Sheepdog Enamel Art: Friendship
This enamel wall hanging was inspired by one of my own dogs, Murf, a fluffy Border Collie. Ireland is full of Sheepdogs because it is such a rural economy. Sadly a lot of them end up in animal shelters - Ash Animal Rescue in Wicklow is where my lovel Murf dog came from.
In order to get the clean lines of the dog, and to get the blackened border around the body I cut the dog out with a saw and enamelled each piece separately. Then when both the background and the dog were finished I put them together like a puzzle.
