Angel Dogs – yes or no?

Finished other side of roof yesterday. Now working on the other wall of ‘Saints’ with the kennel propped at an angle against the wall with foam pipe-lagging in between to (hopefully!) avoid damaging the work I’ve done. (I think the next 2D picture I create is going to seem so easy now!)

My kennel is named Shrine to St Roch. He is the Patron Saint of dogs, (as well as falsely accused people and bachelors!)) Saint Roch was born in the 14th century and survived the plague, having (allegedly) been healed by a dog who licked a wound on his thigh. I’d had the idea to put a row of winged ‘angel dogs’ along the apex of the kennel. Placing them temporarily with bluetac, they somehow looked incongruous and out of keeping with the kennel as a whole. So now I’m wondering whether they’ll look better painted/sprayed gold??? I really want to use them…

    I think gold would be the way to go. They are so cute.

    Leave a space for them and when you’re ready, set them on top. You will be able to tell if you want them to be gold. I’m thinking you will…

      Hi Jane – I think you’re right – it will be the last thing – I hope I will know when the time comes! I am so enjoying this project – will be disappointed to finish it!

    I have just found your blog and have enjoyed reading about your fabulous art work. My understanding of St Roch (& the Holy Jammy Dodger) is a little bit different to yours. He’s quite a Big Thing in this area of France.If you scroll down a little on this post ( to the section “One Man & his dog” you can read the story as it’s told here;
