in Victoria, BC " says Seaside Mayne Island, as he heaves himself to a slightly better angle to be heard, without actually shouting, from the great room.

Then Evening And The Arbutus Tree leans over the railing from the loft.

Then Evening And The Arbutus Tree leans over the railing from the loft.

"She told me that she wants to call the show 'Above The Stacks' because we are going to be in a new library and most of us will be way up high above the books. I said she had to add 'Land and Sea' to the title or no one will know that it is going to be us."

Long Beach Vancouver Island sighs as the tide recedes farther up her midriff.

"You know" she comments patiently while stretching out one long sandy leg, and then the other "it is way too soon to be getting excited. There are still a couple of weeks to wait. No use wearing out all our shine in the studio."

Then she winks and the light sparkles off of her sea "I do believe Emily Carr is somehow involved again."

All the paintings in the studio start whispering at once. In fact one little fellow gets so excited that he falls over flat on his face in the magazine article he had been trying to read upside down.

Sea and Sun Cox Bay Tofino BC grumbles "You had to go and wake the little ones didn't you!? You know they are too small to go in this show."

"There will be other shows" Long Beach Vancouver Island replies.

 "After all, there are not many place that can handle the eight of us."

The late summer afternoon warmth starts to make all the paintings drowsy - large ones, middle-sized ones and small ones. Sssshhhh!

The studio is quiet.___

The land and the sea are both part of the same whole, neither is constant, neither is willingly to give in to the other. Both are changed with each moment. Yet, for brief passages of time, we can gaze at the grand view and see what is possible. We may even be comfortable and turn away from our collective struggle between the separate parts of the same whole. We forget that the land can suddenly pushes up from forces far below the surface and displace the sea. We ignore that the sea can be tossed in vicious storms that tear at the cliffs and topple large chunks of red dirt and stone into the waters.

The land and the sea are both part of the same whole, neither is constant, neither is willingly to give in to the other. Both are changed with each moment. Yet, for brief passages of time, we can gaze at the grand view and see what is possible. We may even be comfortable and turn away from our collective struggle between the separate parts of the same whole. We forget that the land can suddenly pushes up from forces far below the surface and displace the sea. We ignore that the sea can be tossed in vicious storms that tear at the cliffs and topple large chunks of red dirt and stone into the waters. We tend to hang on, baffled by the interplay of our own contributions and those forces which we do not have any control. The concept of World Peace is possibly like this relationship between sea and land.

This painting is dedicated to David Sandum, a Swedish painter and print maker living in Norway. He is also the author of the award-winning memoir - I'll Run Till the Sun Goes Down. We have been colleagues and friends for more than half a dozen years, or at least as much as one can be when living an ocean apart. The context for this painting was a dialogue following the latest in a series of terrorist attacks, this time it was Nice, France. The anger, bewilderment and confusion was felt bone deep. When one is a painter, there often seems to be only one thing that can be done in a situation like this - paint. So, I made a commitment to do a painting while meditating about World Peace. My next work was a large seascape from my recent travel to Prince Edward Island. It seemed a fitting subject for this exercise.___

The scent of the Salish Sea drifts in the open windows on the fog. My sweet husband has made his breakfast and sprawls in a wicker chair on the side deck next to the last of the clean laundry on the line. A rooster crows on the farm below and a Flicker complains about something nearby. The sheep in the valley graze in overcast solitude. Life is good.

As I finish my coffee, plans for the day are still vague. But I do know what I will be doing on May 23-29 2017. I will be in New York City on an artist's art tour with the Vancouver Island School of Art. Now how cool is that? The trip only has 24 seats and sold out in just a couple of days. So I am feeling pretty darn lucky at the moment.

More about the tour and what we will see and do at: http://www.vancouverislandschoolart.com/nyctrip.html

A thousand times the mountains appeared and disappeared in the fog. I stand with them on the rolling, uneven rocks of the far shore. The great blue heron flew. The sea lion passed by close to the water's edge. Fishing boats came and went. Still we stood, these mountains and I, daring the fog until it gave way to our desires. I gazed at the full view, dull under the late morning filtered light. Disappointed. Now the magic is gone. But the painting sketch is finished, mountains appear and disappear a thousand times.

Friday's feature painting - Sunset On Brown Ridge 10" x 20" oil on wood at https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/sunset-on-brown-ridge

Just before night sitting in the summer stillness up on Brown Ridge. Even a quite sunset is thrilling. A grand view on Saturna Island, British Columbia Canada.

Today's feature painting....
Reef Bay Morning Experienced - 14 x 18 inch oil on canvas
Details and purchase information at:
https://www.artworkarchive.com/artwork/terrill-welch/reef-bay-morning-experienced

The sky is overcast with a stillness that leaves one focusing on their breath just to have some company. So it seems appropriate to share the following painting.

Artist's notes: I remember the sea, and the soft rush of water as it comes ashore. I remember the heaviness of the rocks and the salty dampness of winter seaweed. I feel the coolness of the air and the cry of the gulls. Alla prima or wet-on-wet seascape painting with the quiet strength that is part of any peaceful west coast day.

Early Evening Cotton Park Mayne Island BC

Fred and Bette Cotton Park is the newest addition to public park land on Mayne Island. The trail to the shore is a short meditative walk with westerly exposure to the opening of Active Pass into the Strait of Georgia, where the trees drape themselves out over the Salish Sea.

Today's work has resulted in bringing this large canvas to rest. It has taken its own sweet time but who can rush a meditation on World Peace!? More about the process later. For now the work must stand on its own....

I had such a hard time deciding which three paintings to include in this weekend's “La Vida Rústica” — multi-disciplinary reflections on the rustic life here on Mayne Island. But decide I did and a special website post featuring the three paintings for online purchase has been put up as well. Enjoy!

Finding a view Mayne Island, B.C. Canada

The island's newest public park provides a short meditative walk through the forest ending with a brief stroll along the shoreline next to Active Pass.

A HUGE thank you to the over 50 people who came to my pop up East-West Landscape art show on a busy Mayne Island weekend. We talked art and painting for 9 hours over two days. Such fun! Work went off to new homes. Future studio visits were discussed and life as a Canadian painter is just grand. Thank you again for all your support in so many ways that you may have thought it went unnoticed - it doesn't. For those that wished they could have, here you go...

Patchwork of larger canvases gathered for show this Sat 1 - 4 pm and Sun 11 am - 4 pm at the Mayne Island Community Centre, British Columbia, Canada. The wee painting sketches are already boxed and by the door, jittery as a kindergarten class getting ready go graduation ;)

Much to do still but it will all happen. Or not, and that will be okay too.

Today's feature painting sits beside me in the loft studio while I enjoy a soft much-needed rain outside...

MORNING WITH CEZANNE’S MOUNTAIN 18 x 24 inch oil on canvas
Standing on the painters’ ground in the morning light I think of Cezanne and his mountain. A painting sketch leads to this later studio work after returning from Aix en Provence, France.

There is a sister painting to this one from the evening. More about both works can be found on my website at:

In Studio placing last brushstroke on first large East Coast ‪#PEI ‪#‎Canada‬ painting. ‪#‎artistatwork‬ ‪#‎studio‬ ‪#‎lifepurpose‬

Now, time to move things around and go get five more large canvases out of the back of the car and that bag of replenishing paints. The two largest canvases are 40 x 60 inches which I think will be about right for a couple of the works I have in mind. One more Tofino painting on that list for a 24 x 48 inch canvas too. Time to get 'er!

Today's work or rather rework of a painting I thought had finished in January. This happens sometimes. I stop working on a painting because I can't decide what to do next and it is then "done for now." But, because something is bugging me, I put it where it is in my face day after day. I just leave it there irritating me until one of us gives. This time the paint gave and both painting and description were revised. Admittedly, the resolutions were influenced by a two month break painting on the east coast.

Westerly Winter Winds Victoria BC 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas

Rolling storms race across an almost black water with a just hint of back-lit colour in the sky and occasionally fast moving clouds break to scatter light on the sea and shore. Winter wind pushes the sea relentlessly against the stone shore. Walkers move swiftly, in hopes of brighter tomorrow. However, I... more »

However, I am caught at the surfs edge transfixed by the possibilities in these moving greys and long and short dashes of white. Is it today yet?___

Today's work is to the "resting" stage which means it is mostly complete but may go through one more round of minor changes before calling it done.

Wind Swept Murray Head PEI "resting" 30 x 40 inch oil on canvas
It is late spring and some of the trees have yet too become green. The day is heavily overcast with the occasional hint of blue sky. I hear my first mosquito and didn't stand out long in the muggy air overlooking the seascape with all its melancholy beauty.

I shall have another look at tomorrow or maybe even Sunday. Then we can decide what else it needs, if anything.

And so the journey continues...
No matter where we went, from North Cape to Cavendish to Summerside to St. Peters Bay, to East Point to Georgetown, to Murray Head to Rocky Point or just on the streets of Charlottetown, we were welcomed with exemplar Canadian kindness! Prince Edward Island has managed to cultivate the best of rural and urban living in its small province and it is a place that warms the heart and lifts the spirit. We will be back. We have made a promise to ourselves to have me come and work in the fall to early winter, maybe in 2017, to capture the landscape again in painting sketches and photographs during the autumn season. For now, I must go home and start working up the Prince Edward Island landscape onto larger canvases using the reference material I have gathered over the past seven weeks.

Today's work is admittedly more about this moment than the one used for reference. When we go on adventures and stretch ourselves beyond what is familiar, we never quiet fit into the self we were before taking these risks. So, when it becomes time to leave, there is this process of saying good-bye, not only to the place I am leaving but also to the parts of me that will be missing or changes from who I was before I arrived - if this makes any sense at all. Of course, this is all good and necessary but it is a process none the less.

I anticipate that this will be my last painting sketch while on Prince Edward Island though I still have some canvas paper left for Monday or Tuesday if I simply must paint.

Yesterday morning, plein air painting to complete a quick 8 x 10 inch acrylic sketch on Antique Row in Charlottetown PEI. The morning light was gorgeous and the street quiet for most of the hour I was working.

In the evening, I was asked to bring this and the other PEI sketches to a gathering of art enthusiasts for viewing. It is a bit unnerving to have them held up one by one, completely naked of context, and shared over glasses of wine, bruschetta and fudge in a crowded kitchen to intrigued and knowledgable viewers of both the landscapes and of paintings. Both the painting sketches and I survived the experience without embarrassment. Pheeeewwwf!
