OIL ON COPPER COWS OF SCOTLAND SHEILA WEDEGIS ART

"Midsummer Day"

Oil on Copper 
13" x 17" 

I so hope this shows up as bright as it is.  The day was hot for Scotland and we went to a friends Croft house. Outside the stone dyke stood this family staring back at me.  The babies were so nonchalant but Mum had her eyes right on me.  As I started to paint this I knew I wanted the copper to play an important role to show the heat. I went from adding definite fields and grasses to toning it all down. I was in a place of true simplicity. The croft house, the loch in front with the hills across rolling upward and the cows. A perfect moment.

I will be framing this in a soft gold plein air frame. And of course, shipping included. 

$1,215.00



Please feel free to contact me to find out about installment plans

OIL ON COPPER "QUEEN ANNE'S LACE" SHEILA WEDEGIS ART


 Oil on Copper 6" x 9" Framed

We just returned this past Tuesday, at 3:30 am, from our trip to Scotland. Loads to share with you as soon as I get rid of the jet lag but I did manage to do this first painting of our trip. 

The fields were full and I just loved every minute. They call this Hog's weed I believe but to me it's Queen Anne's Lace. My summer's at Cape Cod came back as I viewed this field! 

I am framing this in a soft silver frame to enhance the painting. It's just soft and lovely.

$540.00 Framed. Shipping included.



                     More stories and art on copper from Scotland coming soon!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Warmly, Sheila

OIL ON COPPER PORTRAITS SHEILA WEDEGIS ART



Each painting is 3.75" x 3.75" and is oil on copper.  The first painting is finished and is a gift for friends in Scotland. They live on an estate in the Highlands and have breeders of long coat Retrievers for years. This year one of their beauties went to the Bridge.

I felt leaving so much copper exposed gave it a feeling of regal-ness .

The second painting is also a gift and is still in progress.  Not too much more to go..I love the "in your face" image.

I am taking orders now for holiday gifts. 125.00. Shipping included.  They are lovely gifts. Rounded edges. So special.
