Study Of Blue - Thu June 30


Solo Exhibition of original impressionist oil paintings

June 30, 2011 to July 27, 2011

At the Oceanwood Resort
630 Dinner Bay Road

Opening Reception
Thursday, June 30, 2011 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Blue is more than a colour with impressionist painter Terrill Welch. Her fifteen original oil paintings featured in Study Of Blue are intuitive and attuned to the essence or resonance of her subject. These paintings provoke introspection as they interpret the sea, the sky and the trees of the Southern Gulf Islands.
