A few weeks ago, my friend Molly’s dog, Murray, had his eyes painted by artist Sheila Wedegis. She is dedicating all of March to painting dogs’ eyes, or as she puts it, the soul of the dog. Sheila posted an invitation to send our photo to her of our dog, and I sent her a picture of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Princess Fiona. I received an email the next day that she would be painting Fiona’s eye ! I started following Sheila’s blog and fell in love with her painting style, and how she captures their soul, through their eyes.
I can’t forget about Murray, and his mom Molly, who introduced me to Sheila’s work. Murray is a Golden Doodle, who has his own blog, Murray’s Mouth.
Born in Boston, Sheila Wedegis has spent most of her life in the New England area. Sheila relocated to Palm Bay, FL from Portsmouth, NH with her husband, Roger, three cats and her black lab, Sophie and chocolate lab, Fergus. Art has been her passion and expression since she was a child. Her formal training was at Butera School of Art in Boston, however her greatest growth has been in the actual “doing” …painting what she knows and loves
Through on going studies and workshops, observations and experimentation, there has been a constant rebirth with herself and her work. While grounding themselves in the realities of her life, Ms. Wedegis’ pieces contain an unmistakable spiritual essence.
“To touch the soul of one other person, to know they are not alone on this journey” is the dedication of her work and the reflection of her life’s journey.
Stop by and look at Sheila’s piece’s, I guarantee you will love her work.
Thank you Sheila!
