Blue is more than a color with impressionist painter Terrill Welch. Her original oil paintings are intuitive and attuned to the essence or resonance of her subject. The STUDY OF BLUE paintings provoke introspection as they interpret the sea, the sky and the trees of the west coast of Canada.
Sometimes referred to as Mayne Island’s Monet, British Columbia artist, Terrill Welch interprets the beauty and mystery of nature using her distinctive palette and quick sure strokes. Though locally appreciated, Terrill Welch is internationally recognized and her paintings are sold to buyers as far away as New York City and Switzerland. Terrill Welch is named as one of 21 Artists to watch for 2011 by Skinny Artist in its world-wide review.
The STUDY OF BLUE is more than an art exhibition. It is an art experience.
Oceanwood Resort guests can view and purchase the paintings while enjoying the hospitality of one of the southern Gulf Islands finest resorts.
The STUDY OF BLUE exhibition will also be shown online where paintings will be available for purchase at the same time as at the physical location.

About the Artist
British Columbia artist and photographer Terrill Welch’s distinctive palette, quick sure painting strokes, and photographic images capture forest, sandstone, sea and sky. They remind us that there is only one moment – this one. Where does her powerful yet gentle creative expression come from?
Born in the village of Vanderhoof in north-central British Columbia, Terrill’s art training came at an early age and continued more in the European style of mentoring and tutoring. At seven years old, Terrill unexpectedly was enrolled in correspondence for home schooling. Her mother decided drastic changes were needed after Terrill’s first year of public school. Her mother had driving twenty miles each way while meeting logging trucks on unplowed winter roads, to get Terrill to school in Horsefly, a small village in rural central B.C.. This, combined with Terrill’s chronic tonsillitis, made the decision easy. She would be home schooled for grade two.
“Fortunately, large rolls of paper, cans of dried paints, crayons, construction paper, pencils and paint brushes were purchased in bulk supply,” Terrill recalls. “Art supplies were considered necessities along with mail-order library books from the Vancouver public library.”
