"BO" OIL ON COPPER SHEILA WEDEGIS ART


"BO"
oil on copper
5" x 7" Framed

While we were in Scotland, this past July, I went to one of my favorite places. Puffin Croft Farm in John O Groats. They raise their animals and plant and grow their own vegggies and bake their yummy breads. All is for sale! (The cheesy bread is to die for!!)

This is Bo. I was standing at the fence patting the new baby donkey and suddenly a head appeared between the fence rails. Curious Bo!!

I left allot of copper on this one showing. In the light it just shines. Much like the day I was there.

$250.00

UPDATE ON PAINTING IN PROGRESS SHEILA WEDEGIS ART


 In Progress  Oil on Copper
10" x 10"

This past weekend I traveled to Mississippi for my grandson's 13th birthday party. The only flight I could get was to Cincinnati, then to New Orleans. In our take off from Orlando, we flew out over the Gulf to turn North. I had the feeling I was flying right over Gulfport and thought about jumping out. (ok Not really) 

Finally when I reached NO, my daughter in law picked me up and we drove another hour to Gulfport, Ms.  Thankfully the return trip was through Atlanta. 

So today was my first day back to work at the studio. I needed to pack and ship packages that were supposed to leave last week.  It really is awful when you are planning a trip and things get behind because you're excited. sigh.

So, the painting. Great horse, but I thought, being a Labrador retriever artist it needed something else in it. A LAB!!  I started to put him in from memory and it was wipe, paint, wipe, redraw, but now I feel close.  Not sure if his legs will be out in back or one out, one back. Any suggestions?? 

Anyway, I'm ordering a frame for it because I know it will turn out fine. !! I know my Labs! :-)

Hope you had a great weekend. Can't believe it's Wednesday all ready. Brushes will again be flying!!!

                                                           Warmly, Sheila

OIL ON COPPER THE BEGINNING PROCESS SHEILA WEDEGIS ART


This is a 10" x 10" start of an oil painting on copper.  One of my scenes from Scotland this past July. I may add a Lab, of course, but I wanted you to see my beginning process. I worked on this this afternoon while I had my students painting away on their projects. I jump up and down to see how they are progressing then return to paint.

Thank you to all who kindly sent best wishes about my Soph. It was so very much appreciated. I really couldn't talk much today, just sad, even though I feel her Spirit with me all the time. One day I had a home massage. My face was down the "hole" and of course Sophie had to come and see what I was doing.  She came under the front of the table, looked up and started licking my face, then stopped and smiled, then licked again.

Today I had a  massage and opened my eyes and smiled. I couldn't see her but I just know she wouldn't miss an opportunity like that!!

So, again, thank you!!! (xoxox)  It meant the world!!

Warmly, Sheila

THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY 9/11 SHEILA WEDEGIS ART


My sweet Spirit Muse Sophie. To say I miss her is an understatement.  She knew my soul and the reason I paint Labs. She was the reason I laughed every day. Chasing her with a shoe or my glasses. She never hurt them, it was a game for me to come after her.  I went one way and hid then jumped out and said "boo" . She smiled and wiggled with delight.

I must be stressing about the day because last night I dream't a snake was coming after me.  I started kicking and the next thing I knew I was on the floor surrounded in glass. I kicked my self out of the bed while hitting my head on the glass table shattering it. (not my head though I have a great gash over my eye)  So today home from the studio early and cuddling with Sammy and Ozzie.  (Fergus's, our chocolate Lab's anniversary was 5 days ago.)   Too much sadness but I would not have missed them for the world. My great loves...(with 4 legs)

So back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I stay in the bed tonight, or maybe I'll line the floor with pillows. Roger said it was really loud crashing then the thud!! I guess I was the thud! hahaha.

I'm fine...warmly, Sheila
