wegman.terriTerri Wegman: “My work in the pastel medium has become my voice when interpreting what I see. Although still life painting remains one of my favorite genres, I have recently been painting portraits of the family dog. These could become my greatest challenge yet. What can be more meaningful than looking into the soulful eyes of a family pet?
